Santorini Named “Best World’s Island” in 2011 by BBC Travel

The island of Santorini in the Aegean Sea received worldwide spotlight after BBC Travel named it the “Best World’s Island” for 2011 on a slide-show feature issued on Wednesday, November 30, 2011.

This is the first time the Greek island ranks on the top of the list.

“In Santorini, you feel like no other spot on earth. Here, 120 miles southeast of mainland Greece, everything is brighter: the white houses, the sea and the sunsets over the caldera,“ reports the BBC.

Joining Santorini in the list of world’s five best islands are Bali in Indonesia, Cape Breton in Canada, the islands of Boracay in the Philippines and the Great Barrier Reef in Australia.
