Santorini is located in the middle of the Aegean Sea, between Ios and Anafi. When the ship approaches the island, you will see the impressive steep cliffs and the whitewashed houses that shine like diamonds on the rocks. This unique landscape is the result of one of the largest volcanic eruptions in human history, which occurred in 1613 B.C. and literally destroyed the island. A huge underwater crater was created (Caldera) and two volcanoes emerged from its center, the Old and New Kameni.
Fira, the island's capital, Imerovigli and Oia seem to be “hanging” on the cliff, offering a breathtaking view to the sea, especially during sunset. The beaches of Santorini possess a wild beauty due to their dark colored sand. The volcanic soils of the island actually produce excellent products such as internationally renowned wines and delicious tomatoes and beans.
Thousands of visitors from all around the world visit Santorini every year. The island is well known for its warm hospitality, modern infrastructure, and uniqueness of the landscape.
