Hi again----I have a few questions. My husband and I will be staying in Oia for 11 nights mid-late September. We are really looking forward to this as a totally relaxing and peaceful sort of second honeymoon. I have been reading so many posts in the forum, and appreciate all the info! Having said that....I still have a few questions:
1. We do plan to rent a car for at least a couple of days to explore the island at our pace. But we also will want to use the busses---will they take us from Oia to the beaches at the far end of the island? And, will they take us to/from Fira if we decide to go out for some "bigger" nightlife" If there is a link to a bus schedule, I would appreciate it!
2. We would appreciate any thoughts on the more secluded beaches....I have found a lot of info on other sites, but some first-hand reviews would be great.
3. Where might we find good snorkeling? We are thinking we would buy gear on-island rather than lugging it in our bags.....is there such a thing as buying inexpensive snorkeling gear in a shop there?
4. Cover-ups for going to the beach/pool lounge in Oia-----I have some beautiful light cover-ups I have bought over the years in St. Barts---but don't know if is acceptable to wear them heading to the beach in Santorini ie: on the bus.....Nothing too revealing, but less than a typical sundress.
