Santorini is a place that will seduce you with its amazing landscape, dramatic heights and magnificent sunsets.
This is a place of wonder that you can best enjoy by sailing boat and sail the aegean. You can admire the island, from your yacht as well as on the land. This is the perfect place for a honeymoon!
Santorini is known as the “Honeymoon island”. A great number of couples choose this island for their wedding ceremony or the renewal of their vows. Also a perfect destination to celebrate an anniversary.
The beaches have warm black sand, spectacular scenery for you to enjoy, it is romantic and laid back. The island’s is meant for relaxing in the extraordinary sun shine beaches, and has a traditional Greek flare and an exciting nightlife.
Santorini’s breathtaking landscape was forged by the second most powerful volcanic eruption recorded in historic times, in the Minoan era , between 1642- 1540 BCE.
Santorini also has an abundant grape harvest, and the wines they make are among the best in Greece. You can visit one of the island wineries for a tasting. They also grow some very tasty, tiny Santorini tomatoes as well as white eggplants, and extraordinarily large and fresh capers. You should be sure to take in at least one sunset over the caldera it is magnificent.
It is for sure the most romantic island of Greece. What could add more to that loving feeling than sailing the Aegean sea on your yacht sharing the sunset view with your loved one?
Ancient Thira is one of the island’s must see destinations. Dramatically positioned on top of a high cape, looking over a black lava beach; the ruins of this Roman, Greek, and Byzantine city spread out over acres of rocky landscape. It is absolutely incredible to see all of the history that has been uncovered.
GREECE is a unique place to choose for your summer holidays.

Greece's Island Groups
Greece's roughly 6,000 islands and islets (227 of which are inhabited) are scattered far and wide across the eastern Mediterranean. Most are in the Aegean Sea (south and east of mainland Greece), while a few are in the Ionian Sea (west of the mainland). The islands are divided into distinct clusters:
The Ionian Islands, are Greece's northwest gateway to the Adriatic and the rest of Europe — they've had more foreign invaders and rulers than anywhere else in the country. The main island is Corfu (Kerkyra in Greek), with a bustling, architecturally eclectic main town and a lush, green islandscape dotted with attractions and beaches.
The Saronic Gulf Islands ( Argosaronikos ), conveniently wedged between the Peloponnese and Athens, ooze lots of island charm and give you a chance to get away from it all without actually going very far. Hydra, my favorite, is in this group.
The Sporades Islands, due east of Athens, are dominated by the giant Evia island, which is attached to the mainland by a bridge. Thickly forested and less touristed by international visitors, the Sporades are a popular and handy weekend getaway for Athenians.
The Cycladic Islands (or simply Cyclades ) — a bit farther south, between Athens and Crete — are the prototypical "Greek islands," boasting chalk-white houses with colorful windowsills and doorways; rocky, sun-parched landscapes; delightful beaches; old-fashioned white windmills topped with tufts of grass like unkempt hair; and an almost overwhelming crush of international visitors. Mykonos and Santorini are the two best and most famous of the Cyclades. Near Mykonos is the archaeological site of Delos (one of the most important locales of the ancient world).
The Dodecanese Islands, at the sunny, southeastern end of the Greek lands, are more rustic and less developed than the Cyclades. Their proximity to Turkey and historic ties to Venice give them a hybrid Turkish-Venetian flavor (though the population is mostly ethnic Greek, these islands merged with Greece only after World War II). Rhodes, with an appealing and very real-feeling Old Town, is the biggest of these islands.
The North Aegean Islands, relatively untrampled and remote-feeling, lie roughly between Turkey and Thessaloniki (at the northern end of mainland Greece). The southernmost of these, Samos, is a particularly handy springboard for Turkey, as it's very close to the Turkish port city of Kusadas? (near the remarkable ancient site of Ephesus).
Crete is Greece's biggest island and practically a mini-state of its own (in fact, from 1897 to 1913 it was an autonomous state within the Ottoman Empire). While many of Greece's smaller islands merit a day or two of fun in the sun, Crete could occupy even a busy traveler for a week or more. Historically, Crete was home to the Minoans — the earliest advanced European civilization, peaking around 1950 B.C., centuries before "the ancient Greeks" of Athens. While Crete's modern main city, Iraklio, is drab and uninviting, the rest of the island offers an engaging diversity of attractions: Minoan ruins, scenic mountains, enticing beaches, characteristic rustic villages, and dramatic caves and gorges (including the famous Samaria Gorge).
Even if you are having no sailing experience we can offer you a sailing yacht with a captain.
Experienced sailors can enjoy the strong winds in the Aegean Sea, while others might choose the mild winds and safer bays of Argosaronicos Gulf, Sporades islands or the Ionian Sea. In few words, sailing in Greece can offer all the pleasure a sailor might seek in summer holidays.
