But…Where To Stay in Santorini?

Here are some handy tips to have in mind:

  • For being close to all the bars, restaurants, shops, nightclubs and the buzz: Fira (it’s the capital of the island and the town with the most grocery stores, shops and nightclubs)
  • For views to the famous sunset (along with thousands of other tourists on your roof, balcony and walls around sunset time every day in July and August): Oia
  • For equally beautiful sunsets and views to the caldera and the volcano (without thousands of tourists): Imerovigli and Firostefani
  • For being closer to the famous black beach (like 5-mins-walk close…) and the best beach bars of the island: Perissa or Perivolos (no famous caldera and volcano views though)
  • For being closer to the other black beach with lots of restaurants and amenities: Kamari (no famous caldera and volcano views though)
  • For being close to the famous Red Beach but still have views to the caldera: Akrotiri (but it’s a 20-30 mins drive from Fira-capital)
  • For being closer to most of the Santorini wineries (but not worried about the famous volcano/caldera views): Pyrgos
  • For having the best private pools and jacuzzis with caldera views in Santorini: Imerovigli or Firostefani.
  • With kids and lose to the beach with amenities: Kamari
  • With seniors or disabled persons: avoid the famous cliff with volcano views as most of the hotels there have many stairs due to being on the cliff – avoid Fira, Oia, Firostefani, Imerovigli or ask the hotels about the access
