Hike to Oia from Imerovigli for the most beautiful views of the Caldera.

Climb Skaros Rock to see some traces of the ancient Santorini and find Ekklisia Theoskepasti church.

Rent a quad and go on a road trip. Visit the ancient site of Akrotiri. Lie down on the red sand of the Red Beach and the yellow sand of Vlychada Beach. Climb to the heights of Santorini and explore Pyrgos.

If you like sailing go on a sunset cruise for first row views of the sunset on the Caldera.

Celebrate your stay in Santorini with a wine tasting at Santo Wines.
