The Greek Islands are home to some of the most serene sunsets in the world. If you’re looking to see the best, chances are you’ll end up on the island of Santorini. Nestled in the Aegean Sea, Santorini is what I like to call a precious gem of the islands: in 16th century BC, a volcanic eruption shaped it’s breathtaking landscape.

Today, you can dine at some of the world’s best restaurants while watching sunsets atop 900 foot cliffs. The cliff-laid landscape makes for some amazing hiking, biking, and ATV riding. The island if full of places to rent ATVs, one of the easiest ways to see the island.

The island is also known for it’s incredible whitewashed, cube form houses, that add to the surreal feeling of exploring Santorini. Each house lays nestled along the cliffs, making for some amazing places to stay.

If you’re looking to visit Santorini and stay at the best resorts, below are three of the most recommended:
