When planning your Santorini vacation, a common question that'll pop up is “how many days in Santorini do I need?” With everything you've seen and read about the island, you've probably realized that it's not that clear cut.
In the months of November to March, things are going to be much quieter, many places closed for the season, the weather much cooler and unpredictable, and the beaches too cold for swimming.Recommended number of days: 4 days
Shoulder season(May to June, September to October)
If you've read about when is the best time to visit Santorini, you'll know that this is the sweet spot. Crowds haven't quite built up yet, the weather is comfortable, and everything is opened up again.Recommended number of days and nights: 6 days
Ironically, while you'd think that the hottest temperatures and best swimming would mean extending your stay the most, it's a bit of the contrary because of how busy the island gets.Recommended number of days and nights: 5 days
