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.

Nice if you want to spend the day exploring a less developed part of the greek islands. Population of Thirasia is about 200 habitants. Good for hiking, nature walks. We took the 1 euro boat over from Ammoudi Bay. Highly recommend stopping to eat at the Panorama restaurant in Thirasia.

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.

Instead of taking one of the organised boat trips you can get the boat the locals use from Amoudi bay at 8am returning at 12.30pm of leaving 12.40pm returning at 5pm for 1 euro, yes I mean one euro! per person one way.We got off at the 1st stop not knowing any better, we walked across half of the island...
