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. It's hard to get in, the snorkeling isn't that great and there's no place to sit by the water to relax, unless you... More

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.

We stopped here for a few hours whilst on the volcano tour. It's very peaceful with nothing much to do except swim, eat or climb the 200+ steps to the village at the top (I didn't !) I ate in a small cafe, which was very nice and had a small room to change clothes in :)

The Greek island of Santorini we visited on a cruise. Our ship sailed to the island .... And we opened a magnificent view of rocky coast with beautiful white, pink, blue houses on top of the mountain. Ashore from the ship we were transported on small boats. To get to the town of Oia, it was necessary to climb a... More

We wished we had gone up the path to Manolas as we did 28 years ago which was absolutely fantastic with the loured houses and the checkerboard house (is it still there) ?.
