Which Greek Island Blog

Kamari

Kamari is a beach resort on the east coast of Santorini and it's arguably the best beach on the island. The village itself has loads of restaurants and a large portion of those are down by the sea front so you’ll get to soak in the views whilst enjoying your meal.

Imerovigli

Imerovigli is a small traditional village that lies at the highest point of the caldera, it has amazing views and traditional narrow cobbled streets, there's plenty of bars, restaurants and shops to keep you busy, plus it's only 2km from the buzzing nightlife of Fira.

Firostefani

Firostefani is located just north of the capital Fira and offers similar spectacular views out over the Caldera. Nightlife in Firostefani is good, there's a load of restaurants with several types of food from traditional Greek to barbecue, Italian and even Sushi.

Fira

Fira is the capital of Santorini, it's a beautiful town that looks like it’s grown out of the hillside with whitewashed and pastel coloured houses, upmarket hotels and restaurants offering stunning views out across the caldera and loads of nightlife options.

Finikia

Finikia is set among vineyards on the hills just west of Oia. It has typical Cycladic houses with whitewash walls and blue windows as well as some houses painted in other pastel shades making it a lovely place for a wander through the narrow cobbled streets.

Emporio

Emporio, also known as Nimborios is a traditional Cycladic village that's inland towards the south of Thira island just west of Perissa. It lies at the base of Mount Prophet Elias and is the largest settlement in Santorini with close to 2000 permanent residents.

Athinios

Athinios is actually the main port of Santorini, this is where the cruise ships land and the ferries for the other Greek islands are based as well. Around the harbour you’ll find a ton of car rental shops and tourist desks to book excursions or other activities.

Ammoudi

Ammoudi is a very small but charming port on the caldera below Oia, 214 steps below Oia to be exact, at the northern end of the main island of Santorini. There's a handful of restaurants, a couple of places to stay and some bars, all set in spectacular scenery.

Akrotiri

Akrotiri is a small village located at the southwestern end of Thira in Santorini. Akrotiri is not a developed tourist destination so don’t expect the sort of facilities you’d have in Fira or Oia. What it does have is a Cycladic charm about it, with the usual narrow streets.
