The best way to explore these island if you like adventure as we do to rent a car. We try to figure out where we are with the help of the map but it didn’t worked well for us so we just give-up throw the map and drive to our adventure and create our special map just was fantastic and beside very famous and known places we were able to experience unknown small lovely villages, churches, restaurant’s, monastery’s and even hidden remote beaches and you don’t have to worry to be last don’t forget you are in such a small island and there is just one main road just what you have to do is after driving into small unknown roads just come back to main road and drive.

We stayed at Akrotiri which is very nice to relax and be away from crowd so we were very close to red beach actually we walked to the beach 30-40 min. It was very good exercise! and excavation site was very close as well which is very famous for it’s beautiful well preserved frescoes, many objects and artworks you can see many of them at the excavation site if it’s permitted for visitors or you can go to Thira and enjoy the archaeological and prehistoric museums.
