One of the southern Cyclades islands, Santorini is the best known island in Greece and one of the top holiday destinations in the world. On top of that, it is one of the most photographed places on the planet and among the best wedding destinations in the world.
Geology is to blame here. Devastating volcano eruptions have formed a dramatic scenery of volcanic dark rock that plunges into the Aegean Sea. As an aftermath, an entire civilization that some claim to have been Atlantis has been brought to its end. A huge caldera has been left behind, forming Santorini of today, a world class holiday destination.
When going to Santorini, make sure to bring your camera and capture as much as you can. Fira, Firostefani and Oia, the most visited settlements of Santorini are hanging at the edge of the caldera offering unique views of the Aegean Sea and the most romantic sunset you’ve ever seen.
Santorini is ideal for couples of any age, so feel free to take your sweetheart along and relive the passion. It simply cannot get more romantic than this. And if you are about to get married, then Santorini will engrave unforgettable memories to your mind.
Accessing the beaches of Santorini is a bit of a challenge. There are only a few beachfront resorts on the island where you get the opportunity to swim in the volcanic formed basin with the characteristic gray sand and the dark blue waters. So, if you are staying by the caldera, make sure to rent a car and visit Kamari beach, Perissa beach and, of course, the famous Red beach.
What is not known to many is that Santorini is indeed a gastronomic destination. The volcano is to blame for that too, leaving behind a very fertile soil with enough ash that keeps it well aerated, every time it erupted. The small tomatoes and the fava of Santorini are the top products together with the world famous Santorinian wine.
You will find accommodation in Santorini of exceptional standards. Design hotels and suites with cave rooms, infinite pools and the most breathtaking view you have ever seen.
Whether you just need a holiday, you wish to renew your passion or propose to your true love, look no further, Santorini is the most magical place to be. As most travel agents will agree, you haven’t visited Greece until you visit Santorini.
