Lighthouse on the edge of a cliff in beautiful Santorini sounds like an ideal romantic setting for lovers.
But for solo travelers like me, this place can still be bewitching-- without making you needy for another hand to hold on to :-P
Located on the southwestern tip of the island, the Akrotiri Lighthouse is one of the oldest lighthouses in Greece.
Santorini will never be Santorini without its majestic sunsets in Oia. You've probably seen the famous postcard image of this island's blue domes sitting pretty on top of its cliffs or the poetic sun setting beside its iconic windmills.
The truth is that Santorini sunsets are stunning. It's so stunning that it's attracting too many tourists ;-( And if you're a fan of quiet and peaceful sunsets, it might be a little disappointing for you.
Getting a photo is very challenging. Imagine throngs of tourists and aliens suddenly photo bombing just as you're ready to unleash your perfect smile :)) (Hello Ateng! Emote ka pa d'yan! :-P )
White. Black. Brown. Gray--- You have probably seen these beaches in different parts of the world. But have you seen a RED beach in this lifetime? ;-)
The rarity of its crimson color and breathtaking cliffs make Kokkini Beach, also known as Red Beach, a famous spot in Santorini, Greece.
Located at the southern coast of Santorini, one must take a ten-minute walk (from the parking) along this narrow beach trail in order to reach the beach. It is also very near the archaeological site in Akrotiri. For those who do not want to walk to the beach, you may take photos from the view point near the parking.
