If you are visiting Santorini, you probably already know the story of its creation. Born out of a volcanic eruption thousands of years ago, Santorini is often associated with the myth of the Lost Atlantis. The island used to be round, and was named “Stroggili” or “The round island” but with the eruption, the middle part sunk to the bottom and created this crescent shape that is now recognizable worldwide.
For the best views and a once in a lifetime experience that cannot be replicated anywhere else in the world, you might want to book a room with a view of the caldera. Santorini has some incredible honeymoon destination hotels that are known for luxury, privacy, adult-only spaces, and the best views the island can offer. If this will be a kid-friendly honeymoon, there are plenty of hotels for you as well though!
The most famous villages around Santorini are located on the side of the caldera. Places like Oia, Firostefani, Fira, and Imerovigli will be where you find world-class hotels and villas for your romantic moments.
It will come as no surprise that the view costs more than your “average” room on the island but considering how limited space is and the fact that Santorini is the only inhabited volcano caldera in the world, then it is more than worth it in our opinion.
