Santorini Maps and Orientation
(Santorini, Cyclades, Greece)
Located directly to the south of mainland Greece and within the Aegean Sea, the volcanic island of Santorini part of the island group known as the Cyclades. Santorini is sandwiched between the neighbouring islands of Anafi and Ios, and boasts some exceptional natural beaches and resorts, which vary greatly and feature everything from fine white sand to dark pebbles.
Home to a population of around 14,000 islanders, Santorini's capital is the town of Fira, on the western coast, and just over 2,000 people live here. Around the island are many further communities, which tend to be scattered around the coastline, where houses are often squeezed tightly together, each one competing for the best sea views.
