Photo Spot Details

The southern Akrotiri of Santorin is one of the most beautiful locations of the island and its not as popular as Oia. The good news is that there are very few people during the sunset getting in the way of your shot. A perfect time to visit the island is during the spring because of the clearer atmospheric conditions, the occasionally cloud coverage adding some color the composition (during the summer there are almost no clouds). A sturdy tripod is essential because of the strong winds.

Santorini is a very photographed island but most of the photographs are basically from the same spots so if one wants to explore a lie can find unique and very interesting spots.
