Kamari is a popular beach with an almost endless supply of sun loungers with up to 8 rows in places, there’s also a number of tavernas and restaurants along the full length of the beach as well as multiple water sports vendors and even a dive centre.

Agia Paraskevi

Agia Paraskevi beach is located on the east coast of Thira adjacent to the airport. It has black sand and pebbles with sunbeds and umbrellas. The rear is lined by trees so there's a chance to get out of the sun if the heat gets too much for you.

Agios Georgios

Agios Georgios has black sand and pebbles. There's minimal natural shade with just the odd tree dotted about at the rear of the beach. Behind the trees is a small road and behind that is an almost endless choice of tavernas and shops to get refreshments.


Vlychada beach is surrounded by impressive rocky cliffs and has a charming harbour and marina at the southern end where you can watch the yachts and fishing boats coming and going. This is also where you'll find a number of restaurants, hotels, bars and shops.


Monolithos beach is on the east coast of Santorini and has crystal clear waters with fine black sand. The water gently shelves in to the sea here so it’s good for kids. Just keep in mind that this region has strong winds so keep an eye on weak swimmers.


Karterados beach has the usual dark sand with some stones, there's often dried up seaweed in the area but it's not a huge issue. There's wooden boardwalks between the loungers and up to the tavernas so you can get off the hot sand when walking.


Perivolos isn't a working Greek town or an old settlement that's turned into a tourist resort, it's simply a collection of hotels and tavernas around Perivolos beach. There's loads of tavernas, some of which stay open late with cocktails, music and dancing.


Perissa is an attractive village with whitewashed houses and volcanic scenery. It was mostly built in the sixties and some say it lacks the authentic Greek charm of other villages but it makes up for that with its relaxed sea side nightlife.


Kamari is a beach resort on the east coast of Santorini and it's arguably the best beach on the island. The village itself has loads of restaurants and a large portion of those are down by the sea front so you’ll get to soak in the views whilst enjoying your meal.


Firostefani is located just north of the capital Fira and offers similar spectacular views out over the Caldera. Nightlife in Firostefani is good, there's a load of restaurants with several types of food from traditional Greek to barbecue, Italian and even Sushi.
