Who hasn’t fantasized about the sun-kissed islands of Greece, enjoying the soft ocean breeze, seeing the waves splash against the seaside rock faces? The country has long been a target for romanticization, whether in movies (Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life) or in postcards. The Greek isles have always had a charm about them.
One of these enchanting collection of isles is the beautiful Santorini, known for its blindingly white and blue architecture and close proximity to the ocean. Santorini has a slight crescent-shape and is comprised of several islands: Thíra, Thirassiá, Asproníssi, Palea and Nea Kaméni. One of the surprising things about this place is that the complex of Santorini is actually an active volcano? The islands themselves were formed by intense volcanic activity many years. But don’t worry! The last “big eruption” was as long ago as 3,600 years into the past.
Why should you take a trip to these magical isles? A lot of people travel for the romantic vibes the island gives off. It’s even been known as a great, nature-surrounded destination for the quaintest of weddings. Speaking of nature, those volcanic beaches are a treat all on their own featuring breathtaking waters and stones that feel like they massage your feet as you walk around. And because the island’s volcanic soil is richer and help promotes healthy plant growth, give the local market a try and see what kind of fresh veggies, wines, and goat cheeses you can enjoy.
These isles are definitely inviting and visitors will definitely get a lot of experiences and memories to last them a lifetime when they set foot on this beautiful venue.
