Santorini is one of the biggest hot spots for tourism in the world. I was lucky enough to visit while I was on a solo Europe trip and enjoyed every moment of it. When I was researching things to do in Santorini, a lot of the posts were all about Oia and the blue domes. I learned that while those places are a special part of Santorini, there is so much more on the island that is just as striking, if not more.
Santorini is one of the most beautiful places in the world, no exaggeration. The ocean views, the white buildings, the beaches… everything about this place is dreamy. The island is also super small so it is possible to drive up the entire spine of it in 45 minutes, and you’ll see everything on the way there. I stayed in Perissa, which is in the southeast end of the island. To go to the beautiful black sand beach from my hostel was only a 5 minute walk, and I could see the ocean from my window!
