Check out our guide to all the beaches of Santorini – there is something for everyone here.
Exomitis Beach in Santorini is located in the south of the island, on the cape bearing the same name. It is the next, after Agios Georgios, of the beaches stretching along the southeastern coast. However, unlike the others, this one is not organized and is less frequently visited.
Agios Georgios Beach in Santorini, or St. George’s Beach, is located in the southeastern part of the island, on the coast known for two other famous beaches – Perivolos and Perissa. Agios Georgios is basically a continuation of Perivolos beach, but it is less popular, and therefore less crowded, so it is a great alternative for people who value both comfort and peace.
Armeni is the former main port of Oia, but now mainly small boats and private yachts moor here. It is not a beach per se, but there is a descent and access to the sea, so some tourists take the opportunity to bathe. It is a small, rocky beach with large black and red rocks protruding from the sea.
Baxedes Beach (also known as Paradisos) is located on the northern coast of Santorini, east of Cape Mavropetra, at the height of Finikia. The name Baxedes comes from the Turkish word “Baxes”, which means “garden” (the locals grew vegetables and fruits such as tomatoes, cucumbers, peas, eggplants, carrots, zucchini, lettuce, and melons).
Unlike many Greek islands, Santorini is not an island famous for its beaches. Tourists from all over the world visit this place, encouraged by the amazing volcanic landscape, the view of the caldera flooded with water, high cliffs, and picturesque villages situated on their peaks. This does not mean, however, that we will not find great places for swimming and sunbathing here. On the contrary!
In Santorini, we have dozens of beautiful beaches at our disposal. Among them, there are both fully developed ones with showers, toilets, sunbeds, umbrellas, and access to cafes and bars, as well as completely wild ones, which are sometimes difficult to get to, but you can rest on them in peace and quiet.
You can find descriptions of all these places on our website.
The beaches on the west side of Caldera are difficult to access. An asphalt road leads to only a few of them. The sun reaches them late and they are covered with shadow relatively early in the afternoon. Due to the characteristics of the coastline, it gets very deep in the water quickly. However, this is compensated by the fantastic view of the Caldera and all the islands of the Santorini archipelago.
The beaches on the east side have a relatively flat entrance to the sea and are mostly covered with fine, dark, volcanic sand. The beaches of the tourist resorts of Kamari and Perissa stretch for miles along bustling pedestrian streets filled with cafes, restaurants, and shops.
In the north-eastern part of the island, you will find several beaches that are less developed, quieter, but with equally easy access to the sea. In the south-east, on the other hand, it is worth visiting a few “geological gems”, including Red Beach, White Beach, and Vlychada Beach.
