Beach holidays in Santorini
For a beach day with a lively atmosphere, head to the black sands of Perissa or Kamari. With plenty of beach bars and restaurants close by, warm black sands and crystal-clear waters, these beaches are perfect for families, couples and groups alike. If you’re looking for a completely unique beach experience then a visit to Red Beach is a must. Aptly named, this one-of-a-kind beach takes its name from the copper-toned sands and rock formations here. The rustic and rural nature of this beach means there’s not much else around so be prepared with plenty of water. But, don’t let that put you off, Red Beach is regarded by many locals as the most beautiful beach of Santorini – so a visit is definitely worth it.
Food and drink in Santorini
For a traditional Santorini lunch try the sfougato – a sort of quiche-meets-omelette with no pastry that combineseggs, courgettes and spearmint. Tomatokeftdes are a great way to start a meal or just as a tasty snack on the go – these tomato-based fritters are fried to perfection and perfect for dipping in hoummous. For a tasty evening meal, it has to be a good traditional Greek dish such as gyros, kofta or moussaka. While you may have eaten these many times at home, nothing can quite compare to the real deal. If you’re a seafood lover then the local dish of brantada has to be on your list of dishes to try Santorini. This delicate fish dish is made with flaky cod fillets in a delicate batter and dressed with a refined garlic sauce. As for drinks, the island is home to some world-class vineyards so a glass or two of wine is the perfect way to wash down the delicious food. Beer more your thing? The island’s local brewery, Santorini Brewing Company, produces a fantastic range of amazing beers. We recommend the Crazy Donkey IPA.
You’ve made the most of your days here but what about the nights? The Santorini nightlife is as diverse as it comes. Start the nightoff at any number of world-class restaurants, then forafter-dinner drinks, Fira is the island’s nightlife hotspot with cosy tavernas, chic bars and clubs to keep you dancing until sunrise. For a more laid-back vibe then head to the coastal towns of Perissa and Kamari where you’ll find a blend of sophisticated bars and late-night venues. And, of course, don’t forget to head to Oia for that infamous sunset shot!
