The backdrop cliffs are winderoded to spectacular shapes so photographers love it! Black sand, and at the waterfront there are mostly slippery stones, so it can get a bit trick to enter the water!! Bathshoes are highly recommended! The part closest to the Tomatofactory-museum and...More

We spent a few blissful hours on this lovely peaceful beach paddling in the warm sea. There are a couple of small tavernas with reasonable prices.

This is perhaps the most beautiful nudist beach on the entire island of Santorini. It is not very busy and it is still difficult to find it full, being very large. It rises beneath some very particular cliffs, eroded by the force of the wind...More
