The foundation for the creation of the new port of Santorini in Athinios Bay was laid in the late 1960s. The old harbor was in Fira Bay. Road access to Athinios is problematic because of the steep caldera. The winding road that descends to the harbor is narrow, and especially when a ship arrives or departs, it is very crowded. There are no accommodations in the port area, only cafés, restaurants, travel agencies, tourist shops, and vehicle rental agencies. Among them we find hidden the little church of Saint Nicholas (Agios Nikolaos).
