Caldera view is arguably the best view one can relish when in Santorini, since caldera is the hallmark of the island and its most beautiful feature. Visitors can admire such view from the gifted settlements of Oia, Imerovigli, Fira, Firostefani, Megalochori and Akrotiri where terraced houses and domed churches perch on the 300-meter high cliffs of the breathtaking caldera.

Besides the wondrous caldera, Santorini is also famous for its sublime sunset. Everybody who visits this beautiful island seeks the perfect spot to gaze it. The great news is that the aforementioned caldera settlements are the ones that offer the ideal sunset view as well. It’s worth mentioning that Oia village is the best place to be when the sun “sinks” in the sea. These settlements, which are situated on the west side of the island, are characterized by this perfect combination and hence they are among the most popular ones in Santorini. What’s more, they all share one extra asset ‒ they overlook the well-known volcano in the middle of the sea.

Finally, a unique point of view can be admired from the village of Pyrgos which is built on the highest area of the island, on the hillside of Prophet Elias Mountain. Thanks to its privileged position it provides the most amazing panoramic views of Santorini in almost every direction. People who choose to stay at this special settlement will lay eyes on valleys, vineyards, shores and the vast Aegean Sea.
