Discover the beauty of the world’s most unique island.
Santorini, a resplendent island sculpted by the forces of nature over millennia, harbours an array of experiences that captivate even the most seasoned globetrotter. Its magnificent vistas can leave an indelible impression on those who believe they’ve witnessed all life has to offer. Yet perhaps the island’s most enchanting quality is its duality. On one side, witness the majestic Caldera, Oia’s world-renowned sunset, the dynamic pulse of cosmopolitan Fira, and on the other hand, the rich history of the volcanic landscape and ruins.
Situated on the north-western edge of Santorini, the picturesque town of Oia has become renowned on this Aegean Island for its magnificent views and authenticity. This charming town is distinguished by its whitewashed dwellings, skilfully carved into the rugged cliffs, and displaying breath-taking vistas of the expansive caldera, filled with crystalline waters. Within a 19th-century mansion, you can find the Naval Maritime Museum, showcasing the rich maritime history of the region, and exhibiting ancient figureheads, seafarers’ chests, and intricate models of bygone ships. Nearby, the historic Oia Castle lies in ruins, famed for its mesmerizing sunset panoramas.
Danae Suites is situated a brief walk from Oia, nestled in the serene haven of Finikia, a quaint village that time seems to have forgotten. Cycladic stone architecture, vibrant bougainvillea-filled courtyards, and cobblestone paths create a picturesque landscape untouched by cars. A sunset stroll towards Kyra-Panagia, exploring local delicacies or tasting Vinsanto grapes is a must.
Santorini’s marvels, conveniently accessible from Finikia, await exploration. Let us arrange a yacht tour to the mesmerizing volcanic sites of Palia and Nea Kammeni, offering staggering Caldera views from sea level to the peak. Savour the 4000-year-old tradition of Assyrtiko wine at one of Santorini’s 21 exceptional wineries.

For those seeking to explore further parts of the island, a visit to the Akrotiri, one of Greece’s most prominent archaeological sites is a must-see attraction.

Beachgoers on the other hand will enjoying visiting the distinctive Red and Black beaches, their sand distinguished by their respective hues, originating from pulverised volcanic rock.
