Santorini: Where the sky meets the sea

Santorini: Where the sky meets the sea


In the southern quadrant of the Cyclades sits the dreamy island of Santorini, surrounded by its own tiny archipelago. This group of islands comprises Therasia, Aspronisi, PaleaKameni, and Nea Kamen. They sit at the edge of a volcanic caldera, as reminders of the dreadful eruption of 1627 b.C. that forever altered Santorini’s morphology, originally a circular island.

Santorini’s name may perhaps inspire religious thoughts, but yachters come here itfor the vibrant nightlife, splendidly isolated sites, and unmatched beauty that make it a top-rated destination of many holidays in the Mediterranean.

Many bars and clubs animate the dazzling nightlife, but Santorini has even more to offer than entertainment. Celebrities and regular tourists flock here on their luxury yachts to enjoy a mix of sea, sun, and natural beauty that takes the breath away.

The island’s dual nature of clubbing hotspot and natural attraction is its blessing, drawing crowds of visitors, who sail here on their Silver Star Yachting luxury charters attracted by a dreamy landscape and ample offer of romantic accommodation. There is no lovelier backdrop to a sunset on the beach, followed by a nightly dip in the sea and a delectable dinner on deck, than the charming Santorini.

Ribbons of dark and red sand and tiny hamlets that reach out to the sky from the top of precipitous cliffs add to the magic of the place. Different from the other Greek islands, Santorini boasts the stunning Fira and Imerovigli, where tourists get an authentic taste of life in the Greek interior. Their narrow alleys and icy-white houses, interspersed with archeological sites, paint a truly spectacular picture. Fira is also the main center of the island, boasting starred restaurants and exclusive bars.

Red Beach, located in the south, and White Beach, a piece of paradise huddled below a majestic cliff, are on top of the must-see list of every tourist who gets here on a luxury yacht charter. Both can be accessed only by boat. Sail out to Amoudi, Kambia, Vourvoulos, Thermi, Kokkini Paralia, Balos and Almyra for a great swim and many relaxing hours in the sun.

Cruising along the coast of Santorini on a yacht charter is certainly the best way to enjoy the island to the fullest.
