  • With aspirated tour guide talked about the black sand on the beach and fantastic sea views. The sea as the sea) Even colder than Crete, or so it seemed after the heat. Sand is far from black and a little similar to sand. In turn, the changing booth in the shower too. The terrain is not inspired. But it was nice to spend an hour or so at the beach after the conditioned air bus.

Where to stay in Oia

Oia boasts arguably the most unusual lodgings in the Cyclades, offering rooms in cave-like houses carved into Santorini's dramatic cliff faces. Converted into boutique hotels, these dwellings provide airy rooms with good natural ventilation, allowing them to remain cool throughout the island's hot summers. The western side of Oia offers the best sunset views, but you must book months in advance to stay there. The less crowded eastern side offers comfortable lodgings in reasonably priced apartments with private balconies and free Wi-Fi.
