Red Beach (Santorini), Vlychada, Perissa Beach (Santorini), White Beach (Santorini) and Kamari Beach (Santorini) are beaches with wild natural beauty, which creates an outstanding scenery around the lunar coves.

History

Santorini has also a rich and long history, which makes it the dream travel destination for those, who love ancient history. It was the cradle of the Cycladic Neolithic civilisation, which has been destroyed by the eruption of the volcano around 1,650 B.C. In Fira Santorini, there are two significant museums, the Prehistoric Thera Museum, which presents the most important murals found at the prehistoric settlement of Akrotiri Minoan Site (Santorini), and the Archaeological Museum of Thera, which hosts statues and findings from the Archaic, Geometric, Hellenistic and Roman Periods. The archaeological site at is definitely worth a visit as it was constructed around 4,500 B.C. and was covered by ashes and lava due to the enormous volcanic eruption around 1,650 B.C., and thus, it was preserved intact through time.
