We had rented a four wheeler to drive around the island and made our way here one afternoon. Small streets with great places to take some photos and take in the local architecture. If in the area would certainly recommend a visit

Six of us stayed in Megalochori, and none of us regretted the choice of location. Quaint town with plenty of shops, restaurants, and wineries. Definitely more relaxing than staying in Fira or Oia (and less expensive), and whether using taxis or the bus (surprisingly efficient...More
