Greece Day 4: Red Santorini

Blue, white… and red??!

While the classic image of white-washed houses and blue-domed churches are undeniably breathtaking, it is not an uncommon sight in many other Greek islands.

What makes Santorini stand out from its cousins in the Cyclades archipelago, I’d argue, is a unique, additional touch of red.

The red caldera which provides a stunning, dramatic backdrop to Santorini.

The one-of-a-kind feeling when you lie down on the red beaches of Akrotiri, looking at the cliffs surrounding you while the ocean seeps through under you.

And the red hue which shines down on honeymooners as they kiss at the world’s most romantic sunset spot.

Don’t you agree that more red should grace the postcards of Santorini?

At least that’s what my first impression of Santorini was… and the trip had just started. I’ll post more stories from Santorini in the next couple of weeks.

What are your favorite spots in Santorini?
