We arrived in Paleochora town on the shores of the Libyan Sea. want to go to the old castle, located above the seaside town’s houses. Well, of course, Paleochora is not a traditional village, but from above it looks cute with it’s little castle while the picturesque peninsula is rubbing off smoothly towards the Libyan sea, amidst delightful beaches. The castle is no more than 500 meters from the village.

Then afternoon was our journey to Red beach. On the way to Red beach , we saw a local corn stall and my husband started pretending he is a chef and asked to take pictures. Locals were very friendly. We came to location but we were not able to see any beach near us. So we asked a local and he told it is a hike. To get to Red beach is a small hike. Climbing a huge rock and climbing down gets us to beach. We started climbing the rock and mid way , we were fascinated to see. It was a very huge red rock infront of us with a small white patch in the middle and beach was almost invisible. We saw many small moving objects down and confirmed it as beach. As we headed down, we were amazed. This is a red sand beach. There were shacks for rent. We took two and rested. We were totally in very clear water swimming and playing around. Spent almost 2 hours there. Very beautiful beach. It does not seem like a beach until you go near because of huge red rock. After a very satisfying day, we headed to hotel.

Fira is the main town/capitol of Santorini. Part of the town is sitting on steep cliffs and it is one of the most picturesque spots in all of Greece. Fira has the most restaurants, shops, and hotels and is the center of Santorini’s nightlife. Firostefani is a suburb of Fira, lying between Fira and Imerovigli. It is on the crest of a hill and thus has one of the spots with the best view on the island and especially looking back down to Fira.

Santorini is famous for dramatic views, stunning sunsets from Oia town, the town of Thira and naturally its very own active volcano. We stayed in Fira, cliff perched town featuring all that Oia offers.

The island is south of the Peloponnese and north west of the island Crete. It is known for it's rugged coastline and secluded beaches. 2 days remaining in the trip and I selectively chose this as the last stop. The main reason I went there was to go beach hoping. A beach or two a day and taste traditional Greek cuisine. I have had to learn so many basics of different languages when I wanted to say thank you in Greek I went through 4 different ways before I came up with “Efxaristo". My Greek is terrible but this was easily the worst Greek I have had in any of my visits. :P
