The instant calm induced by the azure waters lapping against Santorini’s dramatic cliffs makes this Greek getaway one of the most coveted destinations for romance — and honeymoons. After all, the cluster of five islands — main crescent-shaped Thíra, plus the smaller Thirassiá, Asproníssi, Palea Kaméni, and Nea Kaméni sitting inside it — offer some of the most stunning sunset views in the Cyclades. So it’s jarring to realize that this dramatic natural beauty came out of 12 major volcanic eruptions, 20,000 years apart, the last of which caused the underwater caldera (volcanic crater), giving Thíra its round center.
Santorini sits in the Aegean Sea about 92 miles south of Mykonos. The fastest way to get there from mainland Greece is by a 45-minute plane ride from Athens International Airport Eleftherios Venizelos (ATH), with service year-round. During the summer months, direct service from dozens of European cities — including London, Milan, Helsinki, and Munich — also take flight. For seafaring travelers, ferry service departs from Athens’ Piraeus port, with the trip length varying from 5 to 10 hours, depending on the type of ship (overnight service is available). Once you’re on Santorini, traveling on foot is the ideal way to experience the winding streets, plus the best places tend to be within walking distance (but mopeds are popular too!). Bus service connects the major towns on Thíra, while there’s also taxi service on Thíra and Thirassia.
Travelers flock to the island for its Mediterranean climate, with peak season in the summer when temperatures range from the 70s to mid-80s Fahrenheit. September and October stay in the mid-60s to 70s, with fewer crowds, making it an ideal time to visit. October starts the rainy season, which lasts through March (peaking in December and January), with temperatures mostly in the 50s. But April and May bring flowers and less rain, as well as a comfortable climate from the mid-50s to mid-70s. Beachwear dominates the wardrobe in the warm months, though a long-sleeved shirt or coverup is useful starting in September. Definitely pack rain gear and a jacket from October through March, and hang on to those light sweaters in April and early May.
Located on the east coast about four miles southeast of the main city of Fira, this black sand beach is also one of Santorini’s largest, boasting sea views complemented by Mesa Vouno Hill. The resort town’s promenade is filled with al fresco restaurants and lively nightlife.
On the southeast corner of Thíra sits this coastal village, known for Timios Stavros Church (with its blue domes), the Museum of Minerals and Fossils, and its own black sand beach.
The 6-mile walk along the caldera is one of the island’s most iconic experiences, as it passes through the towns of Imerovigli and Firostefani, while offering ocean views along the way. While it’s possible both directions, starting in Fira is a bit more of a downhill route.
