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.

    Quite good night boat
    • The ferry was quite stable and good for sleeping. Facilities were same as normal hotel. But the table was too small.

    Did the job but could be better
    • Was an alright ferry trip except was pretty annoying when we boarded all the seats had people sleeping long ways on them-fine, first in best dressed. There was only a couple of chairs left so we went to lie down next to one and told no sleeping on the floor. If people can sleep longways on every seat then people should be able to sleep out of the way on the floor on an overnight ferry.

    A new experience
    • I booked my journey from Santorini to Rhodes via Blue Star and was most impressed. I had a lovely cabin that was clean and comfortable. The crew were helpful and due to my trip being a night sailing, I slept through. Prices for food and drink were high but nothing worse than I've experienced before. I'd use this service again.

    Island hopping
    • Apart from being a little late and a very miserable individual in the office at Santorini port- the ferry trip was excellent. Good value for money, the cabin was adequate with a good shower. Everywhere was clean. Check in was efficient. Overall, it was a very enjoyable experience.
