Sunsets are the absolute best reason to visit Santorini. One of my favourite places on the island is Oia village, that's where the best hotels and restaurants are and usually where most of the tourists congregate to spend their time and to watch the sunsets. The sunsets in Santorini are so beautiful that some people will even clap because it truly feels like the sun is giving you a special performance. Enjoy

Beaches in Santorini Near a Taverna?

I know that the beach scene in Santorini is very different than the rest of Greece because of how the beaches are situated.

Do you know if any of these beaches have facilities, or maybe a nearby taverna? I am trying to plan my trip. The sand colors on Santorini beaches are unique and I feel I want to have a few beach days while I am on the island.

You should try the food while in Santorini!

I recently spent some time in Santorini and my one takeaway is that the food there is fantastic, especially the tomatoes. But everything is delicious.

I have been trying to replicate a dish - "domatakeftedes" - since I enjoyed them on the island I've been wanting to make them. Does anyone know what to do?

I think the ingredients are something like this:

- Ripe tomatoes (maybe grated)
- Feta cheese - crumbled
- Chopped Fresh Herbs - parsley, mint, maybe oregano?
- Flour or bread crumbs
- Egg? (recipes I have found online - some say to use egg some leave it out)
- Oil for frying

What do you guys think?

Is there anyplace out of the way in Santorini?

Santorini is inundated with tourists but I am wondering if there is anywhere on the island that may not be as busy but is still nice to visit. Or, that is maybe close to the busy areas but not too close. I love Santorini, and my family has never been. I want them to see it, but I don't want it to be stressful.

I am wondering if I should just forget it. I have heard stories about how expensive and busy it is in the summers.

Here is a glimpse of Megalochori village in Santorini

Megalochori is one of Santorini's most beautiful villages! You can't visit the island without walking around and seeing the sights. When visiting, be careful of the residents who are staying there. Santorini has had a problem with people walking on the buildings and making too much noise. Yes it is a very touristy place but there are many residents that still live there. Enjoy!


Did you know that Santorini has an industrial tomato museum?

Santorini had a huge production of tomatoes, which was so big that they even have an industrial tomato museum that is open to the public. Santorini no longer exports as much tomato paste as it used to, I'm assuming because it became one of the most popular tourist hot spots in the entire world. The museum is located in the former D. Nomikos Tomato Factory, and I really suggest that you check it out!! Safe travels :)
