When to go
The high season is April through to October, but if you can find a hotel out of season you’ll see the real Greece. Our reviewer travelled there in the second week of October and described it as ‘quiet, but busy enough to give the restaurants a good buzz'.
PlanesThe airport is only 10 minutes from Fira | the island’s capital. As of Summer 2009 Easyjet will fly direct from Gatwick. Taxis cost around six euros.
TrainsThere are no train services on the island. If you arrive by ferry, it will take you 15–20 minutes to get to Fira from the port. You’ll find car hire companies and taxis when you get off the boat.
AutomobilesYou’ll need a car to tour around the island. There’s free parking outside the towns of Oia and Thira. There are also various places where you can rent scooters. There are car hire desks at the airport.
