“There are naturally fantastic beaches such as the beach of Perissa, maybe the best beach in Santorini, the black pebble beach of Kamari white beach and red beach.”

What makes Santorini an attractive tourist destination?

Santorini has favorable weather for 8 months in a year, except the period from December to March. The temperatures are also inviting and mesmerizing.

At its best, Santorini showcases the power of God’s artistry, embedded in nature’s beauty, shining on the power of the sun, to show clean beaches, white sands and dimly lit resorts that entices you.

Why then is Santorini trending in Nigeria?

Thank you #santorini for an awesome bucket list experience
Time to say antio sas…
Till the next time…

Yalley, who is a travel enthusiast for whom Santorini has topped the list for a while says that Santorini is expensive, but people Greece might want Africans because:

Greece has been going through a recession so they definitely need the money. For the most part, Africans from Africa don’t really come here. Both on my inbound and outbound flight, I was the only African. My hotel too and most places we went to.

According to Trip Advisor, It would cost Nigerians as low as N306,710  for an economy class flight trip to Santorini.

The Santorini hype is real and trending. See some of the tweets and memes.
