Swimming and jumping from cliffs


I am going to Santorini for 2 nights only as the end of my cycladic island hopping in august 2013.

Are there any good places on the west side by the cliffs where you can swim and jump from some cliffs everything from 5-15 meters high with deep water? Maybe some popular places where also other people are for jumping, I am almost sure there must be places like this. And is it easy to get to those places?

Thank you.

Hi David,

Here's a previous posting on the subject. Take a look at what's been said before and please check the water before you jump. Just before the landing site underwater has been clear of rocks in the past, there's no guarantee it will have stayed that way. It has in my experience, but I always check again each time I go. I'd rather a couple of minutes checking and being safe than spending the rest of my life paralyzed regretting it.

Hey and welcome DavidTravelFeveer:-) The spot below Oia referred to in above link is down at Ammoudi.. you can walk down from Oia via the 'steps' or drive/take a cab down;-) There are a few waterfront Tavernas there.. Katina's, Sunset.. the last and little one at the end is Dimitri's where you'll note the path turning around the bend there.. hopefully it will be cleared this year.. you won't miss the 'swimming spot' noted;-) Happy planning.. and EnJOY!

The spot that BrotherleeLove mentions in the link, I'm sure its there, is a great one. You can really enyoy the jump along side the small church which leads you down into a steep drop off. I think he still has that picture on his postings, jumping from the cliff below Ioa.
