Boat tour in Santorini.

A Private Catamaran Cruise to the hot springs and around the Santorini caldera is one of my favorite things to do in Greece.

Boat Tours of the Santorini Caldera & Volcano A boat tour of the caldera is among my very favorite things to do in Santorini . Unforgettable and a must-do! Don’t worry too much about which tour you book – they’re all good. Emphasis should be on getting something booked in advance before they sell out for your dates. Day tour or sunset tour? There is not a huge difference between the two types of tours beyond the time of day. A day tour/cruise usually runs from 9 or 10 am to 3 pm, serves lunch, and has lots of swimming. A sunset tour/cruise runs from about 3 pm to 8 or 9 pm, serves dinner, has a little less swimming than the day tour, and typically finishes by sailing beneath the Oia cliffs to watch the sunset. Private boat tour or small group tour? I’ll be honest, I definitely prefer the private boat tours . You get more input on where to go, how long to spend at different spots, what music to listen to, and (sometimes) where you get dropped off at the end. Yes, private tours are more expensive but I’d be shocked if anyone regretted the money they spent once they’re on the boat. The description says, “all you can eat and drink”, is that really true? Yes, but with some differences between tours. The private tours bring the drinks out before you’ve left the harbor. The less-expensive tours hold-off for a bit until the boat gets to the first destination and you’ve had a swim, which might be an hour to two, but after that, it’s an open bar. There are no ferries to the volcano. The only way to do a volcano tour is to do a boat tour. You can not access the volcano unless you’re part of an organized (private or group) tour. All boat tours have great views of the caldera cliffs. Cruise options include: hike the volcano; swim in the hot springs (you can always stay on the boat if you wish); visit Thirassia and explore its villages; stop at Red Beach and White Beach to swim and snorkel; eat lunch or dinner on board, and watch the sunset below Oia. is the best way to book tours in Santorini. If you ever need to cancel it’s usually much easier if you’ve booked through Get Your Guide.

The 8 Best Boat Tours in Santorini

All boat tours below provide meals onboard and have hotel pick-up and drop-off (which doesn’t sound like a big deal when you’re booking but makes the day so much easier and hassle-free when the time arrives). Also, all tours enter the caldera, sail to or near the volcano, and have plenty of swimming and snorkeling . Food on the tours ranges from surprisingly good to great. And the boats are very generous with their alcohol – after every tour, I ask myself how they make money when they’re so lavish with the food and drink. 1. Small Group Catamaran Cruise Sunset Cruise (2:45pm departure) or Day Cruise (9:45am departure). Awesome cruise around the volcano, staring up at the cliffs of the caldera. You stop at a few beaches for swimming and snorkeling, then swim in the hot springs near the volcano, eat a huge lunch or dinner, and finally see the sunset from the cliffs below Oia (for the sunset cruise). Lots of fun! If this tour is fully booked then try the Caldera Cruise or Santorini Sunset Cruise . 2. Private Catamaran Cruise

