October water temperature on Santorini

Jump to last reply

Hi. I'm planning a trip to Athens and the islands for the late summer/early fall and have a little flexibility with the dates. I noticed that the high/low season cutoff for most hotels is right at Oct. 1, and the price drop is significant in most cases. My question is, will the ocean still retain enough warmth to be tolerable for swimming (I'd say 65 F or so for me) in early Oct.?

Also, any recommendations for lodging? The plethora of available hotels on Santorini is a little daunting. I'm looking for a small place, right on the rim of the caldera, that caters to couples (the trip is my honeymoon, though the "honeymoon suites" at many hotels I've seen are rather out of my price range.)

Thanks muchly for any advice.
