The Best Time to Visit Santorini

By far, the best time to travel to Santorini is during shoulder season. That is from April to June and from September to October. During that time the temperatures are milder and it’s not super crowded. High season, during the months of July and August, is when, so you can expect higher prices and bigger crowds.

From November to March, you will find very few people around as well as the cheapest deals. However, do keep in mind that some businesses will be closed during low season. And it is definitely too cold for swimming! From March on, things start to warm up, though.
