About Santorini

Santorini is famous not only for its natural beauty but for its cosmopolitan lifestyle with a vigorous nightlife and various restaurants and cocktail bars along with fantastic accommodation facilities with views over the Caldera.

Santorini was destroyed by a powerful volcanic eruption in 1500 B.C. covering the island completely and destroying a highly advanced and powerful civilization (Akrotiri) that lived in the city at the time. However, this eruption created an unrivalled wild landscape with enchanting views and attractions that now make Santorini a must see place.

Stunning clean beaches with black shining pebbles and rugged landscape in the background coupled with black, white and red sands make Santorini a truly unforgettable experience. Famous for its "Caldera", the collection of cliffs bordering the Aegean Sea that in ancient times was an active volcano, Santorini is the Cyclades' most prized possession.

    Organised chaos
    • Getting a ferry in Greece is an experience. Anyone from the UK who works in the Health and Safety Executive would have a heart attack - artic trucks reversing onto a ferry not really secured to the jetty whilst foot passengers embark and disembark on the vehicle ramp. Great fun to watch whilst queuing - being British my wife and i formed an orderly queue of two! Onboard the cabins were excellent, compact and very clean. We were on an overnight (actually very early morning) sailing from Santorini, so other than getting into our cabin and going to bed we only used the bar to get a coffee early in the morning before disembarking in Kos. Nothing negative to report at all.
