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.

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
