One of the attractions that attracts many tourists is the black and red beaches. This means one thing - the abundance of natural components of the coast, cliffs, and underwater waters. Usually, this color is obtained from a volcanic eruption, from the solidified lava from which beach sand is obtained. An interesting fact is that the volcano on Santorini is active. Its last major eruption was in 1953. He is the cause of popular filming locations - black beaches of sand from solidified volcanic lava.

Santorini in Greece is also the most visited island in the world. More than 1.5 million tourists visit it annually, wishing to walk along the narrow streets along the snow-white houses with blue roofs, enjoy the local harvest of cherry tomatoes and olives, and enjoy the panoramas of the Aegean Sea and the mesmerizing sunset landscapes. The architecture and nature of the development are fascinating. Houses on the side of the caldera are dug into the ground and built at different levels so that the courtyard of one place is the roof of another, and tourists get the impression that they live in caves.
