Fira, the busy capital of Santorini, sits on the very edge of a volcanic caldera.
Go for a jaunt from Fira to Perissa to see Perissa Black Sand Beach about 34 minutes away. There's lots more to do: explore the ancient world of Akrotiri, contemplate the waterfront views at Amoudi Bay, get a dose of the wild on a nature and wildlife tour, and trek along Hiking Trail Fira - Oia.

For reviews, ratings, traveler tips, and tourist information, you can read our Fira vacation planning site .

Kuwait City, Kuwait to Fira is an approximately 9.5-hour combination of flight and bus. You'll gain 1 hour traveling from Kuwait City to Fira due to the time zone difference. When traveling from Kuwait City in June, plan for colder days and little chillier nights in Fira: temperatures range from 32°C by day to 24°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 5th (Tue) so you can ride a ferry to Heraklion.
