We spent 3 days in Santorini, and I wish we would have spent less time there. Too many people for me and quite expensive. I didn’t feel like I was getting the real essence of Greece. In front of our place overlooking the caldera there were people getting their photo taken 24/7.
For Santorini, I enjoyed visiting the ancient Thera site - not much to see by way of ruins but fantastic views. Personally I found sunset in Oia to be overhyped - I’d recommend watching the sunset from Imerovigli or Pyrgos as other options. Akrotiri lighthouse also provides another interesting view. Also loved Megalochori - beautiful little town and also has a view of the caldera. The rock formations in Vlichada Beach are spectacular too. I did the walk from Oia to Fira and it was great. Same a cruise around Santorini, had a lot of fun. So nice seeing the caldera and island from the water.
Santorini was one of my very favourite destinations! The views, the food, the people and the beaches. We spent most of our time in Santorini and one full day in Athens. My daughter and I felt very safe.
Santorini is the most overrated Greek island in my opinion. Very, very expensive and no real soul or Greek island ‘vibe’. Yes, the sunset is amazing, but the crowds spoil it I feel. Every island has its own personality. I prefer the smaller, less crowded islands where you actually get to know the locals.
Things to do: - Wander the Streets of Oia - Hike Skaros Rock - Discover Megalochori - Relax at Amoudi Bay - Spot the chapels in Fira - Visit Pyrgos - Rent an ATV and cruise the island Safety: I felt very safe. Accommodation: Stayed at the Caveland hostel. Best and most beautiful place I have ever stayed in.
Itinerary: Day 1: Fira Day 2: Oia Day 3: Imerovigli Safety: I felt pretty safe, just take normal precautions as everywhere. Accommodation: Stayed at Caveland, It was very clean and the staff were very friendly. Would highly recommend. Recommendations: Fira is easily walkable with plenty of cute shops and delicious food.
Itinerary: Day 1: Admire the view from Fira Day 2: Caldera sunset sailing tour Day 3: Hike from Fira to Oia Day 4: Perissa black sand beach Day 5: Akrotiri ancient ruins and Red beach Safety: I felt totally safe and comfortable. I met a lot of other solo female travelers in hostels, so I didn’t end up spending that much time on my own. Accommodation: I absolutely loved my stay at Caveland hostel. So accessible to everything on the island, and the staff was so nice. Great place too meet cool people from all over. Recommendations: Go to Oia at sunrise. You will still get all the beauty of the city, but you can avoid the crowds.
Itinerary: Day 1: Imerovigli Day 2: Oia Day 3: Fira Day 4: Perissa Beach Safety: I felt supper safe. Accommodation: Stayed at Fira backpackers hostel. Great location, just 5 minute walk from bus station and 5 minute walk into center. Recommendations: I've been a lot of places and the sights from Santorini are still hard to beat. Highly recommend.
Itinerary: Day 1: Fira to Oia hike Day 2: Visit the villages and sights of Santorini Day 3: Cruise trip to the volcano, hot springs and Thirassia Day 4: Visit Oia early in the morning to take pictures without the crowds Safety: No issue with safety. It's a very safe and very popular tourist destination. Accommodation: I stayed at the Fira Backpackers hostel and had the best time. Great staff, great location and full of backpackers. Recommendations: Santorini is very much filled with tourists, but the island is simply gorgeous. If you want to explore it on your own rent an ATV.
