Little Black Book – Santorini
From best-kept-secret beaches to blink-and-you’ll-miss-them bars, here at Thomson HQ we can’t resist a hidden gem. So, we’ve pulled together the Little Black Book of travel secrets as discovered by our team. Today, it’s Amoudi Bay in Santorini…
Amoudi Bay – a little bay lined with fish restaurants.
While the sunset-spotting crowds tend to stay up among Oia’s clifftop houses, it’s worth heading down the 250-odd steps to Amoudi Bay below. Rough-around-the-edges restaurants line the water’s edge, serving seafood alongside Santorini staples like tomato keftedes and stuffed vine leaves. The day’s catches are laid out at the back of each restaurant – just pick what you fancy and they’ll pop it on the grill for you.
Any time from May to October, when it’s warm enough to sit outside.
From the centre of Oia, follow the teeny painted signs to Amoudi Bay – the staircase zig-zags down the cliff below the castle.
