SANTORINI Is your next destination with Celestyal Cruises!

Discover the Magic of Santorini with Celestyal Cruises!

Santorini is one of the most beautiful destinations in the Mediterranean, captivating travelers with its breathtaking spots and rich history. It’s known for its iconic white-painted houses on volcanic cliffs, this Cycladic island is a true must-visit destination!

Arriving by sea is the ultimate way to immerse yourself in Santorini's beauty. Picture yourself stepping off the boat and immediately being captivated by the stunning views. Upon disembarking at the old port, a visit to bustling Fira is essential. Wander its charming streets, marvel at the breathtaking views, and savor every moment on this dreamlike island.

If you have the chance head to Archaeological Museum, you will see artifacts from the island's past. Another thing you can do is that near this museum you can find Akrotiri, an active excavation site where they reveal the ancient Minoan city buried by a volcanic eruption. You will explore its ruins and uncover mysteries beyond your imagination! Time to grab your hat and whip, Dr. Jones.


While Santorini may not be known just for its beaches, it has some unique spots worth visiting. Kokkini, or Red Beach, can give you some stunning views against its reddish volcanic rocks. Kamari and Perissa beaches offer the experience of walking on black volcanic sand, perfect for a day by the sea. If you want to experience a lunar-like landscape, head to Vlyhada Beach in the south.

Trying Food?

YES, try Greek food, and savor the unique flavors of Santorini, including their famous cherry tomatoes, broad beans, capers, and renowned Assyrtiko wine. 

If you want something fancy, you can always eat in local restaurants like Argo in Fira or Throubi with its stunning views. For a memorable dining experience, head to Mylos in Firostefani or Buddha-Bar Beach in Imerovigli, not only the food will shock but also the experience, be almost like a movie experience.

Volcanic Exploration?

Santorini offers its own version of adventure! Joining a boat excursion allows you to explore the island's volcanic remains up close. You'll visit Palea and Nea Kameni islets, where you can take a dip in hot springs and witness the active volcanic crater of Nea Kameni.

Santorini sounds even more artistic than we thought and this a destination where natural beauty is just a part of the adventure.
