Any restaurant/cafe/bar recommendations for eating out with children?
Our Miss 8 months was just getting the hang of food. We found all the restaurants and cafes that we frequented were very happy to accommodate our little lady. I’d say 50% of places had a high chair. She loved the greek yoghurt, she would have happily eaten that for her 3 meals a day.
Things to do?
Beach! We travelled around to most of the beaches, they are all easy to get to. With older children be sure to have beach/swimming shoes as the beaches are mostly pebble beaches. We enjoyed our time at Kouloubos Beach. It had little chairs and umbrellas set up and you could purchase cold drinks.
We loved our little holiday with our baby girl. It would be harder to keep older children entertained in Oia, Santorini, it really is a place for adults. BUT in saying that, I think it’s a lovely place to travel with a small baby that isn’t on the move. If you have older children maybe a day trip or just a couple of nights would be more suitable.
