Thirassia on Map
Thirassia island

Thirassia island, Santorini Greece

A small island opposite Oia; a bit of the once round island that was Santorini before the explosion of 1500 b.C. Along with Oia, it forms the northern entrance of the caldera. Its extent is 9 square klm and it has 150 permanent residents.

The main settlement is Chora (or Manolas), not far from the sea and Korfos on the beach at the Eastern part; Riva, just opposite to Oia at the North and Potamos at the west are the rest.

Thirassia is a typical cycladic village with a way of life as it used to be before the invasion of tourism. Tiny houses of various colours give a special character to these small settlements. Few people and fewer tourists stroll around the narrow streets and what is plenty here is calmness, traditional timing and natural life.

Local herbs, scents, an unspoiled beach with clear blue water, a marvellous view of Oia and wilderness are what the island can offer to those who choose to spend some days here.

A few churches at Chora and at Potamos are worthseeing, and if you are on the island on the 21st of September you may attend the local feast in honour of Panaghia Giatrena (Virgin Mary).

A hotel and some rooms to let are available; you will find good food with local dishes in the few taverns and cafes. Access to Thirasia is possible by boat from Oia; excursions are organised in summer.

The boat will leave you in Riva and a taxi can get you to Chora and Potamos.
