This is a hard review coming straight from Mykonos which is up there for the best city I have ever been to.  Santorini definitely maintained the beauty of Mykonos with gorgeous sunsets, however the partying and things to do and see definitely did not compare, not bashing on Santorini but more praising Mykonos.  Santorini still provided awesome night out experiences paired with great food and its beauty is definitely worth a visit.  Would I come back?  maybe for a couple days but I would dedicate most of the time to Mykonos if you're really looking for a more lively and fun culture.

    • Cliff jumping in Amoudi Bay

      • Walk down the 214 steps to Amoudi Bay from Oia, then walk to the left through the seafood restaurants and follow the path on rocks around the cliff

      • You arrive at crystal clear water where you get in, swim across to the lone rock in the water, and jump off the gray ledge you’ll see on the left side

      • WEAR WATER SHOES as the ground hurts as you’re gettin into the water, and as you climb up the steps to the jumping spot
