To Santorini For Off The Beat Track Adventures by Jessica Nielson
Featured Hotels / Santorini
If you are looking for things
to do on your holiday to Santorini that are off the beaten track, you can
visit the black sand beaches. What most people do not realize about the
black sand beaches is that the areas around them are full of beautiful
scenery and unusual things to see.
|The beaches are not highly
populated during the day or at night, which makes them so easy to tour.
Walk around the area and see the beautiful vegetation, the usual formations
and the incredible wildlife that visit the beaches from time to time. You
can spend days walking around the beaches and always see something new
You can plan a day to the
volcano where you will see the beauty of the area. The domes are spectacular
to see. The Smith, Reck and Fouque domes are something that everyone should
see, but most people never even know they exist. If you climb to the top
of the domes, you are going to be in for an incredible view of the crater
and see the old lava streams that were once a threat to the town below.
This experience is one that you cannot experience anywhere else.
One thing that is even more
usual to so in Santorini is to go looking for the smiling donkey. The donkey
is usually found on the path down from Fira. If you pull out a camera or
a piece of apple, this donkey is going to smile at you. Yes, the smiling
donkey is famous in Santorini. After you take a picture of him, just give
the owner a little token of appreciation such as a euro. The smiling donkey
is so cute that you will want to get a picture of him when he is showing
his teeth and smiling for the camera.
|There are many wineries
in Santorini where you can enjoy a visit and sample some of the fine tasting
wines. The vineyards and orchards are just amazing to see. They are so
large that one can only imagine how much wine is produced from these fields.
When you take a tour of the
winery, you will see how they process the fruits and how the fine wine
is made. Samples usually follow after the tour has been completed. This
is a good tour for the entire family, but the wine tasting is only for
Take a sunset cruise for
your holiday to Santorini. The sunset is spectacular. You can see many
sunsets and still never see one as beautiful as the sunsets in Santorini.
You can take a cruise with a small group of people or a larger cruise with
more people. If you do not want to take a cruise, there are many places
to watch the sunset. The cafés and taverns have outdoor seating
so everyone can see this beautiful sight. With everything to do that is
off the beaten track in Santorini, you will have more than enough to do
when you visit.
