Then we’ll drive up to the highest peak of the island (The Monastery of Prophet Elias) where you will have the chance to view a breath-taking live map of the entire island. We’ll then explore the Venetian castle of Pyrgos Village, which is one of the most picturesque villages of Santorini, away from the cliffs, to experience how locals used to live some time ago.

Then we’ll visit the Red Beach which is located next to the Archaeological Excavation site of the prehistoric city of Akrotiri, to take photos of a rather scenic location.
From there on, we’ll drive towards the fishing port of Vlichada (where the sailboats dock) passing through some of the most natural and wild beauty preservation parts of the island and to the local beach where some impressive white sand walls jump out of the ocean.
Next stop will be at Perivolos beach, which is the black sand beach of the island, full of coffee shops, restaurants and beach bars, where we can optionally enjoy a drink, a light meal, or even a swim, prior to our return back to your location.
