Elvin Siew Chun Wai: Five Places to Visit in Santorini Greece

If you are planning to explore a new place this time and have not decided your destination, I, Elvin Siew Chun Wai, will suggest Santorini Greece. It is one of the most beautiful places in the world. In this blog, I will tell you about five places to see in Santorini.

Let us get started.


Pygros is one of the most popular and visited villages in Santorini. It is located in the centre off the island. The remnant of an old fortress makes the views of village amazing. The fortress was destroyed by an earthquake. The atmosphere around the village is couple-friendly. Visiting Pygros with your partner or family will be a great experience for you.


Fira is the capital of Santorini and is beautifully made of cubic houses and blue-domed churches above the cliffs of Caldera. You can reach Caldera by walking or hiring mules for a ride up. If you decide to go Caldera by walking, you have to climb only 600 steps or you can opt for the cable car.

Red Beach

Red beach is right below the red cliff wall. The beach is along the pathway from the Akrotiri town. You can take the local bus to reach out to the red beach. You can reach the beach via a boat from Akrotiri, Kamari, and Perissa ports. The beach is amazing. It will be a great experience to spend time on the beach. If you reach the beach during the summer days, you will find the beach fully crowded.

Amoudi Bay

Amoudi Bay is one of the most popular tourist places in Santorini. You must visit this place. The bay has beautiful isolated caves and quaint Greek Tavernas. It is a perfect place for swimming. If you love adventure, I, Elvin Siew Chun Wai, will want to tell you Amoudi bay is the best place for cliff diving. Visiting the bay will be a lifetime experience for you that you will never forget.


Oia allows you to have a great experience of the sunset view. A large number of tourists reach Oia to see the sunset only. Oia is located on the north-end of Santorini. You will see beautifully white washed houses in the city.

Visiting these places in Santorini will be an amazing experience for you. If you have more time, then you can visit several other places like Nea Kameni and Akrotiri Archaeological site.
