Definitely no passport needed for you to experience Santorini!

The Philippines is really blessed not only with beaches but WHITE SAND beaches. There are thousands of resorts you can find in the country. A few of them are inspired to the most famous spot in Greece and the Aegean Sea - Santorini.

So if you are dreaming of going to that place, why not do it here in the Philippines (for now)? You won't need visa, to talk to immigrant department and of course, lots of money just to experience it.

ABOUT SANTORINI, GREECE

Santorini is one of the Cyclades islands in the Aegean Sea. It was devastated by a volcanic eruption in the 16th century BC, forever shaping its rugged landscape.

The whitewashed, cubiform houses of its 2 principal towns, Fira and Oia, cling to cliffs above an underwater caldera (crater). They overlook the sea, small islands to the west and beaches made up of black, red and white lava pebbles.
