Winter in Santorini is ideal for people looking for peace and relaxation in a warm climate.
Many are thinking that Santorini is a summer destination.
However, locals are keeping it secret that Santorini is the best destination during winter.
Winter has two important differences from summer:
- there are less people on the island (locals or tourists) and
- the temperature is not very hot but not very cold either.
Activities like hiking, walking or cycling are more pleasant due to the not summer-hot temperatures. Roads are almost empty and it feels safer for outdoor activities.
Visitors can do all the sightseeing of Santorini with less people around. Great opportunity for taking amazing pictures (without 100 people in the background) and experience the romantic feeling of Santorini.
Museums & archaeological sites remain open. So visitors could enjoy a tour better than summer for the same reasons.
