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.

I visited Thirasia because it was included in the excursion package. But after a long day, we were too tired to walk up to see the landscape. So we sat in the restaurant beside the shore. It was an easy breezy dazzling afternoon. The food are cheap and delicious.

Great place to spend a day if you are in Santorini for more than 3 or 4 days. Very quiet and small. Definitely a different pace than Oia. We took the normal ferry from Amoudi Bay which goes over to the island at 8am and 12:30pm. It makes 2 stops when you get to Thirasia, get off at the first... More

We got the local ferry from Amoudi Bay - check the times at the harbour, only ran 3 times a day in summer 2014 - and it only costs 1 euro each way - winner! Apart from the locals and the delivery of chips there was only us and another couple. We got off at Korfos and walked up the... More

It seems they just lead us there to waste time until the sunset on Oia. Food was not good and there is nothing to do on the island.
