The charming island is the result of an enormous volcanic eruption that took place approximately 3600 years ago, during 1700 B.C.
The event marked its history since the eruption changed the circular shape of the island and created the famous caldera, on top of which picturesque villages have been constructed on the edge of the cliffs incorporating the Cycladic architecture, offering breathtaking views to the Aegean Sea.Apart from the fabulous views, Santorini is also famous for its romantic sunset, the volcano and the luxurious boutique resorts.
A part of Cyclades complex, Santorini is situated on the South Aegean with Greek population of 17.000 local residents, living all year round.
The main period of year most guests decide to visit Santorini is from the beginning of April until late October, although even during winter time the island attracts visitors, coming mostly from Eastern countries.
Apart from the stunning views of the must-see villages such as Fira, Imerovigli and Oia located on the cliffs, the southern side of the island has a wide range of beaches to enjoy a day in the sun, easily accessible by everyone.
Kamari and Perissa are the most organized and famous for its black sand and deep blue waters. Very popular is also the impressive Red beach due to its unique landscape, close where the Prehistoric Minoan site of Akrotiri, the most well preserved throughout Greece.
