About Finikia

Finikia is a beautiful village in the north of Thera island in Santorini, it’s around 15km from both the airport and the capital Fira and that journey would take about 20 minutes in the car.

Finikia is set among vineyards on the hills just west of Oia. It has typical Cycladic houses with whitewash walls and blue windows as well as some houses painted in other pastel shades making it a lovely place for a wander through the narrow cobbled streets.

There are a handful of hotels and apartments available in Finikia but it’s probably not somewhere that most visitors to Santorini would want to stay as it’s so quiet and there’s not much in the way of restaurants or shops either. It’s perfect if you want to leave the hustle and bustle of the main tourist hot spots behind nad have a relaxing day in a traditional Greek village though.

You can easily walk between Oia and Finikia if you don’t have a car and it would probably take somewhere between 15 and 30 minutes.

There’s no beach in Finikia but there are a few in the north of Santorini, if you plan to stay in the area and would like to visit a beach then check out Katharos beach, Baxedes beach or Koulumbo beach.
