We found a fabulous restaurant overlooking the bay and watched the sun drop down while drinking a very palatable Rosé and eating equally fine food.

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

Lovely streets and allies full of magic and beautiful views from different areas. Was Very crowded with tourists when I was there (July). Some of the small hotels and b&b looked stunning.

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 to Thirasia as part of the volcano, hot springs, thirrasia tour. we only stopped here for about 2 hours to get some food and enjoy a dip in the sea if we wanted. its worth going as part of the tour just to see a little bit more of santorini
