Hi guys

We are planning to go to Crete in the beginning of September. I thought about taking the ferry to Santorini from there and stay on Santorini for about 3 days. I'd appreciate some advice on the fastest way to get from Crete to Santorini, also, any recommendations for accommodations on Santorini? I know the island is not cheap, but it would be nice to find a nice and not too expensive place to stay.

Any ideas regarding Crete, of course, are also welcome.

Thanks in advance

Not sure if this is the cheapest option, but I booked my ferries using this site: You'll be able to select from a range of seating options, so some will be cheaper than others.

As for lodging, what are you looking for? I stayed in hostels in Santorini and Crete, and don't know much about non-hostel options.

Let me know!
