What is the best way to get around Santorini? Can I walk? Or do I have to rent a taxi or take the bus?

Really depends what part of Santorini you are staying in. When I was last there I rented a car, drove, parked and then walked around. Hope you have a good trip to Santorini!

Santorini can be walkable, but sometimes walking isn't comfortable. The island isn't quite small enough to be able to walk it. There is a bus. You can also take a taxi. There aren't really many rental cars. I've walked up and down the giant hill at Oia, and that is doable but a little hard.

Santorini is well serviced by its buses. They are cheap and can quickly and easily get you to the beaches and other towns such as Oia. I didn't need to hire a car because the buses could get me where I wanted to go. If you want to roam more freely on the island and go to beaches on the other side and lesser known beaches, then you should probably hire a car, otherwise there's no need really. And I was travelling with a family of 4 and we still all found it convenient to use the buses.

I also really like to use the buses on the island. They run pretty frequently

Stunning Santorini wedding at Le Ciel Santorini

Santorini has become one of the most popular destinations for weddings for so many years now. This wedding is absolutely stunning and the view is what makes it! Le Ciel Santorini is one of the most luxurious hotels on the island, and is located in the northern part (not too far from Oia). It is a common destination for weddings and I highly recommend it for anyone who is interested in getting married in Greece.

The best foods to try while in Santorini

Santorini is a great place for foodies and those seeking to have the best gastronomic and culinary experiences in Greece. Santorini has very unique dishes that you won't find in other areas of Greece and the Cyclades. Some of my favorites are fava, domatokeftedes, kopania, and chloritiri cheese. You may not find all of these at every single restaurant, but it's definitely worth seeking them out while you're here.

You must visit the hot springs in Santorini

The Hot Springs in Santorini are one of the best natural springs that you can go to in Greece. They are heated by the islands volcano that is underneath the ocean, causing the springs to be extremely warm and offer a very relaxing experience. There are two small islands near Santorini in which you can be able to access the Hot Springs. You will need to take a boat to Nea Kameni or Palea Kameni. You will notice that the water is slightly yellow, but this is because it has a higher amount of sulphur than regular seawater, so no need to be alarmed. I hope you enjoy the Hot Springs!

How do I avoid the crowds in Santorini (besides going in the off season)?

I might be asking a very stupid question here… But is there anyway to avoid the tourists in Santorini besides going in the off-season? My husband is a teacher, and we really only get summers off, so there isn't a chance for us to go to Santorini in May or September. If anyone has advice on how to avoid the crowds, and how to travel on the off beaten path, please reply to this thread! Thank you so much!

Akrotiri Lighthouse in Santorini is stunning 😍

Who knew that Santorini had such a beautiful lighthouse! This lighthouse dates back to the late 1800's and was build by a French company. This video gives you a great idea of what the lighthouse looks like and what you can expect from visiting. You are unable to visit the inside of the lighthouse unless you are authorized (navy or official business) but it is beautiful to see from the outside or even from a view from some Santorini cliffs. Has anyone ever been?