Wonderful private cruise of the caldera. Great food and plenty of flexibility on what to see and where to sail. Ideal for a luxury honeymoon cruise, small group, or family. The day tour departs at 10:30am, the sunset-tour departs at 3:30pm. Both tours last 5 hours. Be prepared to be insanely pampered. If the above tour is fully booked – which is common from June to September – then try the Private Sunset Cruise . 3. Santorini Day Cruise Wonderful day tour with great food and friendly staff (10:00am departure). You can’t go more than 5 minutes without someone asking if you want another beer or glass of wine. But it’s far from a drinking cruise – the emphasis is on swimming, snorkeling, and sunbathing on the top of the catamaran. You’ll visit a few beaches and the hot springs and have plenty of time to explore the sights of the caldera. (I did this boat tour last summer and it was awesome.) 4. Private Cruise on a Motor Yacht This is an incredible way to see the Santorini cliffs and stare up at the villages perched on the caldera’s edge. The motor yachts allow for much more freedom in getting around the volcanic islands and seeing the caldera from every different angle. On a catamaran, you feel like you’re on vacation. On the motor yachts it feels a little more like you’re on an adventure (though there’s still plenty of swimming, snorkeling, eating, and drinking). 5. Volcano Boat Tour Much less expensive and with a larger boat and group of people but still very fun. This tour is almost the opposite of the Sunset Catamaran Cruise. You get the volcano, hot springs (with swimming), and a visit to Thirassia island – but no beaches or going outside the caldera, and no sunset. This is the cheapest boat tour of the caldera. 6. Santorini Fishing Tour This tour is very well done and lots of fun. Boat around the Santorini waters on a local fishing boat. Fresh seafood lunch or dinner served on board (eat what you catch and empty from the nets). The daytime tour is best for families and serious fishermen. The sunset tour is best for couples. 7. Santorini Jet Ski Tour Not a boat tour, obviously, but super fun. We’ve done a couple of these tours (it’s always a small group of 2 to 4) to the volcano and they rank as some of the most exhilarating activities we’ve ever done. (That’s my son in the photo, 14 years old at the time.) The perspective you get as you ride through the caldera is awe-inspiring. A boat travels with the tour and is there for any emergencies or if the water gets too rough for beginner riders. The South Coast Tour is fun, but to see the volcano and caldera (which I recommend) you need to do the Volcano Tour or Extreme Volcano Tour. I would be shocked if anyone did this tour and at its conclusion didn’t yell, that was awesome!!! 8. Sea Kayaking Excursion A fun and easy-going way to explore the Santorini coastline. The Morning Tour and Evening Tour stick to the south coast of the island. The Round The Lighthouse Tour goes into the caldera and offers incredible views of the caldera cliffs.

About Santorini Dave

Santorini Dave

Hi Dave – great site with so much information!

My partner and I can’t decide which tour to go on in July – we want to do the volcano excursion, see the sunset at Oia onboard but also see the south coastline (mainly the red beach).

Is it best to do a cheaper volcano boat tour on one day and then a catamaran sunset cruise on another (we are visiting for 6 days). Or I saw you’ve posted about water taxis to see the different beaches, so I guess we can do the volcano boat tour and then take the bus (or drive) to Akrotiri and make our way to the beach?

We haven’t decided on whether to rent a car or use the buses. I’ve seen you posted about pros/cons of both types of transport. I think our main consideration is the wait for buses due to peak season vs the cost of renting a car. Or maybe we rent a car for part of our trip.

Thank you so much!

' src=

As much as I love and recommend boat tours, I generally would not recommend doing two different boat trips. I think that time is better spent exploring the island, and yes, taking the water taxi between southern beaches is a good option. I would rent a car for two or three days and use the bus the other days. The boat tours will have hotel pick up, so you need not worry about transportation that day.

' src=

Dave: When you go swimming on these boat trips (especially one going to hot springs), where can you keep your valuables, e.g. your camera? It would be terrible to lose your photos. I am a trustworthy person, but wonder what other people do to avoid any problems. You can’t swim with a camera.

Honestly, it’s never been anything I’ve considered. It’s usually a small group of people and there’s never an issue with leaving your stuff. I suppose you could leave it with one of the staff, but I expect they’d just laugh and say, this is Greece, your stuff is fine, go swim.

' src=

Hi Dave, thanks so much for all your recommendations. How choppy are these boat rides? I am concerned about sea sickness if you have any specific recommendations? Thanks so much!

The boat tours are typically pretty calm. Most time is in the protected caldera waters and if the sea is really rough the tour will be cancelled, in any case. The boat tours are definitely less rough than the worst ferry rides, so if you’re ok on the ferry you’ll be fine on a boat tour.

' src=

Just found this fantastic website – thanks Santorini Dave, have been finding it really useful! One question about the boat tours please, we’d like to do one, will they take 5 year olds? Thank you

Unless otherwise stated, boat tours allow all ages.

' src=

Hi, Dave My friend and I are considering to book the Private Catamaran Cruise. Could you please give us some ideas about the range of the gratuities we should provide? Thanks!

Tipping in the 10% to 20% is appreciated. But the more the better – holiday workers really rely on tips to make a living wage.

' src=

Hi Dave – are there any boat trips available from Santorini that are maybe just 2-3 hours instead of a half or full day? Would like to be able to swim and just see some beautiful scenery, but will have a 4-year-old and husband that might be debatable if he would get sea-sickness so 5 hours feels like a big commitment. We’re staying in Oia – what might you suggest? We’ll only be on Santorini for 2 nights/1.5 days before moving on to Naxos. Thanks for all of your excellent insights!

