Six Beaches in Santorini Greece
Greece is known for its amazing landscape. Once a powerful volcano,
the remaining caldera offers a unique scene of high walls. The whitewashed
buildings with brightly-colored accents form a pattern that reflects
the sunlight. These mountainside villages are the epitome of Santorini.
Even with its awe-inspiring scenery,
many people head to Santorini simply for its fabulous beaches. Below,
find the most popular beaches on the island and what makes them
- Perissa Beach: Located on the eastern side of the island, this
black sand beach may be a bit touristy, but the massive rock known
as Mesa Vouno that sits in the deep blue waters makes tolerating
the crowds worthwhile.
- Kamari Beach: Also in the east, this beach is quite similar
to Perissa in that it offers the same black sandy landscape; however
it offers a completely different feel.
- Red Beach: Near Akrotiri, this quieter beach has black and red
volcanic rocks that make it quite memorable.
- Monolithos Beach: Situated near Kamari, this beach is close
to the airport, but offers less accomodations and taverns, making
it a much less crowded area.
- Cape Columbo Beach: Located in the northeastern portion of the
island near the village of Finikia, the beach has impressive rock
formations and a quiet atmosphere.
- Perivolos Beach: Perivolos is essentially a continuation of
Perissa, offering the same black sandy beach.
