BORN OF A FIERY VOLCANIC EXPLOSION IN 1450 B.C., SANTORINI TODAY IS THE SHIMMERING PEARL OF THE CYCLADIC ARCHIPELAGO.

The southernmost Cycladic island gracefully curves around a caldera, merging the tranquility of the Aegean Sea with a brilliant, rugged landscape. Sip outstanding local wines, duck into jewel-box sized museums packed with artifacts, squeeze in with the locals at inviting tavernas and line up nightly for one of the world’s most glorious sunset shows.

RED BEACH

Red lava cliffs plunge into turquoise waters, creating a majestic palette of vibrant colors on Santorini’s southern shore. Steep hills strewn with massive ochre boulders lead to an exclusive stretch of dark sand where pink sun beds and striped umbrellas offer refuge from the afternoon heat.
