The white houses of Oia

Oia sunset

This year in April we visited Santorini for the first time. I actually wanted to visit this beautiful island for a long long time already. Back then I was a fan of the Hong Kong singer Kelly Chen and I remember her making the album "Continue To Love Me (繼續愛我)" and her music video's were shot in Santorini. I wanted to visit it ever since, actually the album is exactly 20 years old now, so that's really a long time ago!

We stayed in a hotel in Kamari and the weather was so so. Some days were sunny, but we still had a day or two where it was a bit cold and rainy. Nonetheless, we really enjoyed our holiday. Since Santorini is a pretty small island, we actually saw every hotspot since we rented a car and drove around. Of course we went to the famous Oia with the white houses and watched the pretty sunset there. It was really crowded though! We were quite shocked by this, since it was still april and Oia was already full with tourists!

Furthermore we went to the red beach, which was very beautiful. We went to Fira and and walked down and we took the cable car back up. We saw the lighthouse, Kasteli and went to Pyrgos, Imerovigli, Megalochori and Amoudi bay. I really enjoyed Ammoudi bay, we did quite some hiking and I'd suggest you to bring some good shoes to Santorini, since some parts are more difficult to walk on. On the final day we went to Imerovigli, and the Skaros Rock was pretty interesting, but we didn't hiked all the way up to the top, since it was quite a climb.

Santorini is a very photogenic island and you will see lots of influensters and wedding couples taking photoshoots in Oia. But that doesn't take away the beauty of this island. Have you been to Santorini before? Leave a comment below.
