Santorini Island is in Greece so after flying into Athens or Thessaloniki you will catch a flight on Olympic Airways, Aegean Airlines or Athens Airways to the island. Upon arrival there are many car rental agencies but don’t look for any familiar names. The highs from May to October are in the 70’s and 80’s with winter lows in the 50’s and 60’s, very pleasant.


Monolithos Beach is near the airport and is a quiet black sand beach with shallow waters for wading, playground for children and beach volleyball. Fish taverns, restaurants and nightclubs are nearby in Kamari for your pleasure.


The Memories Beach Hotel is a lovely place right across from the beach having a pool also. They have 24 hour reception, café and bar service. The two most popular beaches are in the towns of Perissa and Kamari with the same black sand beach but deeper waters. They are separated by a huge rock called Mesa Vuono. Tamarix del Mar is a suite hotel in Kamari with two pools one heated inside, one outside.


With a sauna, fitness room, spa services and a children’s area with pool. The rooms are beautiful and there are even family suites with kitchen, main bedroom and sleeping loft; kids upstairs, adults downstairs. This is a sun and fun area so make sure you have several swimsuits and lots of Coppertone®.
