Hh Picks & Tips in Santorini!

Santorini is so much more than the obvious. You’ve read the guidebooks, followed the Instagrams, and even dedicated a Pinterest board to your trip.There's a lot more to this amazing island than whitewashed houses, black beaches and iconic sunsets. Escape the tourist traps and explore your own path...

Best things to do in Santorini

Stroll around Pyrgos, Emporio and Megalohori traditional mainland villages. Dive into history and tales from a long past with pirates, conquerors and unique traditions.

Oia is one of the Best Places to go in Santorini

Visit Oia. But NOT for the sunset! or else be prepared for crazy traffic, pushy tourists, and packed out restaurants. Unfortunately, because the Oia sunset is so iconic, the little town becomes a tourist trap each evening from about 5 pm onwards. Why not go at sunrise instead? Honestly, it's just as beautiful, maybe even more....

Ammoudi Bay in Santorini

Step down to Ammoudi below Oia to eat fresh fish after a cliff-dive in the deep blue waters of the Caldera at the St. Nikolas rock. Avoid Sunset time for the same reasons avoiding Oia....

Open-air cinema in Santorini

Watch a movie whilst drinking your cocktail at the open-air cinema at Kamari. Rated one of the top open air cinemas in the world!

Santorini Arts Factory

Look for events at the Santorini Arts Factory (SAF), a cultural center & industrial heritage at the lunar landscape of Vlihada beach

Excavations site in Akrotiri Santorini

Visit the breathtaking excavations site at Akrotiri, one of the most important prehistoric settlements of the Aegean.

As for the Santorini famous sunset? (except your own terrace of course 😉)

Go to the lighthouse at the end of the island. Pure bliss!

Best spot for Santorini sunset

There is lots more! Hidden beaches away from crowds, small restaurants offering the best dishes ever by locals, art & cultural spaces dug into the rock, small family wineries...
