Santorini is a small island located North of Crete, West of Turkey, and Southeast from mainland Greece. It is part of the huge archipelago of Greek islands on the Mediterranean sea that makes up the group of islands known as the Cyclades.
Yes, although Santorini is its own island hundreds of kilometers away from the Greek mainland, it is part of Greece and under the same government
The quickest and easiest way to get between Athens, which resides towards the South of the Greek mainland, and Santorini, which is an island deep in the heart of the Mediterranean Sea, is via plane. Flights between the two are frequent, and take up to an hour. It is also possible to catch a ferry between the two, with high-speed ferries available that offer a reduced journey time of around 4 hours. However, a typical crossing between the two destinations takes an average of 7 hours, with the journey time even taking up to 10 hours on a slower-moving ferry.
In terms of distance, Mykonos and Santorini are around 150 kilometers away from each other, with Mykonos sitting further North, closer to the Greek mainland. If you were to catch a flight between the two, it would take around one hour and forty five minutes. It is also possible to catch a ferry between them, mainly in the summer months, with a journey time of between two and three hours.
Ios is one of Santorini’s closest neighbors, with Ios sitting directly North. There are approximately 45 kilometers between the main port of Santorini and Chora. On a high-speed ferry, the crossing can take as little as twenty five minutes, and on a typical ferry, it takes around an hour and a half to get between the two.
The best way to get around Santorini is by car or on foot. Santorini is a very small and compact island, so you may find that for the most part, the destinations you want to visit may actually be within walking distance. If you’d like to use a car, however, you can hire one for the entirety of your trip to offer the maximum flexibility for your vacation, or you could use the local taxis. There are buses available between towns, so you have a whole variety of methods of getting around Santorini at your disposal.
Santorini is a very small Greek island, clocking in with only 76.19 square kilometers to boast of. In fact, you could drive from one end of Santorini to the other, and then back again, in around an hour and a half. The island only has 10,000 inhabitants. For comparison, the state with the lowest population, Wyoming, still has more than 57x the amount of people living there.
As Santorini is such a small island, it is perfectly reasonable to suggest that you can get a quick overview of what it has to offer in as little as a few days, and it is certainly worth a day trip if you are staying on a nearby island. However, Santorini is an absolute gem, and is best enjoyed when you can absolutely immerse yourself in the culture and charm with a stay of at least a week.
