Santorini Airport - some information at a glance

Although the Airport Santorini is approached by almost 50 airlines, it is quite clear with only one terminal. However, you do not have to do without anything here, as you will find exchange offices, cafes and duty-free stores, so that you can easily bridge the time until your departure.

Car hire at Santorini Airport: Mobile with the hired car

Breathtaking cliffs, tranquil sandy beaches and deep blue waters, all this awaits you after your arrival on Thira, the largest island of the Santorini archipelago. Since the only 92.5 square kilometres large island archipelago, which actually consists of the islands Thira, Thirasia, Nea Kameni, Palea Kameni, Aspronisi, Agios Nikolaos and Kimina, but has much more to offer than you might think at first glance, it is well worth it to go on a journey of discovery with your hired car.

The North

Why not head north with your hired car and drive to Katharos Beach and visit the Byzantine castle ruins and church in Oia, take a look at the museum or take a day trip to the south of the island with its fantastic White Beach and the contrasting Red Beach, two breathtaking stretches of beach that you should definitely have seen. Don't miss a trip to Kamari Beach.

THE INTERIOR OF THE ISLAND

If, on the other hand, you just want to take a short break from the sweet idleness of the beach, you can take your hired car for a drive towards the center of the island and should definitely make a worthwhile diversion to the lighthouse, the windmills at Emporio or enjoy the view over the entire island from the monastery in Profitis Ilias. An absolute must is a trip to the ruins of Thira near Kamari, but it is best to leave early in the morning, otherwise it will be too hot at lunchtime.

Our tip: Parking spaces are scarce, especially in smaller villages, so it can be worthwhile to hire a small car, with which you are guaranteed to find a shady spot.
