Apart from that all prevailing romantic atmosphere, which is ideal for loving couples who just want to spend an utterly relaxing and sentimental holiday in this unique island, Santorini also has a fun side, which is not hidden at all! Santorini after dark is totally lively and can surely please everyone looking for the authentic Greek kefi (a Greek word for lively spirits!).
Santorini is no inferior to its neighboring Mykonos in terms of entertainment, as it features a wealth of bars with a view and clubs playing the latest billboard hits, all of them within walking distance creating the ideal setting for a night long bar hopping. Most of these entertainment venues are filled with cheerful holidaymakers who have great fun in the sound of their favorite music, drinking a refreshing cocktail and dancing the night out! However, there are many choices for chilled-out evenings too. If you are that type of visitor just head to a cozy bar or late café for a mouthwatering Vinsanto accompanied by live jazz music and superb sea view.
For those of you who like to stay up until the early morning hours, Santorini also boasts food outlets selling quick snacks, such as the typical Greek souvlaki or even American-style hot-dogs and crepes made the Greek way!
To get the most out of Santorini’s nightlife you’d first have to know what can you find and where. Fira, the main town of Santorini, is the place where the most nightclubs and bars are located, so it serves as the place where party people start their nights, only to end up back here when the sun starts rising. On the other hand, if you wish to feel the summer breeze caressing your hair while having a drink by the sea just head to the popular beaches of Perissa and Kamari boasting a plethora of food and drink choices.
What’s more Santorini’s nightlife is not all about drinking and stunning views to the sea. What you shouldn’t miss during your stay in the island is the divine local cuisine. Restaurants and traditional taverns abound the whole of Santorini, but for authentic dishes you should definitely visit the village of Megalochori in Santorini’s mainland. This once flourish traditional village was devastated by a strong earthquake, and after about 50 years it was restored and is now ready to host visitors in luxurious accommodation such as the Villas and Mansions of Santorini. The village is also home to two exceptional restaurants, Raki and Spiti, serving traditional Greek and local cuisine as well made of organic products and of course the local produce. In particular, Raki is often visited by well-known guests, such as Lady Gaga and Oprah Winfrey! So, off to Santorini this summer!
