This beautiful island has few beautiful villages which you have to see when you decide to visit this amazing island which you can cross from one side to other in about hour and a half by car 🙂
As this is my third time in Santorini, I already know this island as my pocket its time for me to write my Santorini guide.
I will share you my biggest excitements and places on the island but also some tips what to follow and what to avoid.
You guys just have to visit this magical island, and I hope this guide will help you to have a great time like I always have here.

Ovaj prekrasni otok ima par mjesta koja definitivno morate otići vidjeti kada odlučite posjetiti ovaj zaista čudesni otok koji možete prijeći od najvišlje do najniže točke u samo sat i pol vožnje autom 🙂
Kako je ovo već moj treći put na Santoriniju i poznajem ga kao svoj džep 🙂 mislim kako je napokon vrijeme za napisati jedan kratki vodič koji će nadam se pomoći svima vama koji ćete po prvi puta ići tamo. Podjelit ću s vama sve najdraže momente i pokoji savjet kojeg se trebate držati kao što biste trebali izbjegavati.
Definitivno vam preporučam ako ikada budete u mogućnosti morate posjetiti ovaj magični otok!

WHEN TO GO!?

I would always go end of April / beginning of May. It’s great weather around 20 Celsius which is perfect weather for walking and exploring the island. Most of the hotels have a pool, even it won’t be ideal for swimming some of them have private pools and hot tubes which have warm water, so it’s great even then. For me, that’s the best time because it’s still not that crowded, just two days in a week when cruises are coming. I would not recommend going in the middle of the season because its way more expensive, the island is just too crowded and walking streets are too tight. I also heard that middle/end of September could be nice also.

KADA IĆI!?

Ja bih uvijek najrađe išla upravo u ovo vrijeme u koje sam uvijek tamo, poslje Uskrsa krajem travnja / početkom svibnja. Prekrasno je pravo proljetno vrijeme, oko 20 stupnjeva, što je po meni idealno za šetanje i istraživanje otoka. Većina hotela ima bazene i iako tada nije za kupanje neki od njih imaju privatne bazene ili jacuzzije sa grijanom vodom tako da je ipak izvedivo. Za mene je to najbolje vrijeme jer tada još nema prevelike gužve osim naravno 2-3 dana kada dođu kruzeri onda je ludnica 🙂 To je predsezona.
Ja iskreno ne bih preporučila ići u sezoni jer je puuuunooo skuplje i prenapučeno je ljudima, tako mali otok to jako teško podnosi. Ceste su zakrčene a uličice kojima se hoda po liticama su toliko uske da se nekada naprave čepovi u gradu i krajem 4. mjeseca ( npr. nakon zalaska sunca u Oi kada svi u isto vrijeme krenu nazad na buseve ). Ne želim uopće zamišljati kako je to u 7. mjesecu npr.

HOW TO GET THERE!?

Have I told you that I took my mom this time for a trip? It was such a great experience for her and me 🙂 Last year I was there with my boyfriend and my first time on Santorini was on a cruise.
These are all different experiences, and it depends on you personal appetites.
Just have in mind if you are coming with a cruise you will have the most wonderful view from the cruise to the island but you will only have a half day to explore the island, and that’s not gonna be enough. You will run around and admire everything and then you will realize you HAVE TO COME BACK!! Like me 🙂
This last two times we go by car to Vienna and fly from there directly to Santorini and tickets are excellent prices in the preseason.

KAKO DOĆI DO TAMO!?

Jesam li vam već rekla da sam ovoga puta vodila mamu sa sobom na put!? Bilo je to stvarno super iskustvo za nas dvije! Prošle godine bila sam sa dečkom a prvi puta na Santoriniju došla sam kruzom.
Sve su to različita iskustva i sve ovisi što više preferirate. No, morate biti svjesni, iako ćete sa kruza imati najljepši pogled na te famozne “snježne” litice, ipak ćete imati samo pola dana za istražiti otok, što nikako nije dovoljno. Jurcat ćete okolo u nadi da što više to ga vidite, diviti se svemu i shvatiti da se jednostavno MORATE VRATITI! Baš poput mene 🙂
Sljedeća dva puta išli smo autom do Beča i od tamo direktno letjeli za Santorini i to su cijene karata vrlo povoljne za pred sezonu.

WHERE TO STAY!?

It’s just what you prefer more. Either you will stay in Fira, Imerovigli, Oia on the high “white houses” part with the most fantastic view on caldera and volcanic island ( which I definitely prefer more ). Or you will choose to stay on the opposite side of the island by the black beach, which is maybe more continuous during the summer.
Imerovigli and Oia are the most expensive, in Fira you can find both but in Kamari, it’s probably cheapest, especially during preseason I think in season everything everywhere is expensive.
_____________________

GDJE ODSJESTI!?

Pitanje je samo što više preferirate. Ili ćete odsjesti u Firi, Imerovigliju, Oiji na najvišljem dijelu otoka na liticama sa popularnim bijelim kućicama, jednim od najljepših pogleda na svijetu prema vulkanskom otoku ( što ja osobno preferiram ). Ili ćete odsjesti na suprotnoj strani otoka pored crne plaže, što je možda i prihvatljivije tijekom ljeta.
Imerovigli i Oia su najskuplji, u Firi možete naći svega a na plaži u Kamariju i Parisi je vjerojatno najjeftinije. Naravno tu govorim od pred sezoni, u sezoni je svugdje sve puunoo skuplje.

OBAVEZNO NAPRAVITI i IZBJEGAVATI:

OBAVEZNO NAPRAVITI:

– doći na Santorini kruzom, zaljubiti se u njega i nikada ne prestati vraćati ovdje! Ili doći već bilo kako, samo DOĆI!! 🙂
– Posjetiti Oiju za vrijeme zalaska sunca
– napraviti šetnju od Fire do Imeroviglija – neizostavno!
– spustiti se niz 600 stepenica u Firi do luke kako biste mogli doživjeti te serpentine

IZBJEGAVATI:

– jahanje na magarcima! Iako sam ja na žalost prve godine jesam, žičara nije radila i tada je to bio hit ali posljednjih godina šalje se apel svima da to nije u redu i turisti stvarno izbjegavaju.
– uhvatiti prvi bus nakon zalaska sunca u Oiji. Teško, svi krenu i nastane čep u tim uskim uličicama, bolje još malo ostanite i idite na sljedeći
– skakati po krovovima! Kao ja hahaha ali ja sam morala zbog dobre slike, nama blogerima se oprosti 🙂
