Santorini Attractions

The island of Santorini is located in the southern waters of the Aegean Sea and is part of the Cyclades group. Despite its small size, the island has a rich and ancient history. The first settlement on the island appeared in 3000 BC. A thousand and a half years later, the island experienced the largest eruption of the volcano Santorin, which caused a tsunami, which not only forever changed the appearance of the island, but also led to the death of the oldest Minoan civilization.

After the eruption from the once large round island remained only a small crescent of sheer cliffs in the western part of the island and gentle beaches in the east. In the west of the island preserved a unique volcanic landscape, created by frozen lava. Sheer cliffs rise from the sea to a height of 100-400 meters, on the slopes of the caldera of the volcano are several settlements of the island – the capital of Fira, the villages of Iya, Imerovigli, Megalahori, Firostefani.

Every settlement on the island – it’s like a miniature box with a secret, because you never know what awaits you around the corner. The long labyrinths of narrow streets can be walked for hours, enjoying the magnificent nature and unique architecture of towns and villages. White houses of settlements shade bright blue domes of churches, on winding streets, scattered a lot of souvenir shops, shops of artisans, restaurants and taverns.

On the east side of the island are amazing beaches with volcanic sand – white and red Beach Akrioti, black beach Kamari, white sands and quaint cliffs of the southernmost beach of the island of Vlihada.

And the vast blue of the sea and the sky around.
