Santorini’s beaches are very unique. For example, the sand is made up of colorful lava rocks and pebbles, which gives them a more natural and intimate look than other Greek islands’ sands. The waters, too, are turquoise and clear with many options along the way in terms of diversions from calm family-friendly beaches to popular beach resorts that offer challenging activities like adventure seekers out of this world.
One of the most famous beaches that has received a Blue Flag award, is Kamari Beach. Packed with all kinds of facilities, shops and watersports, this beach is family-friendly and great for relaxing any time of the day. Another hot beach, with plenty of facilities and many outlets that provide leisurely activities, is Perissa Beach. The Blue Flag award symbolizes its sparkling clean water that has earned a 3 star rating from the National Tourism Organization (NTO). With two magnificent beaches that make up a city, this bay attracts a lively crowd and offers those who want to party in huge style.
Vlychada Beach is an undeniable sight to see. Its lovely pine-covered cliffs create natural vistas that look like moonscapes and lunar landscapes. While it can get busy with tourists, you can always find a place to relax. There are even plenty of free spaces for those who seek peace and tranquility, a perfect combination in this large sandy beach. Monolithos Beach may be quieter, but it’s still a great choice for families because of its shallow waters, the nicest sand you’ll find on Santorini, a playground and many more facilities and restaurants/taverns in the area. Last but not least is Red Beach. Known for its bright cliffside red color scheme, pristine crystalline blue waters at the shoreline and stunning red pebbly sand beneath your feet when walking down to the water’s edge; it’s an unforgettable setting with stunning views of every kind, including turquoise water below you where snorkeling can be done. But if solitude aren’t your thing and crowds don’t bother you – that’s just fine too! It can get crowded during summer high season due to its accessibility problem; however, luckily they offer boat rental or a steep path winding down the cliffside.
One thing that you won’t learn in your guidebook is how to spend a day doing activities you probably wouldn’t have otherwise known to do. You’ll find wall climbing and kayaking, as well as traditional walking and cycling routes. Diving excursions abound, as does the chance to go on horseback for a ride through the rolling hills of Santorini.
