Curving around a majestic caldera, Santorini is one of the prettiest of the Greek Isles. Hop on the tender boat ashore, where the cable car will whisk you up to the cliff-top village of Thira with its quaint streets filled with restaurants, bars, and shops. Pay a visit to the cave houses at the beautiful village of Oia before heading down the steps to Amoudi Bay to feast on fresh seafood. Taste the unique beers at the Donkey Brewery close to the black pebbled sands of Kamari Beach. Explore the island's history at the Akrotiri archaeological site or admire the dramatic coastline by catamaran.

Rhodes, Greece
The Port of Rhodes sits on the northern edge of Rhodes Island — 12 miles off the coast of Turkey. With just a short walk you’ll reach the Citadel of Rhodes and its various boutiques, cafes and souvenir shops. Immerse yourself further in Rhodes’ fascinating history and visit the Palace of the Grand Masters. You can take a short 50-minute taxi ride to Lindos and witness the breathtaking Acropolis of Lindos. There are also an abundance of beaches on Rhodes to chill out and relax.
7
Souda, Greece
A horseshoe of sand and calm water, Souda is a laid-back port with a pretty bay found on Crete's north-west coast. Souda has been an important wartime site for centuries — particularly for the USA during World War II — and the ancient Greeks and Ottomans once even battled on a formerly-fortified island found just across the bay! Head west and you find the Venetian-style town of Chania — or Hania. Explore colourful townhouses, look around museums, visit one of the world's oldest lighthouses, and enjoy the views and sounds of the bay from a terraced cafe on the waterfront.