There are no shorter tours on Santorini. Though if you booked a private boat tour (expensive, obviously) they would return you to port whenever you wanted. I will say the 5 hours goes very quickly. The only other option (as far as getting on a boat) is the ferry to Thirassia or the water taxis along the south coast beaches.

' src=

We are visiting Santorini the first week of November, will the water be too cold for these awesome excursions with swimming in hot springs and volcanoes? And if it is, is it still worth doing?

Yes, it likely will be too cold to swim for most (though not impossible for the bold). And also yes, it’s definitely still worth doing a boat tour even if you don’t swim. Views and perspective from the water are incredible any time of year.

' src=

Hi Santorini Dave

I’m looking to travel next year by myself possibly in May/September, which area of Santorini would you recommend I stay? I’m debating the time I’ll be staying but it will be between 5 or 7 nights.

Also, would you recommend any day trips to another island?

Many thanks, Alison.

I have several posts on this site about where to stay on Santorini and best towns and beaches. Take a look. In general, I do not recommend day trips to other islands. With the ferry schedules, it’s difficult to get more than a few hours on neighboring islands when you do a day trip. It’s much better to pack your bags and move to whatever island you want to see.

' src=

I’m going to Santorini and Mykonos for 8 days. Do you think it’s worth doing a boat tour on each island? I’ll only have 3 days in Mykonos.

Definitely do a boat tour in Santorini. For Mykonos it’s more of a toss-up. (If greek cooking sounds interesting to you, I’d probably do the cooking course instead of a boat tour.)

' src=

Hi Dave, Thanks for all the information on this site. Is there a sailing trip that just goes for a trip around the caldera, with no swimming or snorkeling? Maybe with the option of seeing the volcano close up and also the sunset? Thanks, Tansen.

Pretty much all tours have swimming but you don’t have to do it if you don’t want to. And while others are swimming you can just relax on deck and gaze at the views. The tour carries on even when some are swimming so it’s not as if you just sit there on your own, bored – there’s still plenty of fun on board the boat.

' src=

Do you think boat tours are fine during winter season? Otherwise, do you have any recommendations for winter excursions?

Many thanks in advance.

If by winter, you mean December, January, and February then there will be few (if any) boat tours running and I don’t think I’d recommend them. If, instead, you might be visiting in March and get some good weather then they’ll be fine (though still not many running). A wine tour is a great year-round thing to do in Santorini. And walking the Fira-Oia path.

' src=

For the boat tours, do you need to swim to the beach or is walkable to the shore once they dock as close as they can? We’re not great swimmers and if that’s requirement we’ll have to book another boat tour.

For tours that visit the volcano, the boat will dock and you’ll be able to walk off without getting wet. For tours that visit the hot springs, the boat will anchor about 30 to 50 meters from the hot spring area and you’ll need to swim to the warm water. Otherwise, most tours stop near a beach for swimming and snorkeling but don’t really directly visit the beach. You’re fine staying on the boat and viewing the scenery (which is great) while others swim. On most tours about half the people swim and half remain on the boat, so it’s unlikely you’re the only one left on the boat while everyone else is off playing.

' src=

Will the boat tour to the volcano and hot spring be suitable for those who get sea sick?

Generally, it’s usually pretty calm. Depending on where you depart from most of the tour will be inside the protected caldera. Catamarans are more stable than single-hull boats.

' src=

We are taking our kids to Santorini the last week of March. What private boat tour would you recommend to take for the volcano tour?

It’s not so much what is the best tour but more what is available. As the time grows closer (February or early March) search Getyourguide for Santorini Boat Tours and choose the most appropriate.

' src=

I tried to book the private boat tour and the sunset tour above but both were fully booked for our dates. Do you have another good boat tour that you could recommend? Preferably a private one. Thanks!

There’s another Spiridakos boat tour that is excellent and very similar to the private tour I’ve listed above. It has departures of 10:30 (day tour) and 3:30 (sunset tour).

' src=

Dave, your advice on this site is awesome and very detailed. My fiancee and I are going to be in Santorini in August for our honeymoon and are definitely booking one of the boat tours, but we just can’t decide on whether to do a day or sunset voyage. Anything you can tell us that would help make our decision easier? Not sure if this has an effect on the analysis, but we are staying in Imerovigli which I understand has nice views of the sunset. Thanks!!

