An immense volcanic eruption over three and half thousand years ago, around 1645 BC, formed what are now Santorini’s beautiful trademarks: striking cliffs and dramatic coasts. Some say that this was the eruption that led to the demise of the lost city of Atlantis. True or not, Santorini is bathed in history, and Vedema Resort has the distinct advantage of being right in the middle of it all. From Vedema, venture out to explore the black beaches of Perivolos, the ancient Minoan city of Akrotiri or the majestic hot springs of Thirasia.

Discover "The Less Photographed Side of Santorini". The concept of this project was to bring into surface and reveal a different face of Santorini, its hidden aspects and less known parts. The idea was to turn our eyes away from the famous caldera of the island, one of the most breathtaking and photographed parts of the world, and investigate the peculiarities, the secrets and the mysteries of the landscape that spreads towards the eastern part of the island.

Hiking in Santorini is a lifetime experience! While the views from Thira town or Oia are enough to satisfy most travelers, even more spectacular panoramas await those who trek to small villages at higher elevations such as Imerovigli, Skaros and Pyrgos. From cliff-top walks to volcanic vistas, the island of Santorini boasts some of the Mediterranean’s best hikes.
Start the day riding to the top once again, an early start if you don’t want to find crowds along the beach at Monolithos. If the full two-and-a-half hour ride seems a little too much for you, ask to do the short ride of just an hour to the nearby beach at Exo Gonia. After your morning dash, visit Panagia Episkopi, the most important Byzantine monument on the island. A swim at Kamari and as soon as the sun begins to go down, a walk round Messa Gonia.
Black or white volcanic pebbles, vertical cliffs, gold sand, spectacular lunar-like rocks and crystal clear, deep blue waters where you can swim or relax. Santorini’s beaches have their own charm with unique geolocical formations. From the exclusive Red Beach to the family beach of Monolithos and from the cosmopolitan Perivolos to Kamari and Perissa, Santorini offers a great number of exceptional coastal treasures for you to discover.
