Hotels with caldera views on the island of Santorini have always been expensive. If your budget is sufficient, your stay here makes sense. However, if you are going to spend your summer vacation on the island of Santorini with a limited budget, you should also consider the best Santorini beach hotels.
Santorini beaches are mostly composed of volcanic sand and small pebbles. These are not white sand beaches but the water is the purest and most refreshing I’ve ever swum in. The beaches are on one side of the island (the east) and the caldera on the opposite side (the west). Almost all of the very best hotels in Santorini are located along the cliff of the caldera but the hotels I list below are the best of the beach resorts and good quality 3 to 5-star hotels.
Before jumping into the amazing Beach Hotels of Santorini I should also say that the beach side towns are also offering some of the Best Bars of Santorini, so if you are staying close to the beach do yourself a favour and visit them for an amazing fruit salad or a summer cocktail: Tranquilo, JOJO, WetStories, Chilli, Seaside By Notos, Theros Wave Bar, Night Flight.
