If any island in Greece can be considered essential then that would be Santorini. With an active volcano and the most beautiful sunsets in the world, it is a popular destination for honeymooners, families, lovers and people looking for love. Most
people want to stay
in the towns of Fira,
Oia, Imerovigli and Firostefani which are on the rim of the volcano, overlooking the sea. Rooms and suites with caldera view can be expensive but don't have to
be. If you want to be close to the beach stay in Kamari, Perivolos or Perissa. Hotels are listed beginning with the ones I recommend and then from highest category
to lowest with
villas, apartments, houses and simple rooms last. You can get information on Santorini by going to my Santorini Guide. A great way to plan your trip is my Create-an-itinerary
page which allows you to put together a custom itinerary with the help of a travel agency with no obligation to book. You can also try Matt Barrett's Santorini Hotel Search if the choices here seem too overwhelming
and that will help you narrow them down to the hotel that is right for you.
You can find hotels in Santorini by location, price, whether or not it has a swimming pool, and see photos and reviews by using this link to Booking.com. Excellent prices and many hotels you can book and then cancel
with no cancellation fee. For those who want to book without using a travel agency this is the best way to do it.
