Overview

Meet with your escort or guide at the Old Port of Fira (the locals call it Scala) and start this amazing tour!

The Tour start from the prehistoric settlement of Akrotiri, one of the most important archaeological sites of the Island. The city, which flourished from 4.000 to 1.600 B.C., when it was covered by the lava after the eruption of the volcano, is an excellent stop for you to discover the prehistoric past of the island.

Next stop, the imposing Red Beach which is the most representative, volcanic beach of the island with the red rock creating a unique landscape.

The Red beach is one of the most scenic and interesting beaches on the island, located near Akrotiri village. The reason for its popularity is its colour!

If you stand on the top you will set eyes on enormous volcanic rocks situated in the sea, small pebbles and sand of various colors, mainly red, all along the beach and appealing dark blue waters. This wonderful palette of contrasting colors will mesmerize you.

We continue heading to the Lighthouse of Santorini, wherefrom you will enjoy the view on the island of Santorini and the caldera. The lighthouse is located on the extreme southwest part of the island, 18 kilometers away from the capital of Santorini. It is considered one of the best and most beautiful lighthouses in Cyclades.

Last stop, the beach of Perissa with the black sand and the crystal-clear waters where you will have a free time to swim or relax on the beach.

After our last stop, you will be ready to return to your ship full of memories!
