Santorini is one of my favorite places on earth even though it’s very touristy and not a hidden gem of any sort. Maybe it’s because I’m nostalgic (it was the first place that Andrew and I dreamed of visiting together) or maybe it’s because I love Europe so much but whatever it is, Santorini will always hold a special place in my heart.
I hope that these photos will inspire you to visit Santorini if you aren’t already planning a trip there. And if you’ve been hesitant to visit because of something you’ve heard, then I would tell you to reconsider this beautiful island. It really is a beautiful destination!
Santorini photos from the town of Oia
Oia was my favorite town without question. The town has a magnificent view at every corner; not only do you have ocean views surrounding you but you also can capture pretty views of windmills, cave houses and colorful buildings. Also cat lovers will enjoy the many cats that roam about.
Santorini photos from the town of Pyrgos
Pyrgos is a tiny village in Santorini. It’s more of a traditional village and pretty quiet. Definitely fun for a few hours of exploration.
Santorini photos from the famous red & black beaches
The red beach is a bit tricky to get to but just walk carefully and you’ll be fine. It truly is an amazing sight with its red-toned cliffs and beach.
The black beach is right off the road and is easy to grab a few snaps of. The town of Perissa is small as well so most come here for the beach.
