Another Island Iteniary Question!!

Jump to last reply

Hi there, I've looked at some of the discussions here regarding teh Greek Isalnds and there seems to be some posters who are very helpful and knowledgable, so hopefully upi can help me out

My wife and I are going to Greece for the last two weeks in July - not ideal timing but the only time I can get off work.

Our choice of flights is limited so we arrive at around 9.30pm on a Saturday night

I know that you'll want some context - we are in our mid thirties, have done loads of travelling and essentially are looking for a bit of a mix and match of a holiday
We don't want to go to that many islands - did this in Croatia last year and while the islands there are great, we did spend a little bit too much times on ferries etc - I have no interest in spending 7 hours during the day on a ferry for example

Currently we want to go to Santorini - for anyone who knows Croatia we were on Hvar last year and loved it and I get the impression this is the Greek equivalent - I want to spend 5 nights here - we will definitely want to relax when we arrive

Basically my questions are;

Best way to get to Santorini - looking at flights or catamaran

Guesthouses in Santoirini - ideally 10/20 minutes walk from a town and a beach, with a balcony, refrigerator, air con, etc maybe in the €60 - €80 bracket

Other things to do in Santorini - water sports, kayaking, hiking, wine, etc

5 nights on another island - which one? (ideally one which we could may do a day trip to one or two other islands)

If there are any other suggestions just put them out there
