9. Walk the Steps From Oia to Amoudi Bay
The tiny port of Amoudi Bay is located a whopping 300 steps below the town of Oia. The descent will be slightly challenging, but you will be rewarded with breathtaking views along the way and quaint tavernas for refueling at the bottom. You can also make a popular pit stop at 39 Steps cafe for a frappe, water or Donkey beer, you’ll need it.
10. Eat a Santorini Salad
No doubt while in Greece you will eat plenty of traditional Greek food including salads, but while in Santorini indulge in a delicious Santorini salad. This salad is a version of a Greek salad that uses the ingredients that Santorini is known for: capers, sundried tomatoes and cucumbers. You can find a delicious one at Salt & Pepper in Fira.

11. Swim at a Santorini’s beach
My favorite beach on Santorini is Kamari. It’s a great place to swim, many places to rent beach chairs, and lots of places to eat. It’s a great place to hang out and relax.
Santorini is not known for its beaches. They are good but not great – so don’t be expecting those idyllic stretches of sand you’ve seen in pictures of Greece. (That said, many people love the beaches of Santorini and find their unique sand and natural setting to be more memorable than “just another sandy beach”.)
Most of Santorini’s beaches are composed of dark volcanic sand that gets searingly hot in the mid-day sun. Beach sandals or water shoes are recommended for getting around on the sand.
But what the beaches lack in typical sandy splendor they make up for with breathtaking views and scenery. The cliffs that loom around some of the beaches and the nature of the sand itself make a surreal setting for swimming and sunning.
Perhaps it’s just in my head but I find the sea water around Santorini the most clear and refreshing I’ve ever swam in. It’s really wonderful.
12. Eat Seafood at Amoudi Bay
Head down the steps from Oia to Amoudi Bay to one of the waterfront taverns. Here, you can feast on some of the freshest seafood imaginable- you can basically watch the fisherman catching your meal!
