They will also allow you to swim in the area near the volcano, where sulfur is produced, the water is yellowish, the temperature reaches 30 degrees Celsius and is essentially a natural spa! It is worth doing!

Of course, Santorini is known for its sunset. In Oia, one of the most photographed places in Greece, you will admire the magical sunset with thousands of tourists.
