Beaches in Santorini island
Santorini, the youngest volcanic land in the Eastern Mediterranean, is waiting for you! You can reach it by plane or by ship from Piraeus. Don’t think twice! Experience for yourself the once-in-a-lifetime romance and charm of this pearl of the Aegean.
Deep blue waters; white, red and black sand; vertical cliffs; red and black volcanic pebbles and spectacular rock formations... Some people like them, some don’t... But all of them admit: the beaches of Santorini are the strangest, the oddest they have ever seen! Santorini’s coastal treasures have been profoundly influenced by the volcanic nature of the island. Its unique lunar landscape and the exceptional clarity of the Aegean Sea are simply superb. Let us guide you along the crystalline beaches which form an uninterrupted line along the island’s windswept shores so that you can get an idea of their mysterious, awe-inspiring and curiously compelling beauty!
Start your journey in the northern part of the island at the sun-drenched beaches around Oia; they have a wild untamed beauty and most of them cannot easily be spotted from the main road.
On the south-eastern side of Santorini, sun-loving tourists will encounter magnificent black sandy or pebbly beaches.
