After a hectic time in Mykonos it felt so good to hop over to Santorini to a hotel room right next to a pool with air con – luxury after two nights sweating to death in a non AC box room in Mykonos! We stayed in the area of Perissa, quiet and understated with the best beaches we’d been to so far. We spent the majority of our time in Santorini exploring the island – one day we literally quad biked all the way around it! Oia, at the North of the island, is just as beautiful as it looks. The view overlooking the Caldera is so amazing. We also visited the Red beach and found a few other niche beaches down little dirt tracks. Our quad bike was pretty knackered as we got it cheap so on one occasion I did have to jump off and push us up a hill! If you want to explore and go on interesting excursions then Santorini is the Greek island for you. We went on a boat excursion one day to the active volcano – we climbed all the way to the top in the searing heat and then afterwards swam in the hot springs nearby.
