The best time to visit Santorini depends on what you’d like to do during your trip. Temperatures vary dramatically throughout the year from  10-29°C. The main tourist season runs from May until October, with the most popular months being during school holiday periods and July to September. The best time to visit the island is in June/early July and late September.

If you’re planning on spending lots of time exploring  Santorini’s stunning beaches, you should visit from June to September when the weather is a pleasant temperature for some beach time.

Santorini can get very busy during peak season, with the main tourist spots becoming overcrowded. Bus tours from other islands and cruise ships also frequently visit Santorini in peak season, contributing to the main spots’ crowding, especially in Oia and during the spectacular sunsets. 

All of the island’s accommodation can become booked out for peak season, especially in Oia, so make sure you book in advance if you choose to visit in mid-summer. If no accommodation is available in your chosen destination, consider staying in the capital, Fira, where bus routes run all over the island.
