Santorini is the most southerly of the islands that make up the Cyclades chain. It is only a small island but it packs a lot of interest in with its amazing geology, holiday resorts and sunsets. The explosion that destroyed the volcano that once made up the island (and put an end to the Minoan civilisation) at around 2500BC was one of the biggest cataclysms of all time, the crater that remains is four times the size of that at Krakatoa. Fortunately the rock isn't all volcanic rubble, the mountains that make up the southern end of the island are limestone, and here a couple of climbing venues have been developed.
