The stunning view

Santorini’s morphology gives the opportunity to enjoy magnificent views of the island, the volcano and the sea from many places.

Fira, Imerovigli, Oia, Akrotiri, Megalochori as well as all villages across the west coast provide beautiful views. There are many hotels with magnificent view in these areas, some of them with infinity pools at the edge of the cliffs. If you choose to stay at one of these hotels you will have the opportunity to enjoy the view even from your room.

If you are not staying in a hotel with view to the caldera, having a dinner in one of the restaurants with great view of the island, can be one of the highlights of your holidays!

Of course Oia is famous for its sunset, but the view from Akrotiti’s lighthouse is also amazing! Both Oia and Akrotiri are located at the two edges of Santorini, to the north and south respectively and thus offer uninterrupted views of the whole island!

Tip

A visit to Ancient Thira’s archaeological site, which is located on the top of Mesa Vouno, with an altitude of 369 meters, offers splendid views to the Aegean Sea!

On the top of Pyrgos castle you can also enjoy beautiful views to volcano, the whitewashed churches and vineyards.

On the east coast you can see the Aegean Sea and the neighboring small island of Anafi.
