Many of them have volcanic properties, with colourful sand and dramatic cliffs, such as the Red and White beaches near Akrotiri, and the grey and black beaches in the settlements of Kamari, Perissa, Perivolos and Monotlithos. Beneath the cliff of Oia Town are the beaches of Amoudi and Armeni, which are very picturesque and cater for the vacationers on the western side of the island.

Sightseeing on Santorini Island Greece is a magnificent experience, as two of the jewels of Ancient Greece are located here. Ancient Thira, which is situated on a hill above Kamari and Perissa, is an ancient city where visitors can see the remains of houses, a theatre, a stoa, sports facilities and sanctuaries. The panoramic view from Ancient Thira is amazing. The prehistoric settlement of Akrotiri is probably the most celebrated site on the island, and is the Greek equivalent to Pompeii. It is a whole settlement in tact, with roads, houses, stairs and an ancient sewage system that was covered in lava after a tremendous volcano eruption in the 17 th century BC. Some historians believe that Akrotiri is connected to the Lost Continent of Atlantis. In Fira and Oia, one should visit the wonderful museums, while a boat trip to the small volcanic isles opposite Santorini Island is a must. Wine aficionados can go on a wine tasting tour at the estates in the inland villages of Santorini.
