Why Visit Santorini in Autumn?

Santorini in Autumn

Santorini in Autumn

Autumn is a well-loved season all over the world, and it’s especially beautiful in Santorini. The Caldera is as grand as ever, especially as the autumn sun sets and moon rises over the island… 

Reasons to Visit Santorini in Autumn:

Less Crowded

Santorini can be rather crowded during the summer because it’s such a desirable place to stay. You’ll have a little more space when visiting popular tourist spots like Oia Castle.

Everything is Still Open

Restaurants and tourist attractions open as early as April and stay open through October, November or all year round. You can do almost everything you would do in the summer in Santorini in the fall!

The Weather is Still Warm

Fall is a beautiful time of year. The temperatures are still warm in Santorini, and the weather is comfortable and breezy!

Things to Do In Santorini in Autumn

Watch the sunset. 

Fortunately, in autumn, there are fewer crowds, and therefore more elbow room while you enjoy the sunset. After all it’s widely believed that the most beautiful sunset in the world can be found in Santorini! 

Visit Read Beach.

Red Beach is known for its tall red cliffs and deep red sand. The red hues make the blue of the water stand out brilliantly. In autumn, it’s just cool enough for Red Beach to be enjoyable without being too cool for the beach at all. 

Do hiking. 

During autumn, the weather is more suitable for hiking. There are all kinds of hiking trails, from smooth walking paths to rugged climbs. Trek to the top of Mesa Vouno to explore the ancient city of Thira or hike to the archaeological site of Akrotiri. Take the leisurely walking tour to Fira from Oia, Santorini, the two main villages in Santorini.

Book a wine tour. 

There are plenty of options, whether exploring the wine caves or vineyards or enjoying a sip of Assyrtiko aboard a boat cruise while you watch the sun set. The volcanic soil of Santorini breeds a unique type of grape that only grows in Santorini, and thus here you can find wines that can’t be made anywhere else.
