About Santorini....

Santorini is a volcanic island in the Cyclades group of the Greek islands. It is located between Ios and Anafi islands (North of Crete). It is famous for its dramatic views, stunning sunsets from Oia town, the strange white aubergine (eggplant), and of course Fava, the town of Fira, Oia and naturally its very own active volcano. The wine lovers will find the island also fascinating, having 13 official wineries. There are naturally fantastic beaches such as the beach of Perissa, maybe the best beach in Santorini, the black pebble beach of Kamari, white beach, and red beach.

Santorini was awarded by Global Traveler as the Best Island in Europe title for 2020 (the seventh consecutive year).
