Caldera Views

Santorini, one of the Greek Cyclades islands, used to be circular in shape. Then, approx 3,500 years ago, its central volcano erupted and collapsed in on itself. This cataclysmic event quite literally ripped the island apart and allowed the Aegean Sea to flood-in creating the world-famous caldera. This underwater volcanic crater is now surrounded by an outer ring of islands with 300m high sea cliffs along its edge. It’s a dramatic and ruggedly beautiful location:
