Search the best hotels in Santoríni
As far as many of us are concerned, Santoríni is one of the most spectacular places on earth. The drama of her multicoloured volcanic cliffs is perfectly contrasted by the peaceful beauty of her white, cubist villas - all arranged around the smooth and near perfect arc of the flooded blue volcanic caldera. She's as interesting as she is beautiful, what with her wineries and archaeological treasures, her buzzing tavernas, fine restaurants and boutiques and calm beaches beckoning welcomingly. Now you just need to know the best places to stay on Santoríni to get the most out of her!
Imerovigli may only be 2km from Santoríni's busy capital Thira but feels a million miles away in terms of peace and quiet. Oia is located at the northern tip of the island and some believe that it's the place to come if the view is top of your wish list - from here you can see not only the Caldera but the pretty white villages scattered to the south, not to mention the all-important sunset!

Where to stay - which town?
- Thira, with its steep, colourful cliffs is dramatic yet relaxed. This is Santoríni’s main town with more than its fair share of beautiful white cave hotels and apartments with infinity pools. Behind the hotels are the narrow streets of the town with the shops, bars and restaurants. Tear yourself away from the view and you’ll find the Museum of Prehistoric Thira, several galleries and your kids will love the cable car down to the docks. Nearby is the atmospheric site of Ancient Thira.
- Just two kilometres from Thira, Imerovigli is quieter and seems to have more churches. Imerovigli has great access to the restaurants, bars, museums and the port of Thira without the hassle of being in the thick of it.
- At Santoríni’s northern arc, the lovely little village of Oia has the cream of the crop when it comes to perfect views - partly because you can see the stacked sugar cubes of Thira and Imerovigli. Most of Oia can only be reached on foot - it’s steep - they still employ donkeys to take away the garbage. 300 steps below the town are the beaches, plus there’s a Maritime Museum.
- Originally a Bronze Age settlement, Akrotiri is situated on the southern tip of the island. The settlement was destroyed by a volcanic eruption in 1627 BC, but the ash preserved many colourful frescoes and recent excavations have done a wonderful job at restoring a wide variety of ancient artefacts. A top spot for culture-vultures!
- Meanwhile, Vlychada and Kamari are known for their rugged coastal beauty and are ideal if you're looking for a tranquil break by the seaside.
What not to Miss
- If Santoríni's on your bucket list then to really experience her arrive by sea! She's a spectacle on approach.
- Santoríni is famous for sunsets - many believe they’re the world’s most spectacular, so opt for one hotels that have made our list of the 10 Best hotel views on Santoríni.
- Don't forget Akrotiri! Like Pompeii, this town of 5,000 was a thriving community until the eruption that made Santoríni so beautiful today;
- And don’t forget that some of the islands in the group are still ‘smoking’, you can take a tour to see the steaming vents, hot springs and lava flows dating from the 1950s.
- As well as building the Cycladic ‘sugar cube’ houses, people lived in cave houses cut into the cliffs and the rocks. Some are still in use, some abandoned and some have been turned into some of the best places to stay on Santoríni. It’s definitely worth trying to see a few and possibly a few of the churches built in the same way.
- Santoríni is also home to some of the world’s oldest vineyards. The volcanic soil and unique climate of the island mean the local wines have quite a distinct flavour.
- The lighthouse at Faros has a reputation for being a great spot for taking photos.
- Santoríni has beaches in three colours: black, red and white. You’ll find everything here from secluded coves without any sand or facilities but excellent swimming conditions, to busy beach bars and perfect spots for snorkellers.
- Don’t forget to walk: Santoríni is an incredibly beautiful destination so don’t risk coming away with only the classic photos, explore the island properly on foot and you’ll discover your own lookouts and highlights.
Please note that this island is an incredibly popular destination (especially during the peak summer months), and most of the best places to stay in Santorini get snapped up quickly. So do plan ahead and make your booking early.

Prefer a private Apartment or Villa?
- If you’d prefer to stay in an apartment or private villa we recommend you visit our online partner, Booking.com.
- Santoríni airport is linked to Heathrow, Gatwick and Manchester, with more flights available during the busier season. The airport is about seven kilometres from Thira. You can also arrive on Santoríni via cruise ships, which dock at Skála Firás, before taking the 580 steps up to Thira - unless you hire a donkey or take the cable car. Or, you can catch the ferry in to Athinios.
- If you want to hire a car we recommend you visit our online partner, Rentalcars.
- Santoríni really has just two seasons, summer, which is between March and October and temperatures range between about 11°C and 40°C, and winter, between November and February, when temperatures range between 10°C and 25°C. It’s certainly far from cold in winter, but the Greek islands tend to be more difficult to get to because of the reduced ferry timetable, and some parts of the island (including restaurants and bars) close down. But if you can work out the transport then you’ll be rewarded with a quieter, less expensive island.
