Red, black and white volcanic pebbles define the shores of the Santorini beaches. Santorini Island offers some of the most unique beaches in the Cyclades with a wonderful palette of colors, steep cliffs and deep blue waters.
The Red Beach, located on the southernmost part of Santorini, is one of the most captivating beaches on the island. It’s isolated location, close to the Akrotiri excavations, scarlet-colored sand and rocky cliffs truly make it a rare sight. Whether you choose to admire it from the headland or make your way down to the beach, this natural volcanic marvel will leave you mesmerized!
Next to the Red Beach, you will find the extraordinary White Beach. The cove’s towering white cliffs offer a remarkable contrast to its black pebble shoreline. It remains quiet due to it’s isolated location, creating an ideal spot to relax and enjoy the inviting crystal-clear waters.
The Black Beach of Santorini is a fully-organized beach covered with black sand. On the south end of the beach, there is a small arch, which was part of an ancient sanctuary dedicated to Poseidon, and where it gets its name, Kamari. The Black Beach of Kamari offers a plethora of amenities, such as sunbeds, umbrellas, different water sports and a lifeguard, thus making it especially popular with families with children. The promenade along the waterfront is overflowing with shops, restaurants, tavernas and cafes; the perfect setting for a pleasant stroll.
