New hotel alert! Hyatt, a beloved hotel chain by many will be opening a luxury resort in Santorini this summer! The resort will be name Magma Resort, after the magma that comes out of the famous volcanoes in Santorini. This resort will be pretty unique because Santorini is a tiny island so it will not be like those clunk mega resorts that you may see in other places. There will only be 59 rooms which is big for Santorini but small for everywhere else! Will any of you be checking it out this summer?
Volcanic beaches are unique because their soil and sand composition is from volcanic and ash from minerals left over from the Minoan eruption from 3,600 years ago. The explosion was as strong as 40 atomic bombs and produced 40 foot tsunamis. Some of the best beaches that we were blessed with after this explosion are Kamari, Monolithos, Perissa and the Read Beach of course. This is a wonderful picture of Perissa beach
Like I said in another post, I love visiting Greece in the winter because I get to love more like the locals. That being said, is Santorini too boring and quiet during the winter? Are many activities, resdaraunts and hotels even open? I would love to know!
