Here are 3 activities that i consider out of the box things to do on Santorini.
Remember to check out my Santorini Travel Guide & 4 day itinerary as well.
While everybody is doing a fancy catamaran cruise around the island, why not take a Fishing tour instead? During the 5-hour tour you can soak in the stunning coast line of Santorini, makes some swim stops, but also help fishing your own meal (that will be prepared after) and learn all about the fishing culture of Greece and Santorini. When taking this tour, you’re killing lots of birds with one stone 😊. More than you would with a traditional boat tour. It’ll definitely keep your kids entertained as well. The tour is also available at sunset.
The beautiful Santorini Open Air Cinema has an amphitheatrical setting and is surrounded by trees. You can always check the program on the website. In 2021, a ticket was just € 6,-. There is a bar as well that serves snacks and cocktails. Sometimes they even screen Mamma Mia. Watching Mamma Mia in an open air cinema in Santorini is GOALS isn’t it!?
While everybody is fighting for a tiny space watching the sunset in Oia, you can go Horseback riding at sunset Right on the edge of the caldera and inside the traditional village of Megalochori, which also has whitewashed streets and houses and blue domes. This means you’ll get the real 2-hour Santorini sunset experience, with locals that know exactly where to go and without the crowds.
