According to legend, Santorini rose up from the depths of the sea and this, in combination with the eruption of the volcano, has led scientists to correlate and compare it to the lost city of Atlantis. The first signs of life were evident as far back as the mid-3rd century B.C. (Early Copper Age). The first name given to the island was Strongyle (“the circular one”) due to its shape. According to Herodotus however, the island was later renamed to Kalliste (“the most beautiful one”) due to its incomparable beauty. Once the island was colonized by Spartans (following the Phoenicians) the island changed its name to Thera, named the after the Spartan leader of the time. Finally, the name Santorini, which is a contraction of the name Santa Irini, was given to the island by the Latin Empire referencing the name of the old cathedral of Saint Irene; the ruins of which were discovered in 1992 at the foot of the mountain in the village of Perissa.

The large volcanic eruptions of circa 1613B.C. (Late Copper Age), and the following collapse of the volcano’s magma chamber/reservoir, lead to the formation of the caldera (a large underwater cauldron-like depression).

The rare natural beauty, the rich history and the unique geomorphology of Santorini have contributed to it becoming one of the world’s top and most sought after destinations. It has become the subject of study for numerous influential scientists as well as an inspiration to famous poets and writers. It is worth noting that the island was even mentioned in Jules Verne’s novel “20,000 Leagues Under the Sea”, as well as Santorini being his main source inspiration in writing his novel “The Mysterious Island”.

This time we set out for the south of Crete. An amazing route to the center of Crete through the Messara plain leads you to our first stop, the Odigitria Monastery, dedicated to Virgin Mary, run and inhabited by monks. It was built during the 14th century and is one of the most historical monasteries on Crete, with a vast land property. It was named after the most famous miraculous icon in the Byzantine Empire. Initially built as a fortress, it still preserves some parts of its original walls.

After a short journey through traditional villages, we reach the famous beach of Matala. This is the place where Zeus, having taken the form of a bull, swam ashore with Europa on his back before dragging her off to Gortys. Both the Minoans and the Romans used the place as their harbor. Nevertheless, for most people, Matala means only one thing: hippies. Back in the late 1960s – 1970s, this little town was a colony of the “flower children”, who lived in the caves that used to be former Roman tombs. Here we will enjoy the crystal waters, the warm sun and lunch by the sea, while later, we can explore the prehistoric caves, carved on the steep rocks of the area.

Our bus tour takes us from Malia, to the other side of Crete, to Elafonisi beach, to an earthly paradise, in one of the most fascinating and unexpected places on the island of Crete. Here, at the beach of Elafonisi, is where we spend the whole day, in a faraway blue lagoon. A beach of exceptional natural beauty, the lagoon is something between an island and a peninsula, as it is accessible only through the lagoon that connects Elafonisi to the mainland of Crete. You can walk this distance easily since the waters are very shallow.
The pink beach is a true heaven of exceptional beauty with intense colors: White sand, which in places becomes pink due to the thousands of broken seashells, crystal clear blue-green waters, little sand islets formed around, are only some of its distinctive features that make this place unique. The beaches are perfect for everyone, especially for children as they are shallow several meters from the shore. Elafonisi lagoon is included in the protected areas of Natura, as it is the place where the Caretta-Caretta turtles are used to laying their eggs.
The legend has it that if you climb up to pay your respects, you have to look for a golden step, which is seen only by a true believer.
