My Favorite Photos from Santorini

My Favorite Photos from Santorini

Our trip to Santorini was wonderful, and we stayed there for 4 days, in Perissa and Imerovigli. You can tell that this place was made for romance, and it was both fun and cozy to explore it by scooter and walking!

I got so many photos from here, but this is a collection of my favorite photos from Santorini. Not in any particular order. Every photo is also accompanied by a small describing text where it was taken. Hope you enjoy the photos!

Sunset in Santorini

The sunsets are incredible here, and should almost be a reason enough to book your tickets.

The sunsets in Santorini are magical, and this was taken on our second evening driving around the Southern part.

The colors are so intense! It’s not unusual either to see a sunset like this in Santorini

View from our hotel in Imerovigli. You can also see the famous Skaros Rock in the background.

Red Beach

One of the most popular tourist attractions. Located on the South Coast, but also easily accessible from Thira, Oia, and Imerovigli. You can go here by scooter, rental car or taxi, or even a tourist bus. When entering the car park, it’s about 10 minutes walking from there to get to this viewpoint.

Santorini Red Beach

The majestic Red Beach. Perhaps not the best bathing spot, but great scenery!

Christine, enjoying the view :)

Pyrgos

One of the most picturesque villages that I’ve ever been to. It’s just like a Greek fairy tale, and a must to visit!

Charming Pyrgos is a true gem to explore! Just walk around and stroll along the small alleys.

Santorini Perissa

The black sand beach in Perissa. One of the most famous tourist attractions in Santorini.

Oia

Pronounced “Iya” by the locals. It’s by far one of the world’s most famous postcard places and with a good reason. And some good news, it’s almost impossible to not get good vacation photos from here!

Santorini Alex

Another postcard place in Santorini. If you’ve ever seen any postcard from here, this place might be it. And it’s actually not that easy to find if you don’t know what to look for. It’s a small back alley to the left when entering the main shopping street.

The Iconic windmill in Santorini is another classic postcard place and a photographer dream.

Last but not least, don’t forget to eat Greek food while going here.

It’s delicious, and if you ever go to Pyrgos, Penelope’s is a nice authentic restaurant with a view. It’s also run by an elderly couple that speaks just a little English, which makes it even more charming!
