      IMPORTANT read about RED BEACH!

      Santorini Island Yesterday

      IMPIS (Institute for the Study and Monitoring of Santorini Volcano) has sent a letter to the members of the Hotel Association Santorini. They want to draw everyone's attention of the status of Red Beach in Akrotiri:

      "We would like to inform you and ask you to inform clients of this situation, and that access to the beach is extremely dangerous due to landslides, to avoid any accident with incalculable consequences for the island" They ask the members of the Hotel Association to contact the authorities and to take the nessesary steps to protect visitors from the enormous consequences that will occur in an accident due to a possible landslide.

      The authorities have put up signs at the red beach but tourists does not respect these and still walk down. Very soon they will need to put a fence!

    • Hotels etc. in Naxos?

      Naxos - Chora (town of) Jun 10, 2015 at 12:53 PM

      We will be in Naxos for five nights as part of our trip to Greece in September, and we have decided this might be a place to splurge on our hotel. We have booked most all of our other accommodations, and I know I can look at all kinds of hotel sites, but I'd really like a recommendation for a small hotel or B&B (I know they don't call them that in Greece, but can't think of the term right now) locally owned, that has rooms with patios with a view of the ocean. Anywhere between 100 and 150 euros would probably be our price range, and we're more interested in view, nice and helpful hosts, and not too many stairs, than in any fancy large place.

      We would also like the same type of recommendation for Koufonisia if anyone has been there. I understand we can go there without reservations and find a place spontaneously, but I'd like to have some recommendations as a starting point.

      Thanks for any help you can give.

      Restaurant with a view: where is seagul?

      by sweet_sentiments Online Now Aug 3, 2013 at 6:04 PM

      Hi,

      We're looking for a restaurant with a view to have lunch and Seagul looks like an interesting option problem is I can't find the address or how to get there. I'm just wondering if someone can give us a direction how to get there.

      If you have other restaurant suggestion we would really love to hear it. We just want a resto with a view.

      Thanks in advance!

      Need help deciding hotel in Oia

      by anubanerjee Online Now Jan 2, 2011 at 12:25 AM

      I am visiting Greece for a vacation with my husband for our wedding anniversary. We will be spending 3 nights in Santorini in 2nd week of May. My folks are also joining us. So we would need 2 rooms and look at options where my folks won’t have to walk or hike too much to get to their room.

      Post a lot of research we have liked Angel Cave house and Marizan Cave. Unable to decide which one to choose.

      Here’s what we would like in a Hotel:

      • Nice rooms- not too luxurious but nice, clean, comfortable rooms with great views

      • Would like a place where we can gaze at the sunset from our room

      • Looking at a budget of 100 to 130 euros per night

      • A decent breakfast not just a loaf of bread and coffee

      • A free car park and luggage carried to room

      • Most important a gorgeous view and a typical santorini- oia- experience

      Pls feel free to suggest other properties, if my choices aren't very wise. Your inputs will matter and help a lot.

      Thanks

      How much time should I spend in Santorini, Greece?? How to get there?

      by emilybacon Online Now Apr 12, 2006 at 10:54 AM

      I am going to Italy and Greece in May. I am travelling by myself. I have booked my airplane ticket, but nothing else! I am going for 16 days, and have not yet decided where/how I will divide my time.

      What I am sure of is that I want to go to Santorini. Here are my 2 questions:

      1. How many days should I spend there? I enjoy nightlife, eating out, sightseeing, lounging by the pool at my hotel. Is 3 days enough? Should I stay for 5-6? Is there enough to do on the island that I won't be bored if I stay for 5-6 days?

      2. How do I get there from either Rome, or Athens? Is it better to take a plane, or a boat? And I don't speak the language. If I do take a boat, will it be confusing?

      Place to stay in Oia - May / June 05

      by sinter Online Now Feb 6, 2005 at 2:44 AM

      My wife and I are staying on Santarini from the end of May to early June. We have locked in Oia as the area to stay. We have also narrowed down to 3 places to stay - 1. Nikos Villas 2. Canava II 3. Perivolas (this is the one we both like the look of the most)$$ not a real factor, as anything in Oia is$$ Has anyone stayed at either of these places ? Any comments / feedback would be appreciated. Regards, Geoff

      Getting to Santorini

      by clmetal Online Now Feb 21, 2004 at 12:48 PM

      I got invited to a wedding in June and I would have to pay for 5 plane tickets. Flights from the US to Santorini seem outrageous, and very expensive to Athens as well. I know easyjet from London is cheap, then again that will be 2 planes for me and a long cruise. Does anyone else know of affordable options thanks
