Why should you visit the island for winter vacation in Santorini?

You can enjoy the sunset and take a photo without at least 3 tourists in the frame
The island as we said is famous for its sunset. So where you want to enjoy it cuddling with the other half and you have taken your place early, and slowly people appear out of nowhere. So you end up being surrounded, or climbing roofs to enjoy a sunset. In Santorini in winter, however, you will enjoy it without distractions. And even if they arise you can just move to the ample space next door.
You can stay in hotel for half the money!
Prices really have nothing to do with it. In discussions with many friends we end up with how expensive the island is (in summer) and if you want a room with even a little view of the well-known parts of the island you will pay a lot. In winter things are different. You can find the suite you dream of at half price, or even at one third of the price!
You will enjoy traditional food and fresh fish without going bankrupt
As we said above, everything is much cheaper in winter since it is low season and the demand is not the same as in summer. Santorini in winter is therefore suitable for fresh fish, fava with capers, tomato meatballs and caramelized onions and plenty of Santorini wine.
You will find a table in any tavern – restaurant and enjoy better service
One of the most annoying things when you are on vacation is that you have to do a whole tour to find a place to eat. However, in Santorini in winter there is no such problem. Of course, not all stores are open, but you still have great options! Of course, not every restaurant will be open during the winter, as the bigger ones tend to close for the winter, but you will find even better small restaurants and taverns, run by local people.
It is easier to experience the Greek hospitality when you are alone on the island during winter.
You will enjoy the “Red Beach” alone

If you succeed on a sunny day, relax and have a picnic with your loved ones, gazing at the red rocks. You can not swim (unless you are a courageous winter swimmer), but between us you do not go to Santorini for its beaches.
You and your map will explore the archeological site of Akrotiri without being disturbed
A very interesting archeological site that takes you back to the 16th century BC. You can clearly see the houses and even jars since then. Note that they even had a sewer system. You do not say it a little so many years ago. In Santorini in winter you have the opportunity to enjoy and learn the history of this place in a completely peaceful and quiet landscape.
You will walk without obstacles at the straits of Oia and the Caldera
These graphic white straights really steal your heart. So think of walking alone, gazing at the view that emerges at every turn and relaxing. Do the same thought now with the other 30 people in front of you, barking to shout to enter the tavern on the right and you to try to relax. You can;
We wish that you will take the step and go on winter vacation in Santorini as you will not regret it. It is a unique ezperience that you will never forget!
