We went as part of the volcano/hot springs tour. Landed in the middle of the day along with several other boats making for a very crowded dock. Beach was too Rocky to tolerate getting in the water and the heat made hiking up to town difficult (we turned back half way because the heat was so intense). Would recommend volcano... More

I stopped at Thirasia as part of a volcano tour and was told the beach was amazing. Yes, the water is calm and clear, but it's not a beach. It's a port with large rocks and boulders.

We stopped on Thirasia for lunch from our volcano, hot springs cruise. It was UNBELIEVABLE. Views you see of little boats floating in all different colors in the deep blue and green sea is here. We saw baby kittens running around playing together, and had the BEST calamari of our lives. IN LOVE with this place. :)

Avoid the crowds in Oia, go Thirasia and meet the nice people in the village who are so friendly and kind and almost tourist free. Imagine Santorini looking like that back in the days. Love it!

We went there as a part of volcano tour. It was a surprise as it was very peaceful. There are restaurants which looked very good. Its quite good for a short trip.

Very busy, great views, plenty of shops. Lots of buses. Only dislike was the WC at the bus station, it was a hole in the ground, that you had to pay 50c for.
