Sail away The sight of Santorini from the sea is stunning. Hop on a boat trip across the caldera to take in the awe-inspiring volcanic island. A clutch of nearby islands are also worth exploring. There is Thirassiaisland with the whitewashed village of Horio perched at the top of 250 stairs. And don't miss the volcanically active PaleaKameni and NeaKameni with their smouldering sulphur craters, natural hot springs and bubbling mud pools. Sail in style with Captain Ted on board one of his gleaming white catamarans. Trips include daytime or sunset tours with seafood and steak barbecue in a private bay, from £88 per person (00 30 694 424 1162; www.santorinisailing.com).
