2. Watch a movie at Open air Cinema Kamari
Open Air Cinema Kamari is a cinema in Santorini in the open air. Since 1987, people can watch movies there.
It's such a lovely experience to watch a movie in the open air in Santorini on a summer evening.
Also, this experience isn't expensive at all, since the entrance fee is only €8,-!
The language of the movies is English, and there are Greek subtitles.
Furthermore, you can also have something to drink or to eat while watching a movie. And there's also ice cream!

Since Santorini is one of the Greek islands with the most beautiful sunsets, many people want to visit Santorini to see this magnificent sunset in real life.
If you're on the island, you definitely should see it at least once!
There are many great places to watch the sunset on the island. However, most people agree that the sunset is most beautiful when you're in Oia.
Therefore, a great activity in Santorini is to go to Oia in the evening and enjoy the magical sunset there! The sunset here is also a great place for photography in Santorini.
4. Rent a jet ski
During a hot summer day, there's nothing better than to have fun in the water!
At Extreme Watersports Santorini, you can rent a jet ski (which is like a motorcycle, but then on water).
Besides renting jet skis, you can do many other fun watersports, such as water skiing and kayaking! This is great if you want to be active.

Want to learn more about Santorini and find out some secret spots? Then I'd recommend doing a free walking tour!
You can do such a tour at Santo Line and the tour takes 2 hours. During this tour, you will discover so many amazing things in Santorini!
For example, you'll go to the Catholic Women Monastery.
Also, you'll walk by the famous blue dome that is on all advertisements!
The tour is completely free. However, if you liked it, then tipping is appreciated! In my opinion, this is truly one of the best things to do in Santorini! And it is a great free activity in Santorini as well.

7. Archaeological Museum of Thera
Besides being a great island to relax and enjoy the summer weather, the island has also a very interesting history. Therefore, if you're interested in history and culture, you can also visit a museum.
For example, one of the museums I love most is the Archaeological Museum of Thera!
Since the old museum was destroyed due to earthquakes, this museum was built in 1960.
There are many interesting objects in the museum. For example, you'll find sculptures and inscriptions!
