The third and last of the island of our first summer vacations Santorini
When going to santorini the boat ride is much better than arriving on a plane, why is this? Well Santorini is way more beautiful when looked at from far on the sea. The view is spectacular all those white houses seem to be holding on to the rocks and the contrast between that and the deep blue sea is stunnig!
The island is in situ of one of the largest volcanic eruptions in recorded history,and because of that a Caldera was formed (A giant central, rectangular lagoon) This caused the sinking of the center of the island .It’s believed that because of earlier volcanic activities ,habitants got scared and abandoned the island leaving entire villages behind.
One of the most important archeological sites of this ancient civilization is the lost Village of Minoan Akrotiri,most of the findings here are at the Athens Archeological Museum, but the entire structure of the village can be visited and admired.
Santorini on and going volcanic activities changed the panorama thousand of years ago, that is why we can find black sand beaches ( its really small pebbles) and Red Sand Beaches, but don’t get fooled water is crystal clear! Also most beaches in greece Since is very very hot have Chaise longs and umbrellas for rent, and the top of the pie for this all umbrellas ( well mostly all i saw) have a contact button to call the bartender from the closest bar for some cold drinks or water!
