Santorini is trying to minimize over-tourism problems

Published on : Thursday, April 26, 2018

Oia SantoriniGreece’s south eastern mainland Santorini is seeking to limit the number of visitors in a bid to battle against mass tourism.

 

 

This Greek island creaks under the strain as in last year there were 2 million holiday makers visited Santorini.

 

For this the number of cruise ship tourists stopping off in Santorini was drastically cut to 8,000 a day in 2017, a year after as many as 18,000 passengers were seen disembarking from the island’s port in 24 hours.

 

 

The Mayor of Santorini has capped the daily influx at 8,000, fearing that the Cycladic island is otherwise in danger of losing its charm.

 

 

Now the tourism authorities put wine tourism in the fore front by creating a viable second income source.