There’s not a huge difference: the day tour has more swimming time, the sunset tour has more evening hours. Be sure to take a change of clothes for the sunset tour (it can get chilly at night). The sunset tour has a later starting date which allows you to do something in the morning.

' src=

Hello Dave.

I’ll be staying in santoniri for a day this November. Arrive Friday morning to either Katikies or Kirini hotel, and then leave late Saturday afternoon to Athens. (Though I have to check out from my hotel by 12pm). Would you recommend a boat tour? If yes, which would it be. My issue mainly time and not price.

Both the 5-Hour Caldera Cruise at Sunset (3pm departure) and the 5-Hour Small Group Catamaran Cruise (9:30am and 2:30pm departure) run into late November. Both are great tours.

' src=

I am about to book the semi-private boat tour and we are going the last week of June into July (which, from what I understand, is a very crowded time of year). Do you think that the day of the week that we book the day tour matters much (Friday vs. Saturday vs. Monday)? I assume everyone on board is likely vacationing so I’m not sure if this would be significant, but if it may make a different in terms of the number of people on board, I’d love to know. Thanks!

There’s no difference between days of the week and busyness. Do whatever works best.

' src=

I have 3 full days in Santorini in the beginning of July. I’m looking into a boat tour or sea kayaking. Is it worth it to do both? What would you suggest? Thanks for your amazing resources!!

If you can only do one do the boat tour but if time allows do both, as they each have a very different feel. It’s a more surreal feeling being in a kayak at water-level looking up at the huge cliffs (depending where your tour goes). But you do get to do more when on the boat tour – it’s a more complete introduction to the caldera.

' src=

I am looking to book the sunset catamaran trip this summer. In the check out it asks for passport information. I just wanted to check this was a normal request/it’s safe to provide my information to this company?

Yes, it’s safe and secure. The information is requested by the port authority but it’s never used. You could put in your correct name and then just make up a letter/number combination for the passport number. They’ll never know and never look at it.

' src=

We are going to Santorini for one day in July via fast ferry from Crete. Are there any shorter cruises around Santorini that we can do in that window of time that we will be there?

No, sorry. There’s no boat tour (that I know of) that would get you back in time to get your return ferry to Crete.

' src=

We will be in Santorini for 3 days after ferries from Athens-Mykonos then Mykonos-Santorini. We were thinking of taking the ferry to Milos for a day trip. Is it reasonable to do in a day or will we be ferried out? Thanks for your insight, love reading all of your suggestions.

Not worth it. If you want to visit Milos stay at least 2 nights and 1 full day.

' src=

Hi Dave, I’m planning a honeymoon in Greece this upcoming May and your site has been an amazing resource – thanks! Quick question: Is May too early for the boat tours that have swimming? Thanks.

Yes, they’ll be running in May (usually start in April) and you’ll be able to swim. But water can still be a bit chilly. And note, hot springs are not “hot” just warm.

' src=

Hi there, I love to read and follow all of your posts so thank you for always having the most up to date information! We will be in Santorini in July and I would like to do a catamaran tour of the island and go into caves and see some of the hidden gems of Santorini. Is there a tour or boat that would do that? Also, is there a boat that will take you to Mykonos for a day and back to Santorini? Thank you, Alissa

I don’t know of any boat tours that take in caves. And don’t know of any Santorini to Mykonos tours either. There are much better islands to visit on a day tour from Santorini. Ios for beaches, Naxos for inland sightseeing. (That said, I typically don’t recommend doing a day trip from Santorini as time is much better spent on Santorini than on a boat. If you do want to see another island then stay a night or two to see it best.)

' src=

I am looking for a beach hopping trip in Santorini to visit the Black Beach, Red Beach, White beach etc. tour starts at 4PM or 5PM. How much for 2 people?

For these beaches best to do it yourself with this boat from Akrotiri . It will be 10€ per person round trip. Can also take a different boat back to Kamari (if you were taking the bus, if you’ve got your own car then you’ll need to return to Akrotiri). Last boat is about 6:30pm (but double check) so you won’t have a lot of time.

' src=

Hi Dave – Awesome site. Just became a patron!

