I have had it with this global heat!! I can't stand sweating and being so sticky, so Im looking to vacation in a place that's breezy and windy, and I'm hoping that Santorini is a bit cooler than other areas in Greece. Is this true? Or should I be looking elsewhere

Santorini can get pretty windy, but I wouldn't say its windy all the time. Expect a cool breeze in the evening by the water though, that is very typical

Andros, Tinos and Kefalonia tend to be the most windy islands.
On every island you will always have some wind. Sometimes it's more and sometimes less windy.
Yesterday (Friday) on Ios there was really no wind at all. On Monday it was very windy. So it changes.

That has been my experience as well, its pretty unpredictable

Santorini can be pretty windy but it depends on the time of year. I went in May one year, and they had an interesting wind that was bringing desert sand to Santorini, and then someone told me that they often have to repaint the buildings after it's over.
 

The truth about costs in Santorini

What do you recommend for a three day trip to Santorini?

I'm thinking of only visiting Santorini for three days. My friends are a big history lovers and they want to spend most of our trip to Greece in Athens. But I convinced them that there's no way we're visiting Greece without visiting Santorini. So we decided on just three days, what are the must see things to do on the island? Any advice is much appreciated.

Has anyone taken a cruise to Santorini?

I've always considered whether it's a good idea to take a cruise around the islands, or just visit them myself. Has anyone taken a cruise around Santorini and the neighbouring islands? I don't know the pros and cons and whether it's a good value. I'm looking for someone with personal experience who can share a bit about their trip. If you have any specific companies that would also be great. Thank you in advance.

Have you ever heard of Santorini tomato fritters?

I had never heard of this until I stumbled upon this article. It sounds a bit strange but it's something that I'd love to try making, anything that from is from the island of Santorini sounds tasty to me. This is also a really good recipe for anyone who is fasting, or for anyone who is avoiding meat. I personally am a big fan of tomatoes and I will definitely be trying these out soon. What does everyone think?
