You’ve seen Santorini all over social media and on the cover of major travel magazines for years now. But is Santorini a kid-friendly vacation destination, or merely the best place to snap perfect photos? With the right planning, it definitely works for families. Book a boat cruise that gets you away from the day trippers as well as allowing your family to see volcanic craters and swim to natural hot springs. Visit the beach in the morning before the black sands get too hot in the afternoon sun; cool off by the pool later in the day. Experience the local culture well into the evening by taking a Greek dancing lesson.
For accommodations, we prefer a kid-friendly resort tucked away in a quiet village, away from the hustle and bustle of the main tourist tracks through Santorini.