Trying to select the right boat tour for my husband and I (going in a few weeks!). They all seem great so it’s hard to select. What are the key differences between these three tours:

Semi-Private Luxury Catamaran Day Cruise 5-Hour Small Group Catamaran Cruise Sunset Catamaran Sailing Cruise in Caldera

In particular, trying to understand if it’s worth paying the premium for the semi-private luxury catamaran day cruise.

Many thanks! Lily

The single biggest difference is whether the tour goes through the day or in the late afternoon (and gets the sunset). The 5-hour small group tour is cheaper than the other two but will have a few more people on the boat and the food served is not quite as robust as for the semi-private and sunset catamaran cruises. More appetizers than the full meal you get on the other two. Fewer drinks are served as well. All 3 are great and you’ll love whatever you choose. My advice is to first decide whether you want the sunset or more sun/swimming.

Would like to do a private boat tour of caldera. It’s our honeymoon and want a super special day out on the water with food, wine, swimming, snorkeling, and the hot springs. Maybe take in the sunset too, but as you say, it’s a choice between more swimming/sunshine and sunset/evening so not sure what we’ll decide. What’s the best tour to book for our needs?

Thanks, Colin

The Private Half-Day Catamaran Cruise of Santorini is simply awesome. It is expensive but I’m sure you’re expecting that already. There’s a morning departure (for lots of swimming and sunshine) and an afternoon departure (for the sunset – but still plenty of time to swim too). Food is top notch. If it’s within your budget this is the one you want. (If you do the sunset tour bring a change of clothes so you can change out of your wet swimming stuff and enjoy the sunset without a chill.)

' src=

We are visiting Santorini in the next few weeks. Is there a ferry that 2 people can take on their own and explore the volcano/hot springs, or is it only by tour? Please let me know! Much appreciated. Gabriel M

There are no ferries to the volcano or hot springs. You have to do a tour or a chartered/private tour. There are small boats that do regular routes to the neighboring island of Thirassia (that forms the western side of the caldera) but this isn’t the volcano.

We are looking for the best sunset tour around Santorini. Our only concern is that we also want lots of swimming. If we do the sunset tour will we have enough time to swim?

Thanks Miller

Not sure what you mean by “enough” but you’ll certainly get a good stretch of time to swim. It won’t be 10 minutes and let’s go. More like 2 to 3 hours.

From the mini bus transfer with Bus Leader, picking us up at the local bus stop from our hotel, the scenic drive to the Port of Athinios, the gorgeous Aphrodite sailing ship, the crew and their diligence in looking after all the passengers, their knowledge and skills in giving you the information when participating in the walk to the volcano and the swim in the thermal waters, the Greek dinner on board, finishing up with the traditional Zorba dance and the stunning views of the sunset over Oia. Recommended this particular trip to other guests staying at our hotel, Olympia, in Perivolos. Cannot recommend this trip highly enough. Fantastic experience and the highlight of our trip for mum and I.

This entire experience was absolutely fabulous! The boat, Ulysses, our guide was funny, energetic and knowledgeable. The hot springs, volcano , dinner and sunset were great. Perfect way to see and experience the caldera!!

Spectacular scenery, from the volcano, to the crater, to the sheer cliffs and views from below. Guide was great! We especially enjoyed when the sails were unfurled for the sunset viewing at the end and of course a Greek dance for all at the end!

This was the BEST tour I have ever been on! The tour guide was amazing, knew so much about the history of the Island and surrounding areas and the whole thing was so much fun! The weather was unfortunate for us meaning we had to bring raincoats and jumpers, but when the sun set it was magical. The dinner was also plentiful and yummy! Worth every penny. Please do this!!

Best places to stay, visit, and eat in Santorini, Greece

Santorini is one of Europe’s most popular tourist destinations. This is what you should see, do, stay and eat to make the most of your time there, writes Amira Hashish

Santorini’s whitewashed, blue-domed villages have elevated it to iconic status amongst Greece’s Cyclades. Its beauty was born out of a dramatic past.

The caldera was created by a volcanic explosion three millennia ago and to this day a crescent of black and red cliffs plunge down to the submerged volcano, with two smouldering craters marooned in the sea.

Visitors flock to the postcard-perfect town of Oia for breathtaking sunsets or head to the capital of Fira for caldera selfies. Sure, these are must-see sights. However, those in the know will venture to the lesser-known corners of the island for a more authentic kind of magic.

Book a villa stay with Plum Guide

Santorini’s beauty means it draws in the crowds but insiders will go beyond the most famous neighbourhoods of Oia and Fira and discover the island’s more low-key gems. The authentic village of Megalochori is home to sweet villas, white-washed buildings and blue-domed churches as well as pretty taverna-filled squares. The area is also known for its fabulous wineries and the established Gavalas is right in the heart of the village with wine tastings sessions from around 20 euros per person.

Plum Guide has an array of beautiful homes to book. If you are seeking the signature Cycladic vibes, take a look at the Secret Hideaway. With slick white exteriors and domed ceilings, it oozes the Greek island flair. Behind its cobalt blue doors you will find a cobbled courtyard garden surrounded by tumbling bougainvillaea, olive trees, and an outdoor heated jacuzzi.

Inside houses cool vaulted interiors with statement archways and neutral, earthy tones. There are two bedrooms, with the second bedroom and bathroom tucked away in a private guest house accessed just across the courtyard.

If you are after a dose of history, the two-bedroom Floral Feast dates back to the 19th century and was once owned by one of the island’s feudal landlords whose wealth stemmed from the export of vinsanto wine , which is still produced in Santorini to this day.

Traces of the home’s past can be seen in its heavy wooden doors, polished wood floors, vaulted ceilings and the original stone arch in the kitchen. Meanwhile, Ode to Grace, just outside Megalochori, is a more contemporary offering with four bedrooms and its own private pool.

Some of the Plum Stay villas come with a handy concierge service which will assist with everything from transfer to boat trips at the drop of a text message. Rock up for breakfast at Raki, explore the village and venture beyond to some of the island’s many attractions. Car hire is recommended for exploring Santorini further as taxis are on the pricey side.

Nobu Hotel and Restaurant, Santorini

On a rugged clifftop along the Oia-Fira trail, Greece’s first Nobu Hotel and Restaurant has a dual-level infinity pool, fitness studio and 25 rooms, suites and pool villas. It is the perfect size for nailing the understated luxury that Nobu does so well.

Suites are housed in whitewashed Cycladic style with minimalistic decor to focus on the dramatic vistas. Many of them have sweeping views of the Aegean and some of the best sunset views on the island.

Celebrating its roots, the restaurant serves iconic dishes in the most stunning sea-facing al fresco space. The resident DJ gets the tone just right, upping the tempo as the sun sets and guests are ready to dine in style. The black cod miso, yellowtail sashimi and king prawn tempura are just some of the mouth-watering sharing plates on the menu.

There is an excellent cocktail and wine list to accompany the cuisine. Leave space for dessert as the Nobu cappuccino is a must. Breakfast is served on the terrace with chia pudding, matsuhisa benedict or even the Nobu-style “full English” amongst highlights.

The Vasilicos

Formerly the private sanctuary of art collector Vasilis Valambous, this seven-bedroom retreat in Imerovigli still has the glow of a special hideaway. Vasilis’ daughter Daphne spent her childhood summers in the house but now shares this property with guests.

Every little detail is taken into consideration, from the pillow menu that is offered in advance to the upcycled blue calico keyrings that unlock the thoughtfully curated rooms. The moment you step inside this tranquil oasis, there is a sense of stumbling across one of the island’s most unique boutique hotels.

Each of the rooms has its own vibe. The uppermost Pergola has a shady terrace for soaking up the views or there are three suites surrounding a shared pool which work well for groups and families.

A personal favourite is the lowermost Efta suite; a completely private cocoon, sitting prettily on the cliffside with uninterrupted sea views. Watching the sunset from your private terrace, which has its own little plunge pool and outdoor lounging cove, is truly extraordinary. The very view that travellers flock to the island to get a glimpse of is presented before you in a wonderfully intimate setting.

A delicious breakfast is also served on your terrace at the time of your choice. It’s just the spot for lunch too, where local ingredients and recipes shine. If you don’t want to leave (the chances are high), a caldera candelight dinner can be arranged in your suite. Daphne’s brother, Yiannis, runs the acclaimed Vassaltis Vineyards, so needless to say the wine list is on point.

Book way in advance as those already in on the secret are snapping up rooms throughout the season.


