You can take all day long just walking around these picturesque corners soaking up culture and history - so many photo opportunities await you!
Skaros Rock, Imerovigli, Santorini

Monastery of Profitis Ilias, Pyrgos, Santorini
The ancient monastic complex of Prophet Elias on Mountthodoxy is a sight to behold. It has been magnificently preserved over time. You can clearly see how it played an important role during Greece's Christian Orthodox Revolution by offering refuge for ships fleeing from their Turkish invaders and helping with food supplies when needed! A small part about this intriguing history remains intact, but your reward will be greater than anything else if only take the opportunity to climb up there yourself!
Red Beach, Akrotiri, Santorini
This small, red beach is arguably one of the most famous and beautiful beaches on Santorini. It's located just some steps away from Akrotiri ancient site with its red volcanic rocks jutting up into the sky like sentinels. They look like they are defending this land against enemies long ago. They are positioned so strategically that no other coastlines could touch them without being destroyed first. There would be nothing left for invaders to take home after their attack (except perhaps some fiery remains).
Perissa Black Sand Beach, Perissa, Santorini
The black beach is a breathtaking sight to see. The texture of the sand is super unique, you also get to experience enormous rock called Mesa Vouno that rises out of the sea! Visitors will be left speechless when they witness this natural phenomenon firsthand because it does shine bright in different lights - especially during nighttime hours where you can enjoy watching its beauty from afar while sipping on some cocktails.
Whether you're looking for an intimate dinner or want to catch up with friends over drinks, Perissa has something that will suit your needs. The variety in terms of cuisine and price points makes it easy!
The stunning views are only one reason this small village is so popular among tourists; there will also be plenty of time to enjoy lunch and explore its many amenities before returning home after another full day exploring Greece.
