I am planning a 3 night Airbnb stay on Santorini and need recommendations for which part of the island to stay for 1) good access to a beach (or access to sea via ladders etc) and 2) good restaurants.
Thanks a lot for your tips upfront!
The walk to the sea is a bit of a hike, but I would always recommend Oia. It's on the north side at the very tip of the island. Removed from where most of the cruise ships dock in Thira, pedestrian only. We had amazing food every night-whether from a fancy place with views, or just picking up traditional Greek food from any restaurant on the promenade and taking it back to our deck to watch the sun set.
