As I mentioned in my last post, Dale and I spent our third morning in Oia. We then headed back to the San Antonio to enjoy breakfast and a massage. Afterwards we relaxed at the pool before heading out on a sunset cruise around the caldera! We had a great time meeting other honeymooners and even swam in the hot springs of the former volcano. I loved our view of the red beach from our boat. We were worn out after the cruise and slept in the next morning. After a late breakfast we rented a car and drove around the island. We stopped in the village of Pyrgos, the former capital.
After exploring Pyrgos we drove to the highest point on the island to enjoy the view. We drove down the mountain, and then back up again to see Ancient Thera. It was a pretty crazy road up, and once we reached the top realized it had already closed, but it was still a great adventure! For dinner we drove to Kamari which was a fun beach town. After enjoying a beer under the umbrellas we found a restaurant and enjoyed some spaghetti and a gyro. Wanting to make the most of our rental car, we made one last stop in Imerovigli to hike out to Skaros Rock. This was by far my favorite spot to watch the sunset.
Our last full day on the island was spent driving some more around the island in the morning, and relaxing at the pool in the afternoon. We ordered room service that evening to celebrate the end of our trip. We truly had the best time in Greece, we will never forget our time spent in Athens or on the beautiful island of Santorini!
