Best Shooting Places in Santorini

To have a vacation in Greece and not take a fantastic photo session in the background of the azure sea and the strings of snow-white houses? This is hardly possible. But with a mandatory note – behind the camera lens there should be a professional who knows perfectly the most successful shooting locations, as well as the features of working with light on the slope of the Santorini caldera. Therefore, the SantoriniDress Team has prepared for you a list of the best locations for a photo session on this beautiful Island:

1. Imerovigli

A picturesque village only 2 km away from Thira – the capital of Greek Santorini. Here you will see stunning views of the sunsets, the volcano, and the resort of Oia. The Imerovigli houses are extended along the caldera, forming something like an amphitheater. This, by the way, is very convenient for those who are looking for a good camera angle. More places for a sunset photoshoot can be found in the article The Best Santorini Locations for Sunset Photoshoot.

2. Viewpoint in Pyrgos

It is located on the highest point of Santorini, which offers panoramic views of the entire island right to Oia. Traditional architecture, the remains of mansions in the neoclassical style, narrow winding streets leading to the top of the hill, small white houses, galleries, wineries, churches, breathtaking sunsets. Pyrgos is truly magical.

3. Vlychada Beach

Also known as “Moon Beach”. It is surrounded by impressive cliffs of white and beige color, which completely cover it from the land. As a result of centuries-old weathering and leaching of the volcanic tuff and pumice, these rocks acquired a bizarre shape: somewhere it’s a lunar landscape, somewhere caves, pillars, and columns in places they look like real works of art.

4. Ammoudi Bay

Beautiful bay with crystal clear waters and volcanic cliff. Ammoudi is famous for its traditional Greek taverns serving fresh seafood. Also, tourists are attracted by the opportunity to watch very beautiful sunsets.

5. Faros

A lighthouse is near Akrotiri, on the west of the southern part of the island. Gorgeous views open from the lighthouse and its environs – the cape is washed from all sides by the Aegean Sea.

6. Kartedos

A small picturesque village is in the center of Santorini.

In addition to the beautiful caldera and luxurious villas, Santorini is rich in picturesque landscapes, unusual beaches, amazingly beautiful Greek churches, which will be a wonderful decoration for a photoshoot.
