Sunset Sailing & Swimming in Santorini

Sail across Santorini’s caldera on a luxury catamaran while sipping wine, stopping at beaches and soaking in volcanic hot springs.

About Your Trip

Take in one-of-a-kind sights of Santorini*, from rugged volcanic landscapes to verdant vineyards producing some of the world’s best wines. Your adventure begins with sailing by luxury catamaran to a beach covered in red volcanic pebbles where you can swim, snorkel or sunbathe. Continue to a white-pebbled beach with stunning, picture-postcard volcanic rock cliffs. You’ll cruise by intriguing sites like Indian Rock, Akrotiri Lighthouse and the large volcanic island of Nea Kameni. Before your day is over, stop at hot springs for a relaxing soak or leisurely swim in sulphur waters straight from a volcano.

In your leisure time, why not explore Fira, about a 10-minute walk from your hotel? You can stroll its famed Gold Street full of jewelry shops, see the Orthodox Metropolitan Cathedral, or head to a cafe and savor a strong, flavorful Greek coffee. Wine is plentiful on Santorini, and one of the best places to imbibe is sitting at a cliffside restaurant in Oia as the sun descends in the horizon. More amazing views of Santorini island in all directions can be found from the summit of Profitis Ilias, the highest part of the island.

*As a volcanic island, much of Santorini features towering cliffs, uneven streets and a rugged landscape. This DreamTrip includes walking over rough terrain, as well as up and down stairs, and is not recommended for guests with mobility issues and certain other health conditions. Please consult your physician prior to booking. Additionally, please note that the hotel is not wheelchair accessible, and that the stairs at the hotel may be steep for some guests.

What we love:
• Could it be the location of Atlantis? Legend has it that the Santorini caldera was once this idyllic civilization that disappeared without a trace by sinking into the ocean.
• Perched on a clifftop edge, the 1892 Akrotiri Lighthouse stands out with its white stone walls and 10-foot-high (3-meter-high) tower.
• Santorini is consistently ranked as one of the most beautiful islands in the world, drawing a couple million visitors each year to see spectacular sunsets from clifftop vantage points.

Destination

Santorini is the astonishing, jewel-toned remnant of a volcanic eruption. The island is surrounded by steep cliffs that slope into the Aegean Sea. The architecture of Santorini is the true treasure — most homes have the signature crisp white Cycladic features which are heavily associated with the island.

Fira, Santorini’s charming capital, sits on the Western coast of the island, with views of the volcano from every point. Santorini is home to the prehistoric settlement of Akrotiri and the famed churches of Megalochori village, as well as modern wineries that help make up the island’s thriving tourism industry. The island is renowned for growing prized produce in volcanic, mineral-rich soil, making every meal a flavorful experience.