It does not get more romantic than this cobbled restaurant, perched on a cliff edge with endless views of the sea. In the famous town of Oia, this is the kind of spot that you will remember forever and the food is a match for the setting … or at least a close contender. Chef Christos Karagiannis’ cooking approach is defined by innovative flavour pairings enhanced by seasonal food and creative presentation. Go for sunset and spend the evening starstruck by your surroundings.

Ammoudi Fish Tavern

Framed between volcanic red rocks and the Aegean sea, Ammoudi Bay is a tiny fishing port located about 300 steps below Oia. At the bottom of a steep and winding set of steps, you will find a couple of dining spots with the most popular being this casual seafood tavern that is always buzzing.

This restaurant is sweetly named after the age-old ritual of a Santorinian evening summer walk under the moonlight. On the rooftop terrace of an old mansion, in the heart of Megalochori, Feggera works just as well for a convivial dinner with friends as it does a date night. Aegean cuisine is made with organic Cretan ingredients to give traditional Santorinian recipes a fresh and flavourful flair.

This restaurant has been making waves on the island since it was founded in 1985 by the much respected Giorgos Hatzigiannakis. After several guises, it has found itself in a former Catholic monastery in Fira. The cloistered atrium is a magical setting for menus created by Michelin-star chef Ettore Botrini. Wine tastings and pairings, curated by Master of Wine Yiannis Karakasis, are the perfect accompaniment.

This restaurant in Fira, only a short walk from the acclaimed caldera, has a laid-back yard with a seasonally focused Greek-inspired menu. Olive oil is the hero here, with a dedicated oil sommelier to guide you through the proceedings. The sourdough bread is proofed for 12 hours, and the fish and meat are slow-cooked in the wood oven. The cocktail list is on point too.


A half-day or full-day catamaran caldera cruise sailing along the island is the ideal way to explore the wonders of Santorini. A five-hour semi-private option, priced at 160 euros per person with Yako Sailing (, takes in the white and red beaches as well as the hot springs which can be found in the volcanic island in the middle of Santorini caldera. Take a dip next to the volcano, go for a snorkel or to bathe in the warm sulphate waters.

A Greek meal, cooked on board, is served with wines or soft drinks. If you are in the mood for some culture, a trip to the ancient ruins at Akrotiri will satisfy that craving. Or if shopping is more your scene, stroll along the bustling Oia for a mix of locally made pieces and trinkets to take home.



Fly from Auckland to Santorini with two stopovers with Air New Zealand, Etihad, Qantas, Singapore Airlines and Emirates (on a Star Alliance Codeshare basis).

This New Resort on Santorini Has 37 Luxury Suites — Private Plunge Pools and Stunning Sunset Views Included

Despite the sometimes-congested streets and prodding selfie sticks, it is possible to escape the crowds on your next visit to Santorini.

best caldera cruise santorini

Food and Drink

Activities and experiences, sustainability, how to get the most value out of your stay.


To any seasoned traveler, Santorini in the summer might conjure up a familiar phenomenon: Instagram versus reality.

Social media is flooded with content of the mesmerizing sunsets amid picture-perfect blue domes atop whitewashed buildings, but what’s not shown are the congested streets and prodding selfie sticks in all of the outtakes — but it is still possible to experience the island's magic without the crowds.

That’s where the Santo Collection Resorts and Villas come in. The trio of properties between the village of Oia and Ammoudi Bay feels like a world of its own and quietly serves up some of the best sunset views on Santorini. My favorite spot to take in the nighttime show was from my suite’s private jacuzzi at Santo Mine, a new boutique property opened by the hotel group in April 2024.

Courtesy of Santo Mine

At Santo Mine, 37 suites are spread across the property, ensuring guests always have a sense of privacy, even at maximum capacity during peak season. Though you'll feel inclined to spend as much time as possible soaking in your suite’s private plunge pool (I certainly did), it's worth checking out the resort's common spaces: fine-dining restaurants, an outdoor gym, infinity pool, and stylish wine cellar, to name a few.

Located only a 10-minute walk from Oia's most popular restaurants and landmarks, Santo Mine lets guests easily switch between total seclusion on the resort's property and exploring the rest of the village with the masses—a luxury that’s hard to come by on a Greek island summer vacation. Another addition to its portfolio this year is The Villas by Santo Collection. Two secluded four-bedroom villas can host up to 16 guests, offering butler service, in-house fitness and spa sessions, and a wine fridge filled with bottles local to Santorini. Guests can also hire a mixologist for private cocktail experiences or a chef for sunset BBQs.

