Vothonas

Vothonas is a great place to visit, simply because of the unusual architecture of the buildings here. The village is built into the rock with many of the houses being part cave, part house which is certainly interesting and unusual.

Monolithos

Monolithos is a quiet region with a collection of hotels around the beach and harbour on the east coast of Santorini just by the northern end of the airport. It gets it’s name from the large rock (Monolith in Greek) where the church of Agios Ioannis stands.

Mesa Gonia

Mesa Gonia is a small and quiet village, It was largely abandoned after the 1956 earthquake but has seen people move back in recent years. Since then the houses have been restored and repainted and it's now a beautiful place for a walk round.

Finikia

Finikia is set among vineyards on the hills just west of Oia. It has typical Cycladic houses with whitewash walls and blue windows as well as some houses painted in other pastel shades making it a lovely place for a wander through the narrow cobbled streets.

Skidia

Skidia is a tiny sandy beach in amongst the rocks between Aliki and Thimonia beaches on the south coast. Although there is a tiny beach most people that visit lay a towel on the rocks as the sandy part of the beach is barely big enough for a handful of people.

Thimonia

Thimonia beach is a quiet and rustic beach on the south coast. This beach is roughly 200m wide and about 20m from front to back. There's a small selection of sun loungers at the western end and a beach bar for refreshments but no water sports.

Kinira

Kinira beach is located near the village of Kinira, just north of Paradise beach on the east coast. It is a narrow sandy beach with some pebbles and a shallow entrance to the sea so it's good for letting young kids paddle in the shallow waters.

Livadi

Livadi is a small quiet and calm beach on the south coast of Thassos close to Giola. It's mainly coarse sand with stones mixed in, there’s also some rocks around the cliffs at the ends and some larger stones at the rear of the beach.

Glikadi

The rustic beach consists of soft, fine sand, a shallow entrance to the sea and some rocks around the edges. There’s no sunbeds, no taverna and definitely no music or water sports. It’s great for kids as they can play in the sand or paddle in the shallow waters.

Agios Vasilios

Agios Vasilios beach is found on the north coast of Thassos and takes it’s name from the small chapel that sits just behind. Agios Vasilios beach is actually a continuation of Tarsanas beach so you could visit both at the same time if you wanted to.
