White Beach

It is well-known for its huge white rocks, pumice, black sand, white pebbles and crystal clear waters. There are umbrellas, lounge chairs and a canteen.  


This is a gorgeous beach with volcanic rocks that have been carved by the rain and wind. It has got thin black sand and dark pebbles. Beyond the port of Vlychada, where fishing boats and small cruise ships alight, you can find restaurants and taverns.  The high chimneys you can see belong to the tomato concentrate production factory of Nomikos.    


It is a multicultural and rather busy beach in the foothills of Mesa Vouno where Ancient Thera is located. It is fully organised, with dark sand and crystal clear waters. In the long sidewalk across the beach (where vehicle circulation is forbidden during the summer months) you can find cafés, restaurants and shops. In the settlement you can also find hotels, rooms for rent, supermarkets, car rental offices, travel agencies etc. You can walk through Kamari and head towards Ancient Thera (there are signs that lead you there).  


Kantharos is located near Amoudi. It is a beautiful beach with grey sand and thin pebbles that is divided by rocks into two different parts. From this point you can see Therassia.    

Red beach

It is a rather impressive beach with high volcanic rocks and thin, red pebbles. There are umbrellas, lounge chairs and a canteen. You can get there by boat from Akrotiri, Kamari and Perissia or on foot after ten minutes walking.  


The beach has got thin black and red pebbles as well as a massive rock that can offer its shadow. It is not an organised beach. Within a small distance to the east side you can find the underwater crater of Kouloumpos that was erupted in 1650 for the last time. It is 500m beneath the sea surface but its north-western end is almost 10m deep.

This beach is characterised by black sand, shallow waters, umbrellas and lounge chairs. It is Santorini's most popular beach among families. There is a lifeguard tower as well as wooden toys with which children can play near the sea. There is also a basketball court, beach volley court etc.  

Baxedes-Paradeisos Oia

This is a long beach near Oia that is characterised by dark sand and volcanic rocks. Since waters are rather shallow, it attracts a lot of families. There are also taverns and hotels in the area.  


It constitutes a single beach together with Perivolos. It has got thin black sand and is located on the foothills of Mesa Vouno on top of which Ancient Thera was built, while separating the beach from Kamari. It is an organised beach and it includes umbreallas-lounge chairs as well as a water park and a diving centre. There are beach bars, taverns and hotels along the beach also in Perivolos. In Perissa you can come across the dominant figure of temple of the Holy Cross that is the biggest temple in Santorini. If you enjoy walking, you can follow the path towards Mesa Vouno in order to reach the chapel of the so-called Low Profitis Ilias: from this point you can enjoy the breathtaking view of the island and the Aegean Sea! Another interesting path is the one that leads to Panagia Katefiani.  


It is known for the black sand and the clear waters. There are many beach bars and restaurants that provide lounge chairs, big pillows, tents and umbrellas. In fact, it constitutes, together with Perissa, one single long beach. You can find all the facilities developed for water sports, beach volley courts, restaurants and small taverns as well as hotels. A typical characteristic of this beach is the building of the old factory of tomato production. At that side of Perivolos, you can find the small quiet beach of St. George.
