A Wedding, fun in the sun and a truly majestic sunset.

I always feel home from home in Greece, especially since living in Zante and Cyprus so I was delighted to be invited to my friends' wedding. I only spent 4 nights on the island of Santorini but it felt like a lot longer. On arriving into the small terminal I was instantly in love with the place. The wedding party was based in Kamari, which was a short drive from the airport. The apartments we had picked were in a fantastic location on the beach front. It was a very typical Greek accommodation, basic with Air-Con and the staff were very friendly. The most action of Kamiri happens on the beach front with lovely bars (nothing rowdy at all) and restaurants, which all look out over the beach to the sea. The beach itself is pebbles but with board walks its so easy to get about. A truly perfect base to see the island. The island itself is small and takes no real time to get around. I used the local bus to get to the main town of Fira, which is great for shopping, the wonderful views of the Caldera and seeing the donkey trek coming up from sea level. As this is the main town it is a hive of activity both day and night. This is also the only bus terminal on the island to get to all of the other resorts, on another occasion I travelled from Kamari, changed at Fira to travel on to Oia. Wow Oia, what a place! I have never seen such a beautiful sunset over such a pretty town. Oia is the place where all the Greek adverts are filmed, small streets, white wash homes and blue dome church roofs, all built into the cliffs. It’s truly beautiful and if you cannot tell already I fell in love with the place, all within the time it took to have dinner and watch the sunset. We had a wonderful dinner in a roof top bar, it was a perfect location. The main reason I went to Santorini was to see my friends marry, which I actually arranged for them. They selected the Santos Winery at Sunset, this has fantastic sea views that overlooked the Cauldra and on to Fira. We then had the reception at Plagos, which when the sun goes down you have a magical view of the lights of the island that twinkle in the distance. It is a perfect wedding venue. All in all and I am sure you can tell I loved Santorini and will definitely be going back!
