If you are limited with time... skip. Not much to see here. There are much better places in Santorini...

Took the ferry from Amoudi Bay to Thirasia, the ferry stops at two locations on the Island. I think the first location is mostly used by locals as this have vehicular access to the only real village on the Island. The second stop, docks under said village, this is where the boat trips visiting the Volanco also alight. There are... More

We visited Thirassia on one of the package boat tours (volcano, hot springs, Thirassia). The island is much less touristy than Santorini and would really have liked to explore it more but 2 hours is certainly not enough. You can either stay in the bay: beautiful crystal clear water great for some snorkeling; or you can climb up and walks... More

One of the restaurant at the end of the end of the harbor. Food is ok, especially for that price. Cod fish on the grill.

If you really want to see this island, the multi-stop boat tours that are so popular just don't work. It's a two hour stop and a long walk up to the town. It just takes up too much time, so you have no time to really look around. (Let alone to have the lunch you're supposed to be happening.) So... More

We took a boat tour that included the volcano and hot springs as well as Thirassia. We got of the boat on the island, walked around a little bit and had some lunch. There is also a trail of stairs up to the top of the island which you can do with either donkeys or by walking, it's supposed to... More

Our National Geographic Sea Cloud Sailing Ship adventure last summer visited this beautiful spot as part of our Aegean Sea journey. It was simply stunning. Our guides selected Oia especially because it was less crowded, and they were right. Hope to visit again.

Excursion boats call here for two hours. And while at the beginning I thought this too much, finally the Korfos harbour area was quite picturesque, with an array of decent taverns. Time allowing, it is also possible to climb some 200+ stairs up to the village of Manolas. This is definitely the place to run away from the crowds in... More

We were only on the island for 2 hours. the beach was lovely but the restaurants were not great. I did the 30 min uphill walk to see the old town which has literally not changed for 100s of years. It's definitely worth seeing but it's very dirty, half dead cats everywhere, no flowers and hardly any people.

We stopped here for lunch during a boat tour of the volcano. We stayed along the beach and ate at one of the many restaurants on the water's edge. A donkey ride takes you up to the town, but you have to walk back down which takes 20-30 minutes on a steep decline.
