On an island of many wonders, there are so many things to do and enjoy. The Concierge of North Santorini will guide you through the best of handpicked experiences and offer you personalised recommendations according to your taste and preferences. Let us introduce you to Santorini and discover an island to fall in love with.
Shores of Many Colours
The massive volcanic eruption of 1600 BC left behind an amazing caldera formation and a coastline brimful of colours. The black shores are dominant and travellers will find several organized beaches, including Perivolos, Perissa and Kamari, as well as unspoilt strands, like the beaches of Koloumpos, Baxedes and Akrotiri. The volcanic Vlychada beach and Exo Yalos, close to Fira, complete the fascinating scene of Santorini’s coastal experiences. If you want more local tips and suggestions about the best options for beach-goers while on the island, our Concierge will guide you through all the details.
Unique Products of Wonderful Taste
The volcanic soil of Santorini created a wide range of premium products that you can taste locally everywhere on the island. The regional fava is cultivated here for more than 3.500 years and, along with the famous cherry tomatoes, it stands out among the Protected Designated Origin products of Santorini. Wild greens, white aubergine and fresh fish should also be at the top of your list with the local gastronomy musts. In North Santorini, you can enjoy the entire gamut of Santorini’s flavours; from tasty breakfast options to all-day snacks and intriguing gastronomy experiences at the restaurant, we will treat you to the best that the island has to offer.

Culture & History
The Milestones of Santorini
Santorini is not all about sunset views and romantic walks. It has a rich and diverse history, which is worth-discovering through an organized visit to the Prehistoric settlement of Akrotiri, the city buried under ashes and lava following the massive eruption of 1.600BC. Then drive to Ancient Thera, quietly nestled at the peak of Mesa Vouno, to enjoy the view and the ruins of a city built by Spartan settlers. To unpeel the Medieval heart of Santorini, visit the Casteli of Emporio, the Goulas of Akrotiri, as well as the Mansions of Pyrgos, Messaria and Oia. There are also plenty of Museums in Santorini, including the Prehistoric and the Archaeological Museums in Fira, the Naval Museum in Oia and the modern Lost Atlantis in Megalochori.
