There is much to see and do on the island and please do not be like most cruise visitors and just hang around the shops of Fira and Oia.

The map gives you an insight to the island, the shape of the calder, the old port of Fira, the Ferry Terminal known as Athinios Port, the best beach areas of Perissa and the upmarket Kamari located just around the headland in a very sheltered section of the island.

We visited Mount Profitis the highest point on the island as we drove from Perissa to Kamari. The view from Mount Profitis covers the whole island and is well worth visiting.

With our hire car we easily covered the island in a day including morning coffee at Perissa Beach, lunch at Kamari overlooking the beach, a stop at Akrotiri, a half hour at Athinios Port and then to Oia for afternoon refreshments and some shopping.

Plan you day before you arrive, keeping in mind that plans can be broken and you should have a wonderful time.
