Avis beach is located at the southern end of the airport on the west coast of Santorini, just south of Agia Paraskevi. It's a black sand and pebble beach and is relatively quiet along most of the stretch, except maybe when planes are coming or going.


Perivolos lies on the south east coast and has the usual black sand and pebbles. It offers everything for a more upbeat day on the beach with hundreds of sun loungers available to hire as well as bars playing music and water sports too.


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.


Pori beach stretches out for over a kilometre from the cliffs at Kolumbo beach in the north all the way down to Pori port to the south. It's largely deserted, pebble underfoot, backed by impressive cliffs and generally pretty rugged.


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.


Vourvoulos beach is on the northeast coast of Santorini close to Imerovigli. The beach has grey sand and doesn’t attract too many tourists so is normally pretty quiet. That being said there are still loungers and umbrellas available and a taverna too.


Caldera is a small beach in the south of Santorini, there's minimal facilities, you wont find any sun beds or umbrellas here and no water sports either. There are however fabulous views over the caldera and the other islets that make up Santorini.


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.
