About SantoriniSantorini is a stunning Greek island in the middle of the Aegean Sea, renowned for its whitewashed towns, world-famous sunsets and volcanic beginnings. The island was formed by a massive volcanic eruption in 1450 BC, which caused the middle of the isle to collapse and left a steep-edged crater known as a caldera peeping above the waves. With its hot weather and long summer season, Santorini is the perfect destination for a holiday from May to October. The island is a traditional Greek paradise, with whitewashed houses, blue-domed churches and never-ending vineyards. The capital Thira is perched on top of the caldera rim overlooking the Aegean, and the northern town of Oia is the best place to see the island’s famous sunsets. For those looking for something a bit more budget-friendly, the east coast of Santorini has plenty to offer. Kamari and Perissa line up some great beaches with silky black sand, and it’s only a 20-minute drive to Thira, where you can watch the sun go down.
