Many of us want some sort of bliss to take us away from the woes and chills of winter. The beaches of Santorini, Greece offer a Mediterranean bliss that is unequaled in today's fast pace world. The variety of sand, the aqua blue water, and the freshest seafood on the planet can take you away from the negative temperatures and the cloud filled days. Santorini, Greece is approximately an 12 hour flight from New York and it is well worth it. The best time to visit this paradise is during the months of April and May where the beaches are not full of tourists and the hotels are nearly vacant.
