The volcano that “sleeps”

It may have been more than half a century since its last activity, but the volcano still “evaporates” sulfur and warms the surrounding waters, creating the conditions of a natural spa. You may already be wondering how the “danger” of the volcano can be combined with your romantic trip to Santorini.

What could be more idyllic than a private boat trip? Equipped with large mattresses for relaxation and sunbathing, bath, toilet, music and stairs for easy access to the sea, you will arm yourself for about five hours and the captain will provide you with masks and respirators, if you want to discover its beauties bottom. In case you like fishing or you want to try your luck at it for the first time, the boat is equipped with fishing tools. If you are not interested in all this again, at the back of the boat there is a large table with seats on each side, while a large awning provides shading and always offers wine and water.

Of course it is not the only alternative! You can see other excursions here on the island or around the volcano. You will surely notice, when you go to admire the sunset in Oia, the boats and speedboats that are just downstairs waiting for the sunset. So this is one of your alternatives! See them all here!


It is said that the peculiar, due to the eruptions of the volcano, Santorini soil gives a special taste to the traditional products of the island. These are the green cheese, the white eggplant, the capers and, of course, the fava beans and the Santorini tomato. Whatever restaurant you choose, accompany your meal with sweet Vinsanto wine or an Santorini Assyrtiko. Of course, if you are a beer lover, do not forget to try the beers produced on the island with the brand of the nicest donkey or the volcano.
