3. Amoudi Beach

4. Skaros Rock

There’s a small hike to the top but it’s well worth it, with fantastic photo opportunities all along the way. This used to be one of the original forts that protected Santorini in the old days.

5. The Windmills in Oia and Fira

Dotted in between the traditional houses, a photo with one of the windmills is a must. Catch it when the sun is setting and it is a wonderfully iconic shot.
