A thousand sunsets, a thousand memories, a thousand heartbeats, colours of blue red & gold streaking the sky ... this is Santorini island ... Poets have written about it, artists attempt to capture its' beauty. Nothing can quite describe it ...

This tiny Greek island, rich in history & steeped in myth, is situated on the southern east tip of the Cyclades Archipelagos. Once famous for its seafaring captains & thriving trade from Russia towards England, France & Italy, & even further back in time the biblical volcanic catastrophy of 1500 B.C., today Santorini is one of the most popular holiday destinations world wide.

Famous Beaches
Perissa Beach
Perissa is considered to be one of Santorini’s best beaches. It has clear crystal waters and smooth black sand, and the best part is during the August winds called the Meltemia. This beach is protected from the winds
Perivolos Beach
Perivolos lies between Vlihada and Perissa. The sand is a dark grey colour & the waters crystal clear. Beach bars & organised water sports are available.
Kamari Beach
Kamari is the most organised beach town on the island. The beach front is a long stretch with many shops, cafes and restaurants. Excellent place for lunch by the beach
Red Beach
Red beach in the Village of Akrotiri. The beach is unique in that the sand is a terracotta red. The contrast of the red and deep blue of the waters is truly unique. A trip to the Red beach is recommended
Vlichada Beach
Vlihada is located in the southern part of the island very near Perivolos. There are impressive hills out of pumice stone located right behind the beach. Quieter than other beaches except in the month of August.
