Where to Stay in Santorini with Kids

Related: Travel Santorini island with kids

Santorini is one of the most famous islands of Greece and certainly the most photographed. Its unique character (Santorini was formed when a volcano erupted and sank the middle part of the island) attracts thousands of visitors each summer.

Some parts in Santorini are not particularly conducive to children. The town is built on cliffs which means narrow pathways and steep steps everywhere you go. And not all beaches in Santorini are family-friendly.

But children are seen around and welcome, particularly in the summer and there are things to see and to do for kids. I have listed the best activities for families in Santorini in this post: Travel Santorini island with kids.

Should families visit Santorini? Yes. With this guide on where to stay with kids, you will enjoy the island to its best.

Oia: Oia is the most famous village in Santorini, known best for its sunset views. Oia has gorgeous little winding streets with tons of shops, cafes and restaurants, and even a little playground. It is the most exclusive part of Santorini but if you want to enjoy the atmosphere and not move around too much, this is your best bet.

Imerovigli: Imerovigli is probably second best for views, which is still pretty spectacular. There is not much in Imerovigli outside of the line of hotels (and honeymooners) but Fira is a ten-minute drive away.

Fira: Fira is Santorini’s main town and has much more activity than Oia which tends to feel more exclusive. This might be due to the cruise ships that arrive in Fira every day. Still, you can enjoy the beautiful sunset, the great restaurants, and the cable car to the port with the family.
