The southernmost of the Cyclades group and probably the most extraordinary of the Greek Islands, Santorini is a visually stunning landscape of multicoloured cliffs, volcanic beaches and dramatic, arching views. The island as it stands today was formed as the result of a massive volcanic eruption in the 17th century that sank the centre of the island below the sea leaving a caldera (crater) behind. Since then, the island has evolved and the crater walls and rim are now populated with picturesque blue and white houses, villages and resorts giving the island a romantic appeal.
Relax on dark sand beaches surrounded by red lava cliffs or enjoy fabulous sunsets over uninterrupted views of the Aegean sea. Sample some of Greece’s best wine, locally produced in the interior. Alternatively explore the old towns of Fira and Athinos or simply marvel at the surreal sensation of holidaying on an idyllic volcanic crater.
Relish in the fresh produce available on Santorini. Don’t miss the traditional dishes such as tomato balls, stuffed courgettes, wild rabbit and delicious apoxti – a cured ham.
