Megalochori village is located 9 km southwest of Fira.

Imerovigli is situated 3 km north of Fira, built at the highest point of the Caldera, at an altitude of 500 m. The excellent view of the Caldera and the volcano fully justifies it being known as the “Balcony of Santorini”.
Oia is a traditional settlement in the north of Santorini. It is also known as ‘Apano Meria’ or ‘Anomeria’ and the inhabitants are called ‘Apanomerites’. The village is approximately 150 meters above sea level. At the edge of the Caldera cliffs, Oia has a panoramic view across the caldera towards the volcano, Thirassia, and almost the entire island.
Vlychada beach is on the south coast of Santorini, around 10 km from Fira the capital. Vlychada is a charming fishing village, where visitors can relax at seaside taverns and cafes. Vlychada combines a dark sanded beach with a marina for mooring private yachts.
On the island’s southeast coast, 3 km from Perissa, is Perivolos beach. A wonderful endless beach, ideal when north winds are blowing, Perissa is perfect for lovers of beach bars and music – the fun starts at midday and goes on until the sun goes down.
Monolithos beach is a long stretch of quiet beach with shallow waters making it good for families with children. It is organized in places with beach volley, basketball, football, and a playground.
Some 500 meters from the Archaeological Site of Akrotiri, on the southwest coast of Santorini, is Red Beach, otherwise known as “Kokkini Paralia”. The name is taken from the unique color of the surrounding rocks and cliffs, as well as the stunning black and red shingle. The contrast between the red and black of the beach with the bright blue of the sea creates a magical setting.
