A sea volcano woke up in either 1350, or 1500 BC. It spat ashes and threw out tons of pumice. The explosion hit almost  38 sq. miles (100 sq. km) of land at the bottom of the sea, forming the largest existing caldera, which raised a huge, 688 foot (210 meters) tall wave that destroyed the...
"Santorini is definitely the most impressive island from a variety of sights in Greece. The beauty of this island is admirable. It’s wild, unearthly, created by a volcano, which is burning in a gulf in the middle of the island, like a black monster that has plunged a part of its body into the...

Mykonos, in many respects, outperforms  Santorini . Beaches here are much better and there are much more of them; no need to climb 15 minutes up on a donkey or stand in line for a cable car to get from the sea to the city. There are no crowds of tourists, and at the same time...
