Spring, the carnival of flowers, and the sea

If winter is the dormant period for the entire island of Santorini, then when the spring breeze gets warmer, Santorini will begin to wake up. Flower clusters emerged from the earthen jar outside the window, and the islanders put on light clothes and repainted and repaired the houses that had been invaded by the rain and cold wind in the warm sun, and welcomed the first group of guests with beautiful faces.

March is the end of winter and the beginning of spring in Santorini. The flowers are in bud and the sea breeze is refreshing. Walking among the delicate and soft Mediterranean houses, looking at the place where the sea meets the horizon, it is romantic and refreshing.

The two famous towns on Santorini are Fira and Oia. Oia’s houses are mostly pure white or modern hotels, set off against the blue sea. But in comparison, spring is more suitable to live in Fira, because most of Fira’s houses are colorful, with all kinds of flowers and plants dotted outside the house, which makes the breath of spring more intense.

If you want to come to Santorini in April and you have a long-awaited hotel, it is best to take a look at it in advance, because many hotels on the island only open normally after April 15th.

The water in April is slightly cooler. If you want to swim and spend your summer vacation, try to postpone the month by one month.

Summer, the song of golden waves and the setting sun

In May and June, the summer of Santorini begins. The endless coastline embraces the skyline, the fine sunlight swaying along the sea surface with the waves, the setting sun slowly drooping in the clouds, and the soft twilight rendering the air so sweet.

Oia’s sunset is world-renowned. The sunset time is about 7~8 o’clock. It is recommended to arrive before 6 o’clock because every day there will be hordes of tourists to enjoy this wonderful time. If you go late, you won’t be able to take advantage of it. The terrain can only look at the back of others’ heads.

There are three places to watch the sunset, namely the sunset restaurant, the observation deck, and the yacht out to sea. The yachts are relatively luxurious, but the effect of watching the sunset is very good.

The yacht will travel around the entire island, passing through unique landscapes such as red sand beaches, sea cliffs, rock faults, and volcanic hot springs. It is a very rare travel experience. On the way, you will pass a particularly clear sea where you can snorkel and fish. The fish you catch can be roasted and eaten directly. At around 8 o’clock, the sun began to set, and there was a sunset dedicated bgm on the yacht. Holding a glass of champagne in hand, watching the slowly sinking sunset is an indescribable romance and dream.

There are many tourists during the peak season in Santorini, but there are only a few dozen yachts, so be sure to book in advance.

July and August, enthusiastic islanders, hot weather. “Kalimera, welcome to santorini!” Although it was the sweltering heat, the warm hospitality of the islanders made people feel refreshed. Since July, there have been more and more tourists from Europe and the United States on the island, because their enthusiasm for tanning and sunbathing is unstoppable! If a beautiful girl decides to go to the holy island at this time, she must do a good job of preventing heat and sun protection.

Moreover, in July and August, because of the soaring tourists from Europe and the United States, the price of hotels will also be driven up accordingly. Many Internet celebrity hotels will also be difficult to book, so it is necessary to write and target the reservation in advance!

If shopping accounts for a large proportion of travel plans, it is recommended to come to the Holy Island from the end of June to mid-August, because it is the vigorous discount season, and the whole road is in “big sale”!

In autumn, the wine ripples with the sea waves.

September is the end of summer and the beginning of autumn. The heat is gone, it is neither hot nor cold, and the number of tourists is greatly reduced. It is a good day for swimming.

Autumn begins in October. It is suitable for strolling in the beautiful Aegean Sea with your lover, admiring the interweaving of blue and white, and embracing romantically in the afterglow of the setting sun. There are 3,000 churches in Santorini with a population of 6,000, most of which are blue-roofed churches. Shuttle through the town to find churches, so that every church can witness the splendid love.

The temperature in October is about 13-22 degrees, and the temperature difference between day and night is quite large. You can wear summer clothes during the day, remember to wear a hat, the ultraviolet rays are still very strong, but try to add a coat at night.

November is the authentic holy island autumn. Although it is not suitable for swimming in the sea, tasting wine at the Santorini winery on the island is really pleasant. The Santorini winery is located on the edge of the cliff. Homemade ice wine and spiced bread are very delicious. Sitting on the edge of the cliff, the wine in the glass and the sea waves at the bottom of the cliff are rippling.

In winter, enjoy the holy island flavor in the warm sun

The winter in Greece begins in December, which is the off-season of the holy island. Say goodbye to the bustle of summer and enjoy the cleanliness and leisure of the entire island. The hotel prices are also very affordable. However, some hotels and restaurants do not open during the off-season, so plan carefully.

There will be cold winds in January and February, so be sure to keep warm. There are very few people, and you can’t see a few tourists from a long distance. It’s just an exclusive photo show! The winter sun is warm, bathing in the sun in the afternoon, holding the warm Holy Island coffee in his hand, looking out at the Aegean Sea, watching the sun slowly sinking into the water… warm and cozy.
