Karterados is a very small town in Santorini island, but just in the center of the island... the distance to the north or to the south of the island is always 25to30 minutes by ATV or scooter. I guess that's the right choice if u can't afford very expensive hotels in Fira (the biggest town in Santorini, where nightlife is).
Santorini is a very nice island, not as beautiful as other greek islands, in my opinion, but a good choice for families, old and young couples and solo travelers who r interested in nature and meditation.
We r a couple of female friends in their 30s and 1 week in Santorini has been more than enough for a september holiday. there were quite a few people around at night, so after the 3rd day we almost knew all the tourists,bartenders and owners of club around.Therefore i guess u shouldn't expect that much during ur september holidays if u looking for some fun nightlife.
Beaches were quite empty as well, so we had lots of relaxing time around there. We have been to Kamari beach, Perissa beach, Vlychada Beach, Red Beach, Monolithos beach, Koloumpos Beach, Akrotiri and of all the first 4 r the ones we recommend the most. There s no sand beach around except for one called WHITE BEACH, which we regretted not to have visited. Vlychada beach is awesome, but dont go crazy if naked people stand next to u there.
with no byke or car or ATV is almost impossible to go around. We got a big ATV for 165€ for a week, but i guess u can get some more expensive deal there. During our small trips from town to town or beach to beach we have seen lots of empty fields and crazy streets, so be ready to anything when you ride :D! haha..
enjoy ur sunsets in santorini, get some connection on ur phone and go around with a working map on ur phone !
