Santorini in late September

My boyfriend and I are visiting Greece in late September/early October, flying to and from Athens. We will be in Greece for 10 days overall and allowing for a couple of days in Athens at the end of the trip, we will have about a week to visit an island (the last week of September and perhaps a day or two in to October).

Originally we were planning to stay around the Saronic islands so as not to waste time on ferries. However, the more I research it it seems that the Saronic islands are more like an extension of Athens and perhaps we would be better going further afield and staying in one place for the week, Santorini, Paros and Naxos are all options within a few hours of Athensr.

My question really is where will still be somewhat lively this late in the season? I know everything will be winding down at this stage - we are in our late 20's and not looking for partying but it would be nice if there were still some busy restaurants and tavernas for some atmosphere.

It's true that at this late stage of the season, many places will be winding down, if not closed already, especially the beach resorts of Perissa and Kamari.

However, if you look at Fira, the main town on Santorini, you'll find still plenty to do in late September. Also, look at Oia, the most beautiful village on the island where there'll still be a lot of places open.

Weather-wise, although it's still very likely to be warm and sunny, it's probably a good idea to take a couple of warmer items, especially if you end up in Fira or Oia as they're cliff top villages and can get windy and a bit chilly the later into the year you get. Winds and rain are more likely too at this time of year, but by no means guaranteed, you may be lucky and catch a late heat wave.
