Santorini is one of the most popular islands of Greece, especially among honeymooners and first-timers.

It’s instantly recognizable for its whitewashed, cube-shaped buildings adorned with blue accents. Houses cling to the steep cliffs as tangerine sunsets light up the sky and Aegean Sea at sunset.

The traditional architecture of the white houses is to reflect the dazzling sunlight, keeping them cool.Cruise ships port in the water of Thira, and are boated in.

Tourists can take a gondola to the top of the hill, enjoy rides on donkeys, hike and shop.

Oja is a popular spot, and the most visited village in Santorini on the northwestern tip of the island. It’s filled with high-end boutique shops and fancy restaurants.  Here you can spot women taking photos in long flying dresses that flow with the wind.

Santorini was created 3,600 years ago from a volcanic eruption, covering it in pumice, volcanic ash, and lava and giving it its interesting shape. These ingredients are what give the black sand and pebble beaches their unique color.
