Full-Day Santorini Island Trip from Crete

37 reviews
Swap an independent ferry trip to Santorini from Crete for a full-day tour that includes a cruise and sightseeing once you’re there. Avoid the hassle of arranging your own cabs or buses on the Cycladic island; and simply sit back and admire its whitewashed clifftop towns as you sail the caldera. Then, enjoy a coach tour with time to stroll in the capital, Thira; Oia, and along the island’s clifftops.

We hired a car for a couple of days and added this to the list of places to visit and glad we did. It’s really impressive and much bigger than we expected with the entrance behind the small chapel. Be sure to take your phone or a torch.

You would never know the bunkers are there, which was their original purpose. Hidden away but well worth exploring. It's best to take a torch as the main bunker has lots of steps and the light can be limited. Watch out for bats!

We had read about the tunnels on the Crete forum, so in 2018 we decided to pay a visit. I made a few notes on how to find them, and armed with four fully charged mobile phones to use as torches we headed off. A thread on how to get to them is here: https://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/ShowTopic-g189413-i424-k12656282-German_tunnels_near_Kokkino_Chorio-Crete.html We went through the archway behind the church and into the complex. There are a couple of side 'rooms', then some steps going up. When you get up the first few steps you are on another level with more areas cut into the rock. It's pitch black here. Then its up again and you can finally see light as you get to the reinforced concrete emplacement. Standing outside this you can see all over the bay of Souda, its brilliant. Our friend decided she didnt want to go back down through the tunnels so she walked down onto the road which runs through the complex and said she'd meet us back at the bikes. The rest of us went back through and found some more steps which led out onto the back of the bunker, in some trees, surrounded by small plots of land with olive trees and goat pens. We had a quick shufty round there, then went back through the tunnel complex to where we had left the motorbikes. But where was Julie? We heard a little whimper and looked up to see her the other side of a chain link fence. She couldn't get out of the complex! The gate to the complex was operated by a key or a card, and no-one had been in or out while she was there. We examined the length of the fence and found a join by the church which was only tied together, so we managed to open it there, squeeze her through, and fix it back. So if you do visit, don't be tempted to walk through the villa complex to get back to the church! We really enjoyed ourselves, and will take other friends and family there in the future.

Unfortunately the only entrance to the bunker is from the cliff entrance by the church. The owners of the villa directly in front of the lookout clearly don’t want people accessing the lookout as they have fenced off the drive up. Went in the cave at the bottom but very dark without a torch and looked like someone was using it to sleep rough as there was a bed and chairs in their. Little bit unnerving. It’s a shame as would have been really interesting
