Best time to visit Santorini
Santorini is definitely a summer destination that requires loads of sunlight to be explored. December to March is the off-season because of the poor weather and many establishments choose not to open during this time. May and September is the peak season in Santorini because of the hot and dry weather and you can expect to find many tourists visiting the island in these months.
However, we believe the best time to visit Santorini is actually from April to June or from September to October. Why? The weather is still pretty mild during the pre-and post-season but the prices for food and accommodation do not balloon as much as in the high season and, best of all, fewer crowds!
