Our Guide To The Top Four Things To Do in Santorini

We’ve seen it splashed all over instagram, we’ve heard about its epic sunsets but nothing quite prepared us for the visual delights we were about to see. 
Rich with azure waters of the Aegean sea this dream like place is often referred to as the most romantic view on the planet. And with a mind blowing vista of the caldera, perfectly poised for sunset views there's no chance we were going to disagree!
With plunging volcanic mountains and hidden pebble beaches offering pristine pockets of seclusion this is somewhere to go and seriously unwind. Dotted with visions of sails, snorkels and sunsets it's no surprise that it's used as the Athenian A-list's coastal playground.
For centuries this grecian gateway of dreams has offered a peaceful hideaway for many a curious tourist seeking ultramarine waters and dazzling mediterranean views. From the second we arrived we fell in love with the surrounding visual beauty and charm. Careful not to fill your head with too much greek wine and wander in to the real estates on the island, within moments you'll be signing the property papers to one of the impossibly white sugar cube houses cascading down steep cliffsides with a one way ticket to a charmed life here.

The Four Things To Do

1  Rent ATV's for the day and ride to the Rocky Red Beach, it's like being on Mars for a minute. It takes about 40 mins to ride from one side of the island to the other but make sure you wear your helmets, the locals like to put their foot down. It's definitely worth driving up to the old lighthouse at the tip of the island and stop off at the secret beaches along the way

2  Wine Tasting head to the valley of grapes for an afternoon. Our favourite vineyard has to be Santo wines for a gallon of delicious local vino and a sensational view of the caldera

3  Boat Ride to the Volcano & dip your tootsies in the hot springs. Don't wear your favourite bikini though, lava and swimwear aren't best friends!

4  Catamaran cruise for the afternoon, get a serious tan on jump into the Aegean and finish off with the best view of the island at sunset. Seeing the famous white village from the sea is the icing on the cake, literally
