I am in the process of choosing a hotel to visit in Santorini this summer and it seems that many of the hotels are smaller and more boutique style and don't have pools. Does anyone know if the bigger hotels with pools offer non guest day passes? I would still love to chill by the pool one day and order drinks and snacks to my pool chair. Any advice? Thanks :)

I have no idea, but I would love to know the answer this question for the next time I go to Santorini.
 
The answer is yes. There are some hotels that would allow you to use their swimming pool. The price for that most of the times is that you have a minimum consumption on food and drinks per sun bed or per umbrella.
What part of Santorini are you looking to stay in?

Why would you need pools when you’re in a country with beautiful beaches?

Red Dress Photo in Santorini?

I'm planning a trip to Santorini soon and have always dreamed of capturing that iconic red dress photo against the stunning white and blue backdrop of the island. I’ve seen so many beautiful images online and would love to create something similar during my visit.

Could anyone provide some advice on the best way to go about this? I heard there was a business associated with this shot? Is that true? If so, how do I contact them?

Atlantis Theory of Santorini - Question

I'm intrigued by the theory that Santorini could be the location of Atlantis, as described by Plato. The history, the archaeological sites, and the unique geology of the island seem to offer clues worth exploring.

  1. Atlantis Theory: For those of you well-versed in the Atlantis theory regarding Santorini, could you share your insights or any interesting pieces of evidence that link the island to the legend? Are there specific sites that hint at this ancient mystery?
  2. Must-Visit Spots: Beyond the Atlantis connection, I'd love recommendations for must-visit spots on the island. I'm particularly interested in places that offer not just stunning visuals but also a piece of the island's rich history and culture.
  3. Travel Tips: Any travel tips for a first-time visitor to Santorini? Best times of the year to visit, places to stay, culinary experiences not to miss, and tips for navigating around the island would be greatly appreciated!
  4. Personal Stories: And of course, I’d love to hear any personal stories or unique experiences you had while visiting Santorini. Especially if it relates to the lore and allure of Atlantis!
I am curious what you guys think of all this!

Budget trip to Santorini?

I'm in the early stages of planning a dream trip to Santorini, but I'm trying to do it on a tighter budget and would love any advice you could share.

Santorini’s stunning views, iconic blue domes, and sunsets have been on my travel list for years, and I'm finally taking the leap to make it happen. Given its reputation as a luxury destination, I'm looking for ways to experience the best of Santorini without breaking the bank.

If you have tips on affordable accommodation (are hostels a good option here, or should I be looking at another type of lodging?), budget-friendly eating spots that don't skimp on the experience, and must-see sights that won’t cost a fortune, I’m all ears.

Also, if there are particular times of the year that are more budget-friendly than others, I'd really appreciate insights on that as well. Plus, any advice on getting around the island affordably would be a huge help.

Last but not least, if there are any lesser-known gems or tips for experiencing Santorini like a local, I’d love to hear about those too.

Advice for Santorini Nightlife?

I'm planning a trip to Santorini soon and would love some recommendations on where to experience the best nightlife. I've heard the island has a lot to offer, from beach bars to nightclubs, but I'd appreciate some personal insights on must-visit spots.

Specifically, I'm interested in:
  • Beach Bars: Any cool places where I can enjoy a drink with a seaside view?
  • Nightclubs: Where are the best places to dance the night away?
  • Unique Experiences: Any hidden gems or local favorites that I shouldn't miss?
  • Dress Codes: Are there any dress codes or etiquette tips I should be aware of?
Thanks in advance for sharing your tips and experiences! Looking forward to an unforgettable time in Santorini.

View the natural and unique geography of Santorini

I love visiting Santorini because to me, it's physically beautiful. I find it enchanting because of how unique the landscape is.

About 3,600 years ago, the island experienced a colossal volcanic event, known as the Minoan eruption. This event was so massive that it significantly altered the landscape, creating the caldera—a giant central lagoon surrounded by high cliffs on three sides. The eruption also played a pivotal role in shaping the ancient civilizations of the area.

Santorini's geological wonders don't stop at the caldera. The island boasts unique beaches with varying colors of sand and pebbles—red, black, and white—thanks to its volcanic nature. Visiting these beaches is like stepping onto another planet.

So, I plan to go again this year and check it out. Some of the places I love are Red Beach, Oia (I plan to stay in Oia), and I love doing that hike from Fira to Oia during sunset.What do you love to do in Santorini?
