Back in 1450 BC the island muted into its current form when the circular volcano of which it is composed erupted creating a colossal explosion which blew out the middle. This left a huge crater (cadera) which suddenly filled with water causing a tsunami which devastated Minoan Crete. Subsequent volcanic activity in 197 BC and 1707 led to the emergence of the central islands of Palaia Kameni and Nea Kameni which are still volcanically active today. And thus the island acquired its archipelago form and hence the black beaches.
