A rare beach that is definitely worth visiting. It stands out for its red sand but also for the red and black volcanic landscape that you encounter. It is accessible in two ways. Either by boat from Akrotiri or by car.
As a point of course because you will need to walk a little to reach the beach. You will find coffee and soft drinks on the beach, so you do not need supplies. If you plan to visit it in August, be prepared for a lot of people on the beach. Better to try to go very early in the morning, maybe find a free deck chair or even a corner to leave your towel.
Almost in the southernmost part of the island, Vlychada is considered a very special beach due to its volcanic landscape and the rocks that surround it. The sea has formed many recesses and caves to explore. While there are umbrellas, you will not find it difficult to isolate yourself if you wish.
In the isolated parts of the beach, after passing the sunbeds and the picturesque beach bar built like a “natural cave in the rocks” you can do nudism. Extra bonus: at this point it does not catch the cell phones. At the end of the beach is the Theros wave bar, built on a hill on the rocks, adapted to the aesthetics of the environment and with a special view.
If you travel by boat, between Oia and Imerovigli there is the beach Mouzakia. It is known mainly to those who have a boat since it is accessible only by sea. It always has very clear waters and the privacy offered by the fact that it is not accessible by car, makes it very popular with those who have the opportunity to access it alternatively.
The northern part of the beach we mentioned earlier and is located in the southeast of the island. Also with black sand due to the volcano but this does not prevent its guests to choose one of its bars to relax. It is fully organized while for the most active there is the possibility for water sports. The fact that it has a blue flag will probably make you want to visit it a little more. Kamari beach also has a blue flag but we do not recommend it to you.
Part of the huge beach located in the southeast of the island and also includes Perissa beach. The black sand may be strange but its crystal clear waters compensate every visitor. It is very large in size, so whether you want to sit in one of the many beach bars it had or you want your peace, you can choose.
Behind the beach there are many taverns and rooms for rent. Relatively new entry is the anemos with relaxing semi-double sunbeds. After the mini renovation he did this year on the front of the store, he made a very impressive bar suitable for cocktails.
Anyone who visits the Red Beach of the island is worth going to the next beach, Aspri. It is a very small beach, with white pebbles and very quiet. Ideally quiet in relation to the busy and neighboring Red Beach. You will need to go there prepared.
This is a port and not a beach. However, its waters are wonderful and there are many people from the island who prefer it for their swimming, apart from the food in the taverns on the sea.
Access is a) on foot descending 200 steps or b) with mules if you are an adventurous guy, or c) a classic choice by car but then you will need to walk 200 m. Although Ammoudi is not exactly a beach it is one of the most picturesque places of Santorini and attracts a lot of people who want to enjoy a Santorini meal and take a dip.
It is a nice choice to see the sunset at 7, with crowds standing on the stairs or on the path that leads from the parking lot to the port.
