Santorini – Cyclades Trip

We finish the Cyclades trip with Santorini. I had a real crush on the volcano and hot springs – it was a great experience, and the village of Oia, so picturesque and pleasant. But, in my opinion, three days in enough.

Beaches Tour : Red Beach, White Beach, Black Beach

13-101

Boats full of people, small private beaches of pebbles, no shade. A nice boating activity but nothing exceptional, for me the beaches doesn’t worth it.

Oia

Pretty little village, Oia (pronounced Ia), is “the place to be”. Picturesque alleys, breathtaking views, beautiful little restaurants …

The sunset is obviously amazing, but I do not think it is worth the wait and the crowd present (this is really an adventure, trust me !)

Oh Greece, you caught my heart !

The end.
