Semi Private Standard | Santorini Catamaran Cruise with Greek buffet and drinks

905 reviews
Full of hidden coves and snorkeling spots, Santorini’s gorgeous coastline is best seen from the water. This catamaran cruise takes you to a series of beaches and landmarks that can only be reached by boat, with time to soak in the island’s volcanic hot springs, too. Plus, with two tour times to choose from and round-trip transport, food, and snorkeling gear all included, this tour is extremely convenient for any traveler wanting to add it to their itinerary.

This village had been recommended by several people as a very pretty village and in truth it was but it was also very small! We parked the car and probably spent 45 minutes in the village walking the main street. There was a cave house advertised that we visited and saw the huge caves that tunneled into the hillside and were used as earthquake shelters. The main square with the church was pretty and there were the usual very narrow side streets but, even if I'd had space for a coffee, I'd have been pushed to spend an hour there.

My favourite village in Santorini. Small, hidden, quiet, not crowded and car-free. You better park outside the village because the roads are very very narrow. It is well kept, and while is not directly on the sea, there are some good views. Lot of restaurant in the plaza but if you want a more traditional experience walk a bit further and look for the tavernas. They are hidden but offer fantastic value.

Super traditional! Probably the nicest town not directly with a terrace on the sea. Come here to breath the true Greece.

Megalochori was a fantastic location for us . Quiet village with a small square where the best restaurants were Raki (tomatoe balls a favourite ) and Marmita The accommodation and overall service from Ducato was outstanding. The accommodation at villa Lo , an old school was absolutely superb . . Then we moved to Mansion 1878 , which was equally stunning , based in an old winery . In Megalochori, we hired a car for 3 days - cheapest ever at 30 euros and didn’t even need a credit card. We were also about five minutes from the most stunning. Views ever , on our last night we walked 5 minutes from the hotel and sat and watched the sunset with a glass of beer - the sunsets in Santorini are simply the best . We drove to Oia and watched the sunset , had a day And night in Fira Walking down the steps to the old port and then getting the cable car back up , went on a semi private Catomaran to red beach , white beach , the volcano island and had. Brilliant bbq , walked to pyrgos (worth finding the back path as per Julia Bradbury programme ) through the vineyards where we had a drink at the rosemary bar , and then Mezzi at Franco s watching the sunset , we went to the beach at Perrisa and then ate at Popeyes, and we loved going to Amoundi Bay , stunning location , with a walk just around the corner where you can watch or participate in cliff diving -the beauty of Santorini is quite simply stunning.

It's a traditional village, very beautiful near Perissa. You can walk in the alleys, take pictures of them and the churches, eat and drink. There are 2 parkings, one at the beginning of the village and the other one at the end of it.
