Excellent View

Sunset view here is excellent. Beautiful surrounding, friendly people. However, you may need to reconsider if you intend to take the stairs back up

We stopped off at Thirasia for a couple of hours as part of a boat trip to the volcano. It's a pretty but small island with a long pebbled beach and a narrow harbour full of restaurants. You can take a steep climb upto the village but as it was a flying visit we just popped to one of the... More

Very pretty place, lots and lots of steps, pebble beach, donkeys to take you up the steps, but on the boat tour you don't have time to climb the steps, eat and get back down to the boat.

The place is beautiful, however we didn't like the boat trip. Reading other comments, I noticed that they are all the same, the restaurants are bad and overpriced (specially Captain John, don't go there - this is the restaurant most guides recommend). So if you don't have much time to explore it, better to skip it.

A nice selection of restaurants, and enough time if you'd like to climb the hill to the village of Manolas. We did not. Enjoyed our break walking the port end to end, having a nice lunch, and people watching.

It was a good lunch. Shaded, breezy and excellent food. Well worth the trip. There's a good choice of places to eat or have a drink, plenty of beach to sit on, calm, relaxed and enjoyable.

We could have done with longer at the black beach as didn't have long enough fo a swim and having a meal at the taverna. Maybe could have... More

After to steps down to the harbour there a welcome drink was very much needed. We watched as the cruise ships passengers loaded with gifts boarded back to their luxury and the pirate ship dropping of the days trippers. The for a choice, walk back up the steps in the heat, take the donkey ( definitely not! ) or cable... More

If you have limited time in Santorini, I would suggest to skip Thirasia altogether. You can get there by private boats or boat trips. If you are going with a boat tour, they will give you only 2 hours to explore the village and 30 minutes of it will be spent on climbing the hill up by walk. The village... More
