Santorini Island is an amazing place in the Cyclades Islands in Greece. Santorini Island is well known for its breathtaking landscapes, beautiful black- or red-sand beaches, and typical white painted villages located on high cliffs providing amazing scenery. You can easily reach Santorini Island by plane or by boat -– you can take a ferry from Athens (it takes up to nine hours to get there). While in Santorini, the best way to discover the island is by car, so consider renting one -– to have better rates, specially in high season, make your booking in advance.

If you enjoy relaxing on the beach during the day, and partying at night, Santorini Island is the place to be. This island is famous for its busy nightlife and the best places to hang out at night are in the touristic areas like Fira, Oia, Perisa, and Kamari. Fira is the most popular place on Santorini Island, where all the cafes, restaurants, bars, and discos are (along the caldera cliff). These places are amazing spots to enjoy a drink against the backdrop of the beautiful sunset. If you prefer more quiet places, the best place is Oia, which is great for couples, because of its romantic environment. During your stay on Santorini Island, you cannot miss seeing the volcanic caldera cliffs and the unforgettable sunsets from the volcano.

There are a lot of hostels on Santorini Island, but in high season, this island can become really crowded, so book your room in advance to avoid disappointments and have better rates. Most of Santorini's hostels are well rated, with amazing facilities for their guests.
