Santorini is located on an Active Volcano, which covered an entire area in ash the last time it rained down on the cities. The clay homes and the architectural marvels of the 1400 BC is something you’ll remember. This Pompeii-esque beauty holds the life of that era in a picture-perfect scenery.

4. Nea Kameni
One of those spaces that hold the history of the island in its palm. The Nea Kameni holds the active volcano in space. While, it’s not accessible unless you have a boat, and have tried out a tour. This area is somewhat of a novelty, filled with a charred landscape and sulfur vents along the way you have to hike up a trail to see the actual sight of the active volcano and take it all in. Nea Kameni is also known for the nearby water, and it’s sure to make you wonder how something so pristine, and something so disruptive lives in harmony in nature.
5. Red Beach
