On our first morning in Santorini, we woke up to the view of the Caldera and Skaros Rock.
After a delicious breakfast at Grace Hotel, a digestive walk was in order, and looking at the view from our table we thought, why not climb Skaros Rock?
After switching our flip-flops for more hike-appropriate footwear, we headed to the rock. It is good to note that it is a hiking path, and at time a little physical, so please make sure to have the appropriate footwear otherwise you could slip easily.
After a little climbing we were able to enjoy the breathtaking views of the Caldera where the cruise boats park in the early hours of the morning.
We also saw some of the remains of the medieval city that was once built on the rock.
We walked a little further and turned around toward the main island to enjoy the jaw-dropping view of Firá.
From Skaros Rock you truly see how high Santorini is with the cliffs dropping a good few hundred meters into the sea.
A little further up, the path started to turn and we could get the first glimpse of Ekklisia Theoskepasti.
This little chapel clings to the edge of the rock and offers some postcard views of Santorini.
Pretty sweaty and satisfied with the effort made, we headed back to Grace Hotel for a refreshing dip in the plunge pool!
The hike on Skaros Rock really worth it! You will have some of the best views of Santorini without any tourists, plus you will burn some calories on the way!