I spent a few days at the newly-opened Santo Mine in early June. Read my full review below.

  • Each suite has a personal plunge pool overlooking Ammoudi Bay in the Aegean Sea.
  • The design approach boasts Cycladic minimalism with sleek and modern undertones. 
  • Guests can reach the village of Oia in just 10 minutes via a private walking path. 
  • Private tasting experiences are hosted in the on-property wine cellar.

Carefully carved into the cliffs of Oia on the site of an old stone mine, suite interiors ooze a perfect blend of Cycladic minimalism and modern brutalist design. The accommodations opened this spring and are outfitted in exposed raw materials like stone, clay, and marble, contrasted by light wood and warm cream tones that brighten up the space. One of the more striking elements is the slab of black lava rock covering the bathroom wall — a subtle nod to the island’s iconic caldera facing the resort.

The apparent highlight is the sea-facing private patio with a table and cushioned seating, two chaise lounge chairs, and your pool or jacuzzi. The premium suites, which measure around 540-680 square feet, come with both.

Oenophiles should pay a visit to the wine cellar for a private tasting experience with cheese, fruit, and, of course, κρασί (Greek for wine). Rhoē, a pool bar by day turned sunset happy hour spot by night, has a creative cocktail menu with three adjectives below each drink to describe its taste. If potent, smoky, and spicy is up your alley, get the "Smokin’ Hot," made with mezcal, pink grapefruit, agave, and chili. Into more of a floral, dry, and elegant vibe? Vodka, cherry soda, pomegranate, and rose bitters create the “Ruby Rose.” A daily lunch menu is also available for poolgoers, and a small selection of bar bites to accompany a pre-dinner refreshment.

At the breakfast buffet each morning, a large spread of Greek classics will start your day off right, including spinach pie, heaps of feta, greek yogurt, and so on. Come nighttime, the outdoor seating area for breakfast transforms into the property’s intimate fine-dining fish restaurant, Ālme. The team of chefs specializes in dry-aging the very best local catches and offers seven- and 11-course seafood-focused tasting menus.

Wellness-seeking travelers can center themselves at sunrise yoga or get their heart rate up at the outdoor gym perched on a cliff overlooking the Aegean Sea. Those looking to indulge and relax can schedule a private tasting experience in the wine cellar, which samples Greek blends native to Santorini and beyond. In addition to the personal plunge pools attached to each suite, guests can hang out by the seaside infinity pool with a cocktail in hand.

Pnoē Spa sits at the bottom of an unassuming staircase off the pool area. It has three treatment rooms and a menu of 11 unisex body and facial treatments. Some therapies, like the Urban Longevity Facial, are targeted at city dwellers who want to detoxify from the negative stress a fast-paced lifestyle can put on the body and mind. Guests can also reserve private time in the on-site sauna and hammam.

Sustainable hospitality is central to the Santo Collection’s identity. The hotel group employs several practices to combat its environmental impact, from water and waste management to energy conservation and regenerative agriculture.

Santo Mine recently introduced a system called “sustainable hotel farming,” which uses the European Green Deal — a collection of policy initiatives to put the EU on track to reach climate neutrality by 2050 — as a framework for its approach to food production. A natural composting process converts organic kitchen and garden waste into high-quality, rich soil that cultivates environmentally friendly ingredients to enhance the resort’s culinary offerings, including herbs, fruits, vegetables, and nuts.

Being just a short stroll from the main village, the resort’s location gives guests the best of both worlds: solitude and seclusion without feeling cut off from all the action. Santo Mine also boasts private sunset viewing spots that rival some of the most popular lookout points on the island.

Throughout the 2024 season, Santo Mine’s website offers a few promotions. Guests can take advantage of the “Stay Longer & Explore” package, which provides a 25 percent discount on accommodations in addition to a host of exciting perks like daily sunset cocktails, a floating breakfast for two, and half-off a private tasting experience in the on-property wine cellar.

The resort also has a membership rewards program. Signing up via email or Facebook unlocks unique benefits and an instant 10 percent discount on your next stay.
