To see the best of what Santorini has to offer relatively quickly, tackle Ekklisia Theoskepasti hiking trail. Hundreds of people hike the 9 km (5.5 mi) long trail every day, stopping along the way to discover the island's picturesque beaches, small villages, and ancient churches. The scenic trail covers a variety of terrains, including some rocky and steep pathways for which you should bring a pair of comfortable hiking shoes. The best time to start the hike is just after sunrise or late in the afternoon, during the coolest parts of the day. Wear a wide-brimmed hat, and bring lots of drinking water and a light snack.

  • A Santorini must do! We completed the hike in around 2 1/2 hours including plenty of stops and photo taking and with an 11 year old in tow. The views were incredible. We only started the walk at 5pm and made it to Oia for a swim and go watch the sunset. I would definitely recommend taking some snacks, LOTS of water and to wear closed in shoes. Some of the path is rather slippery, so watch where you step. If you would like to swim Once you make it to Oia, Go down the stairs … a lot of stairs! All the way to the bottom Go left and walk all the way through the restaurants and just keeping going Climb over the rocks and it will take you to a nice little area to swim. There is a huge rock/island you can swim to and a platform you can jump off. Just be careful as you enter the water though, some of the rocks are rather sharp. If you go around sunset, walk back around towards the restaurants and watch it from there It truly is beautiful. Once you are done, just make your way to the bus stop and catch the bus back which takes around 30minutes. (Bus comes every 30minutes)
  • The view from here is amazing. You can see Fira in one direction. Oia in another direction. Thirissia infront if you. The caldera can be seen in all its glory. Cruise ships can be seen in the bay opposite Fira. Beautiful location! Highly recommend visiting when in Santorini.
