Santorini


Santorini has dramatic views

It isfamous for dramatic views, stunning sunsets from Oia town, the strangewhite aubergine (eggplant), the town of Thira and naturally its very own active volcano. There arenaturally fantastic beaches such as the beach of Perissa, maybe the best beachin Santorini, the black pebble beach of Kamari, white beach andred beach.

 

How to get to Santorini


There are many ferries a day in the summer andusually one or two a day in the off-season. The ferries take about 8 or 9hours to Santorini and stop at a couple other islands on the way, usuallyParos, Naxos and Ios.

Flying to Santorini is certainly the easy wayto reach the island. The flight is an hour, but actually you spend about halfan hour in the air and ten minutes of it is taking off and another ten islanding and the rest is flying over your favorite islands and wishing you hadmore time to see more of them.
