7 DAYS / 10 DIVES IN SANTORINI FROM 1.315€
Santorini belongs to the island complex of Cyclades in the Aegean Sea.
Originally, the island was round in shape and hence its name was «Strogili», which means «round» in Greek. A big earthquake in the late 18th c.-beginning of 17th c. B.C. wiped out the then important port city of Akrotiri. The morphology of the island as we know it today was the result of the big volcanic eruption around 1600 B.C., which just left three pieces of land: The Caldera, Nea Kameni and Thirasia.
Santorini is characterized by great geological variability with white, black and red beaches with volcanic sand, rocks of different strata and colors and of course the spectacular Caldera. Santorini is a great holiday destination because it combines natural beauty, good food, history, relaxation, night life and a choice of activities.
