Santorini (also called Thera) is so much more than whitewashed houses overlooking a caldera; it’s also about tradition and history. To truly appreciate this Cycladic island and its surroundings, separate yourself from the sunbed and plan a day trip, ticking off traditional villages, ancient sites and volcanic islets with our what-not-to-miss list.
For a more exclusive experience, book a private cruise on a luxurious yacht; whether tailor-made or with a fixed schedule, the cruise will allow you to swim in idyllic spots while avoiding the crowds. Dive into Palea Kameni’s hot springs, try snorkelling at the White Beach, swim under the Indian Rock in Akrotiri and watch the sunset, submerged in the water. Dinner, drinks and snorkelling equipment are all included in the price.
