Nice Beach, very hot because it's black, so you need sandals! If you need a sunbed or parasol, you need to pay for, unless you bring your own. But prices are not expensive if you plan staying the whole day.
This is a MUST see beach. We took the bus from Stepfani and arrived to the most CLEAN amazing beach. It's worth the bus trip, spend the day, have lunch, walk around and stop in the shops, everybody is very friendly
We were staying in Perissa which is much much busier, this end of the beach is much nicer. Weekends can be busy along the whole beach but it adds to the atmosphere. We came to this beach 4 times in total and loved it. The...More
The black beaches go on for a long way. We enjoyed the part of beach called Perivolos because it did not seem as crowded. The water was clear and the waves were just enough to make it fun. Water shoes are a good idea because...More
You can find something within 15 to 30 gbp. Don't get too big a car, get a small economy one: roads are small, you'll never be able to go more than 70 kph. Buses work well if you're on a budget, but you won't be able to get... More
You can find something within 15 to 30 gbp. Don't get too big a car, get a small economy one: roads are small, you'll never be able to go more than 70 kph. Buses work well if you're on a budget, but you won't be able to get to the more remote places. You also have the option of scooter or ATV. It's my 2nd time on the island and I would still only recommend a small car. The sun hits hard, so you need the protection or you will roast, but still roads are small and crowded, better a small car than a bigger one. This recommendation goes for the mid-September period. I can easily see this place be a total mess with summer crowds.
Hi, we're travelling with our 2 young kids (baby and preschooler) to Santorini for 4 days. Is it better to rent a car or is public transportation just as convenient? We don't mind spending the money if having a car makes travellling the island more enjoyable, but if it is a nuisance (parking, road conditions, traffic etc. ) or if taking public transportation is just as convenient, then we'll do that. We're flying in to the island and staying in Perivolos Beach. Any advice is appreciated....More

It depends somewhat on when you plan to be there. Parking is a real hassle from Mid-June until the end of August. The island has an excellent bus system between the villages from the bus hub in Fira, but a car will give you maximum flexibility and the ability to be spontaneous, plus you can go where the buses don't.
Married on Santorini Sept. 2006 - Our Wedding Planner (1 Replies)
Dear Married Couples-To-Be, We've posted several replies to other topics here regarding weddings in santorini and coordinators. However, in order to make this simple, we decided to make one general post about our experience with our destination wedding. First, we are so happy to see that many of you are using Helena from YaSena or have used her services in the past. I think you agree or will agree that she is top notch. We found her through a referral (a friend of a friend who used...More

Dear Alisha and Darren, Thank you - thank you - thank you, for your post. We had emailed several other coordinators and was on the fence with deciding on one of them. But after reading your note, we decided to contact Helena. We booked our wedding on Santorini with her! YAY! Do you mind if we contact you about the experience you had with your wedding? Helena had said that it would be helpful to communicate with former brides regarding our wedding and would help us feel more...More
Cruise day trip travelling to Perivolos and onto Fira (2 Replies)
I arrive on a day trip in August. I was in Santorini last year for a day and loved Perivolos beach. My question is how easy is it to get a taxi from where the cruise tenders drop off in order to travel to Perivolos. Then how easy is it to get a taxi from one of the restaurants in Perivolos to Fira. Can anyone give me an idea of cost of taxis or if the bus service is a good and reliable alternative. Thanks in advance.

There is no vehicle access at the Old Port (Skala). Its walk up 600+ stairs or wait for the cable car - the lines to which can be extremely long, possibly up to 2 or more hours each way, depending on how many ships are docked. Those taking the ships' excursions often have priority disembarking. All this means less time ashore for you. Please don't ride the poor, abused donkeys. What time are you due to dock and depart please? The buses are cheap and reliable, although likely to...More
