Armeni Beach

Greek name: Παραλία Αρμένι / Paralía Arméni
Coordinates: 36°27’37.59″N,  25°22’51.18″E
Our rating: Average

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.

300 stairs lead to the port and “the beach” of Armeni from Oia. In high season one can go there on a donkey but we highly discourage you from doing so for humanitarian reasons. Armeni offers peace, quiet and picturesque views of the caldera, volcano and Therasia island, which is on the other side of the bay.
