Holidays to Fira or Thira will take you to the beautiful capital of the pretty Greek island of Santorini. Lying in a dramatic location clinging to the hillside, Fira sits around the rim of an extinct volcano offering glorious panoramic views of the Aegean Sea and the nearby islands. Traditional white and pastel houses framed with electric blue doors and shutters delight holidaymakers on arrival and the warm Greek hospitality brings them back time after time.
Fira Beach Holidays
Below Fira beach lovers and sun worshippers have access to numerous volcanic beaches and rocky inlets washed by warm vivid blue seas. A small island everywhere can be easily reached and relaxing sunny days can be enjoyed soaking up the beach atmosphere in dazzling sunshine by the calm shores of the Aegean Sea. Water sports fans can enjoy plenty of activities to set the pulses racing. The east coast boasts many popular beaches including Monolithos, Kamiri, Perissa and Perivolos while the quieter resort of Vlychada sits on the south tip of the island. Holidaymakers will love the amazing red beach near Akrotiri.
Fira holidays offer plenty for visitors to enjoy with warm Greek hospitality, excellent opportunities for sightseeing, spectacular views in every direction and a vibrant nightlife scene. The attractive town sits on the edge of a long extinct volcano overlooking the caldera. Stroll around its winding cobbled streets to discover chic boutiques and elegant shops as well as trendy bars and traditional tavernas. Home to splendid examples of Santorinian architecture visitors can enjoy its blue domed churches and Venetian buildings.
