Santorini – how many days should you spend exploring?

Busy bodies can take an exciting hike from Fira to Oia and invest in precious mementos from local markets. Beach bums can visit some of the most unique and beautiful shores on Earth. Ask your tour guide for the best spots to visit according to your travelling requirements, and they’ll take care of the rest – especially if you’re a first-timer.

Less is not more in Santorini
The more time you spend on the island, the better. While you can’t stay in Santorini forever (wouldn’t that be amazing?) you can fit the ideal holiday into your specific duration with the help of a tour guide. If you’re doing a round trip and have other destinations to get to, try to extend yourstayin Santorini so that you can experience an ideal, relaxing holiday. The island features active volcanos, a caldera, great food, delectable wines, and so, so much more.

Let’s say you’re visiting Santorini for five days. What will you do? Here’s an idea – day one could include wine tasting at the Santorini Wine Museum, followed by sundowners at the Athenian House. Day two could be an active adventure of hiking 10km from Fira to Oia, and indulging in a seafood feast at one of the local restaurants. Reserve day three for a hike down Fira cliff to Old Port, and a boat tour towards the volcano followed by a relaxing swim in the natural hot springs.

Wake up early on day four to explore the cherry tomato museum and spend the rest of the day basking in the sun and splashing around in the crystal-clear waters. Each beach is unique with either red sand, black sand, or red pebbles. Visit one of the many nightly hangouts and make some new friends while you’re at it. Finally, day five could include a relaxing stroll through one of the Venetian castles, or the monastery of Prophet Elias.

Ultimately, how you spend your time is up to you! Santorini offers enough activities and views to give you an all-in-one relaxing break, regardless of the duration. Our suggestion remains to spend more than one or two days on the island to experience its exotic, rich environment. Make sure you don’t miss the most important parts of
