I think so many people forget that Santorini is such a small island. I would love to stay there forever, but I know that it may not take longer than a few days to check out the whole island. Do you think that nine days is too long to stay there? Do you recommend that I visit another island during those extra few days?

This is a tough question!

It really depends if you want to see other Greek islands or if you want to stay and spend a week or longer in Santorini. Personally, Santorini is my favorite Greek island that I have visited and I could spend weeks there LOL :)

You could spend a lot of time there and not even feel isolated. Even though it is a small island, there is a lot to do! You'll never get bored. Each town or village has its own charm. There are beaches, shopping, museums, and you can easily just spend the day walking and exploring. You won't have trouble filling up 9 days.
 

These are the best beaches near Fira in Santorini

1. Vourvoulos
2.Perissa
3. Vlychada
4. Perivolos
5. Monolithos

Any more that someone would like to add? This picture is of Perissa beach

Best Things to Do & See in Santorini (20+)

Here is information about Santorini and things to do, don't know how many would be practical in winter months

Agios Nikolaos is Santorinis monastery created by women

The monastery is dedicated to Agios Panteleimon, Zoodoxos Pighi and Agios Nikolaos. This monastery is super special because it is created by women which is pretty rare considering usually men are monks and priests, and considered the leaders of the Greek orthodox religion. It was established in 1651 by daughters of the Gizi family. Today the monastery is one of the most important religious sites on the island of Santorini and has many historical icons. I really recommend a visit for anyone who is going to the island.

Santorini visit end of October beginning of November

Two couples are hoping to go to Santorini for our anniversaries. I know the crowds are gone by then but will there be anything open? Restaurant’s etc? Will it be too cold to go swimming? Any information is appreciated. Thank you.
