A Santorini Swimsuit Guide

Annie Gabillet

White buildings. Blue water. Pink bougainvillea. Santorini, Greece is bursting with colors — and tourists. Each year, more than 1.5 million visitors stop by the Greek isle. Luckily, if you stay in a quiet hotel, like Canaves Oia Santorini, you will generally avoid the crowds. From your home base, you can enjoy a dip in the pool and a view of the famous sunset without ever leaving the property.

Of course, you’ll want to venture out to walk the charming streets or take a dip in the sea, perhaps jumping in from the side of a boat. This will require the perfect swimsuit. Whether you’re planning a trip to Greece, or just want to channel the picturesque island, here is your ultimate Summersalt swimwear guide inspired by the colors of Santorini.

You’ll fit right in wearing the Voyager Bikini Top in Blue Sky and White Sand paired with The Classic High Rise Bottoms. Toss over The Long All Buttoned Up Cover-Up to complete the airy look. Feeling more like a one-piece? The Voyager also comes in that style.

The Easy Breezy Sarong can be worn as a wrap skirt, a criss-cross halter dress, and even a bandeau dress with its unique cut. The versatility makes it a light packer’s dream and will take you from the beach to cocktail hour. It also looks great over The Sidestroke in Deep Sea.

Channel the iconic whitewashed walls of Santorini in The Sidestroke, aka the most flattering one-shoulder swimsuit out there.

Santorini is a romantic island, so why not add some subtle sexiness with The Causeway? This one-piece swimsuit is built with playful cutouts, covered with a mesh overlay.

Create this greek goddess look with The Plunge Bikini Top and The Belted Classic High Rise. The bottoms come with a special bonded trim inspired by athleisure. It has no stitching and no seams for the most comfortable high-end finish.

Slip on The Sidestroke in the Sangria, Dragon Fruit, and White Sand color combination and throw on some shorts for a day of exploring. This swimsuit will stay in place as you walk the hills or swim in the sea, thanks to the unique design and construction that offers stability and compression. 

The Sunbather bikini comes in bold colors, just like the island. Adjustable racerback straps and built-in soft cups mean you’ll have the perfect fit.

Color block your way around Santorini with The Marina. Think of it as a wrap dress for the water.

The Voyager in Mango and White Sand stripes can easily be worn as a body suit when you’re not at the pool.

The Horizon one-piece brings coverage, support, and style. The dramatic open back will have people doing a double take as you run into the water.

The Swan Dive is bold and beautiful, just like the island.

Embrace the turquoise waters with The Marina suit in the Pacific, Blue Lagoon, and White Sand combo. The color blocking and diagonal seaming highlight the smallest part of your waist.

Like the sky and sea, you can pop against the whitewashed buildings in The Deep Dive, which comes in the vibrant Pacific and Blue Lagoon colors.

If you can’t make it to Greece, daydream about it next time you’re lounging in one of these colorful suits.
