The island is strikingly beautiful, with incredible views of the caldera from pretty much anywhere you are on the island. We stayed at a little hotel in Imerovigli which sits roughly in-between Oia and Thira and was the perfect base from which to explore. We spent our days exploring the Island on quads, enjoying fresh fish dinners at Amoudi bay and local Gyros at a little walk in place called Lucky’s. If you ever find yourself in Fira you have to visit! We had the most memorable souvlaki we’ve ever had which we still get cravings for.
An evening at the Grace Hotel cocktail bar, brings back beautiful memories and is another must visit, the views are pretty spectacular. And if you fancy viewing the island from another perspective you should check out one of the islands yachting clubs. They offer morning, afternoon or sunset cruises and provide BBQ food and alcohol on board, all included in the price.
