Looking for the perfect spot to propose, a magical setting for a wedding or the ultimate choice for a luxury honeymoon? With sparkling seas, gleaming white washed churches & the most incredible sunsets – Santorini truly is an island made for romance. If you’re planning a Santorini destination wedding read more for the most romantic spots…
This crescent shaped island is the top of a volcanic caldera, with steep cliffs running down into the Mediterranean Sea. Here are some of my favourite spots…
Oia – home of the luxury hotels and packed at sunset, Oia is popular for a reason. The sunsets here are incredible – bathing the white washed buildings and coloured roofs in beautiful golden light. Spend time walking round as by sunset it can be crowded so pick a spot, settle in and enjoy the incredible natural light show
Oia-Fira Hiking Trail – to escape Oia’s crowds, hike South along the crater’s edge from Oia towards Imerovigli and you’ll find little blue and white churches tucked away and breathtaking views over the ocean. You’ll also spot the odd cat and little cafes for a refreshing lemonade
Imerovigli – another lovely spot for sunset is the little Chapel of Theoskepasti near Skaros Rock with the ruins of a Venetian castle. The whitewashed church with it’s blue domed roof looks striking anytime of day, but against the amazing pink skies it is truly magical.
Finikia – a small village walking distance to Oia, with small winding pathways lined by tall white washed walls and friendly donkeys who carry supplies into the village. The little cobbled roads are filled with the scent of blossom and following one you will suddenly round a corner and get a view of the incredible blue sea.
