Santorini, the most southern of the Cyclades islands, is famous for providing its visitors with the quintessential Greek experience. As well as the nearby smaller islands of Therasia, Aspronisi, Palaia Kameni and Nea Kameni, Santorini itself offers all the things that Greece is known for, with beautiful scenery, fabulous food, welcoming people and stunning beaches just some of its many attractions.
The island's stunning and unique scenery is largely due to a massive volcanic eruption that occurred around 3,000 BC that was also responsible for the demise of the Minoan civilization. The huge crater that was formed at the time has left 300-foot high cliffs upon which many of the islands villages are now built. Typically Greek, Santorini has various places of archaeological and historical interest. The aura and beauty of the great volcano is joined by the Venetian fortress at Pyrgos and the ruins of ancient Thira to make a truly fascinating destination.
The aesthetic beauty of Santorini can be clearly seen on the stunning beaches that line the coast. Here you will find a number of different beach sports and activities available. If you are lucky enough to take your course in July, you may also be able to attend the religious festival which takes place annually on the island's highest peak, at the monastery of the Prophet Elijah. However, no matter when you visit Santorini, you are guaranteed to find the perfect place to take your TEFL course.
