On the Rocks

Santorini, Greece
TEL: 30-22-8602-3889

Located just a 10-minute walk from Santorini’s bustling island town of Fira, the 21-room On the Rocks hotel, a bright and breezy cliff-side Aegean retreat, is nirvana for travelers wanting a mix of the island’s village and beach experiences. Set 700 feet above the deep-blue caldera basin, the classic Greek-style property (a whitewashed façade, narrow stone pathways, and simple stone archways) is picture perfect; those willing to leave the sun-soaked balcony can stroll down to the coast for the jagged nooks and craggy coves that make Santorini a favorite escape. And as for the island’s picturesque pink sunsets? That’s where the hotel delivers in spades, thanks to floor-to-ceiling windows and private western-facing terraces.

Room to Book:

The seven Superior Doubles are small, just 270 square feet, but open onto private sea-facing terraces and outdoor dining areas.

Insider Tip:

On the Rocks leads half-day archaeological tours; stops include Thira, home to a handful of ruins of ancient Akrotiri, and the 13th-century Kastro (castle), in nearby Pyrgos.
