Thira Guide

Located in the southern Aegean Sea is the Greek island of Santorini and lies around 200 km to the south east of the Greek mainland. It forms part of the Cycladic group of islands and is the only location in Europe to have a hot desert climate. A popular pastime for visitors to Santorini is to take a cruse to the island's three islets, which were created in ancient times during a volcanic eruption. The islets are called Nea Kammeni, Palea Kammeni and Thirassia and provide an excellent vantage point for visitors to see the volcano, being located to the west of the island. The island's capital is Fira and is full of typical Cycladic houses with whitewashed walls, blue domed churches and stepped streets full of shops, cafes, restaurants and bars.

The island of Santorini has two ports. The main port is Athinios, where all the ferry and commercial boats arrive. There is also the Old Port which is mostly used for cruise ships. From the main port, ferries can be taken to Piraeus, Rafina and to the other islands in the Cyclades. Both conventional and high speed ferries operate on these routes.

Koufonissi Guide

The Greek island of Koufonisia is located to the east of the island of Naxos and to the west of the island of Amorgos, and is made up of two islets named Pano Koufonisi and Kato Koufonisi. The two islets are separated by a strait which is around 200 meters wide and the island's name is derived from the Greek for "Hollow Island" which is a reference to the large caves which led pirates to believe that the island was hollow when viewed from the sea. Located close to Koufonisia is the deserted island of Keros which has been declared an archaeological site that is under protection because of the many Cycladic artefacts that have been found on the island.

Pano Koufonisi is the only inhabited of the two islets and is a popular destination for visitors who want to relax on the island's golden sandy beaches or to swim in the island's war, crystal clear waters.
