So here are the best places to stay in Santorini to make your trip to this gorgeous island unforgettable.
The iconic town of Fira is situated on a volcanic cliff overlooking the caldera. Is the largest town of Santorini. Because it’s so popular, Fira has a lot of the classic stuff that travelers are accustomed to in Santorini, including plenty of restaurant choices for having a dinner or lunch while enjoying the breathtaking view. Also there are plenty of options for shopping. The city has a good nightlife, and it’s the perfect place to have a romantic night on Friday or Saturday. There are plenty of villas and hotel options with great locations so you will have access to some of the best views of the caldera.
Oia is known for being one of the most beautiful places in Santorini. It is the second largest town of Santorini. The town has many whitewashed houses with white washed rooftops. Some are featured as private residences and some are hotels. Each house has a unique view. The town is a perfect place for honeymooners and couples. It offers this amazing caldera and sunset view. We recommend you also go for a swim in the Ammoudi bay and take a sailing tour across the Caldera. This will become a memorable experience.
This town is around 25 minutes walk from Fira, but it is also a real gem. Imerovigli is home to a number of hotels and restaurants that are open all year long. It offers the best caldera and sunset view. Imerovigli is built on the highest point of the caldera cliffs and there is no doubt that it’s a “Balcony to the Aegean”. It is a perfect place for relaxation and enjoying the beauty that the island has to offer.
If you are a man of the sea then you can stay in Kamari where the advantage here is that you are away from the crowds crowded in the Caldera and also you are by the sea. Kamari is the product of the rapid development of tourism and that is why it is full of hotels, bungalows and rooms for rent, as well as taverns, bars, cafes and souvenir shops. Many tourists prefer to spend their holidays there, because the sea is close, although the sand is black. Like most beaches in Santorini.
In contrast to the usual number of tourists in Fira, Kamari is considered a more family oriented destination.
