Santorini is a volcanic island in the Cyclades group of the Greek islands. It is located between Ios and Anafi islands. It is famous for dramatic views, stunning sunsets from Oia town, the strange white aubergine (eggplant), the town of Thira and naturally its very own active volcano. There are naturally fantastic beaches such as the beach of Perissa, maybe the best beach in Santorini, the black pebble beach of Kamari, white beach and red beach.
You can also watch a brand new event on the island. For those who don’t know, Red Bull has been organising Free Running Parkour Events in Santorini for several years now. And each year the experience is spectacular. Imagine little white snowdrop houses with curved dome roofs cascading down the Caldera cliffs. And then imagine a bunch of people flying through the air, bouncing from rooftop to rooftop. And all this to the setting of the sun, the Aegean Sea and of course our very own Volcano.
The Best Free Running Athletes from Around The World converge on Santorini once a year. Each astounds the crowds that gather to applaud and marvel. By the time the competition is in full swing, not a single inch of Santorini’s beautiful architecture is visible – dangling legs, waving arms, smiling faces, old, young, islanders and visitors alike have literally “re-decorated” the scene, each vying for a front row perch.
