Villages in Thira
Kamari
(6)
We all have the image of Santorini, the villages perched on the Caldera, Imerovigli,Firostefani, Fira or Oia on the west of the island, but the east of Santorini is fairly flat and there are towns like Perissa, Kamari Monolithos or the same with a more tourism geared towards relaxation, with much more extensive beaches. From Kamari you can say it's a town where tourists flock for its long beach, the largest of the island. We also can´t forget that only a few kilometers away are the most important ruins in Santorini, Ancient Thira, which have stunning views.

Akrotiri
This traditional village is located in the southern part of the beautiful island of Santorini. Not far from this village, you can visit the Red Beach, arguably the most famous on the island. Just outside the village, towards the Red Beach, is the most important archaeological site on the island (in April 2010 was closed).

Emporio

This is a typical whitewashed village located in the south of the island of Santorini, about 15 kilometers from Fira, the capital of the island. I visited it because it because I knew it had mills, similar to the windmills of Consuegra in Toledo. This village is situated on a hill outside the town. I was very surprised at the castle built during the Venetian occupation (only some vestiges of what became). Worth wander through the narrow streets of the old part of the city (thank goodness it's small, because if I had not gotten out of the maze). Nearby we have the beaches of Perissa, tourist village, but to my taste, less interesting.

Vothonas is a picturesque town that isn't as well-known as some others on Santorini. It has the characteristic white houses dug into the mountain slopes and narrow streets. It is famous for its number of churches, some of which are among the most beautiful on the island.
