Holidays To Santorini For Off The Beat Track Adventures
If you are looking for things to do on your holiday to Santorini that are off the beaten track, you can visit the black sand beaches.

The beaches are not highly populated during the day or at night, which makes them so easy to tour. Walk around the area and see the beautiful vegetation, the usual formations and the incredible wildlife that visit the beaches from time to time. You can spend days walking around the beaches and always see something new and different.

You can plan a day to the volcano where you will see the beauty of the area. The domes are spectacular to see. The Smith, Reck and Fouque domes are something that everyone should see, but most people never even know they exist. If you climb to the top of the domes, you are going to be in for an incredible view of the crater and see the old lava streams that were once a threat to the town below.

Santorini, GreeceOne thing that is even more usual to so in Santorini is to go looking for the smiling donkey. The donkey is usually found on the path down from Fira. If you pull out a camera or a piece of apple, this donkey is going to smile at you. Yes, the smiling donkey is famous in Santorini. After you take a picture of him, just give the owner a little token of appreciation such as a euro. The smiling donkey is so cute that you will want to get a picture of him when he is showing his teeth and smiling for the camera.

There are many wineries in Santorini where you can enjoy a visit and sample some of the fine tasting wines. The vineyards and orchards are just amazing to see. They are so large that one can only imagine how much wine is produced from these fields. When you take a tour of the winery, you will see how they process the fruits and how the fine wine is made. Samples usually follow after the tour has been completed. This is a good tour for the entire family, but the wine tasting is only for adults.

Take a sunset cruise for your holiday to Santorini. The sunset is spectacular. You can see many sunsets and still never see one as beautiful as the sunsets in Santorini.

With everything to do that is off the beaten track in Santorini, you will have more than enough to do when you visit.
