Culture and Events
On 15th August is the biggest celebration held in Santorini for the feast day of Holy Virgin, in the church of Panagia Episkopi. Preparations start one day before with traditional food and local wine which is distributed to the people.
The Ifestia Festival (meaning the Greek Volcano festival) is organized annually in Santorini, every August. It involves a representation of the eruption of the island’s volcano with fireworks and a series of interesting events, concerts and dance performances.
Beaches in Santorini are the point where the Aegean blue meets the black, red and white sand that the islands’ volcanic heritage left behind. Santorini beaches can’t be found anywhere in the world. Starting with the most impressive one, the Red beach is a deep red bay with fine pebbles, where high red rocks seem to have plunged into the sea. On the other hand Vlychada is a more quiet beach where the white sculptured pumice rocks create a lunar landscape perfectly combined with the black sand and blue sea. Perivolos and Kamari are both award winning beaches that worth a visit.
