Which Greek Island Blog

Katelios

Katelios beach is mainly shingle with some stone and sand in places, particularly at the waters edge. It doen’t have the wealth of tourist facilities that you would find on the main Kefalonia beaches so it’s a welcome change to some but disappointing to others.

Vrachinari

Vrachinari beach is usually pretty deserted, there are a handful of sun loungers and a taverna at the rear of the beach, the sea stays shallow making it decent for kids but there are some rocks around the entrance to the sea and at either end of the beach so not ideal.

Eros

Eros is an upmarket beach with wooden sun loungers and straw umbrellas to rent in front of the taverna. The beach bar is good quality and offers great food, cocktails, music, free wifi and will even deliver snacks and drinks to you as you relax by the sea.

Perissa

Perissa beach is widely considered the best in Santorini, it has black sand, crystal clear water, beach side tavernas, good quality umbrellas and sun loungers as well as a fantastic selection of water sports to keep everyone in your group entertained.

Kambia

Kambia beach is a less well known beach and lies on the western end of the south coast of Santorini, it's easily accessible via road and has some parking available. Kambia is a quiet beach that offers natural shade and a view of the lighthouse at Faros as well as Red Beach.

Katharos

Katharos beach is a typical Santorini black sand and pebble beach located in the north of Thira close to Oia. Katharos is a quiet and unorganised beach with no tavernas, sun beds, umbrellas and certainly no water sports. There is a taverna near by though.

Kolumbo

Kolumbo beach or Cape Columbo is considered by locals to be the best beach in the north of the island. There's a quiet section to the east which is often used by naturists and a taverna and loungers to the west that's more popular.
