As sunsets go Santorini is probably one of the best even more so when there is a baldy head part of the view. This is a classic Baldscape, great scene stunning location and a baldy taking a carefully crafted selfie
Santorini is a Greek island like no other. It was created from a volcanic explosion that left it with volcanic cliffs overlooking a black and red coast, dazzling against the turquoise Mediterranean. Vibrant historic towns spread out along cliff tops, where whitewashed buildings cluster around central squares and the best transport to the beach is by donkey. This is somewhere you have to see for yourself, and more and more people are recognising that by booking a holiday to Santorini.The island spoons the vast crater left by one of the biggest volcanic eruptions in history. Smaller islands curl around the fragmented western edge of the caldera, but it is the main island of Thira that will take your breath away with its snow-drift of white Cycladic houses lining the cliff tops and, in places, spilling like icy cornices down the terraced rock. When the sun sets, the reflection on the buildings and the glow of the orange and red in the cliffs can be truly spectacular.
Santorini is no secret and draws crowds for most of the year, yet it wears its tourism well and its offerings make it worth the bustle. The island’s intrigue reaches deep into the past, with the fascinating Minoan site of Akrotiri and the gorgeous traditional hilltop village of Oia. It also glides effortlessly into the future with accomplished artists, excellent wineries, a unique microbrewery, and some of the Cyclades finest accommodation and dining experiences. The multicoloured beaches are simply the icing on the cake.
