|Greek name:||Παραλία Μπαξέδες / Paralía Baxédes|
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).
It is an over 1 km long, wide beach with black volcanic sand and small pebbles. The escarpment stretching along the beach in the afternoon gives shade and shelter from the heat.
Usually there are no crowds here and everyone can find a place for themselves. Sun loungers can be rented in some parts of the beach, but for the most par you have to use your own equipment.
The beach is especially recommended for families with children because the waters are quite shallow (which happens quite rarely on Santorini), and the bottom is sandy.
On the beach or on the slope along the beach you will find some restaurants and accommodation facilities, but there are not many of them.
It can be quite windy on the beach, especially when there is Etesian (mild, dry wind regularly blowing every year in the warm season, mainly from the north).
Parking area is easily accessible and can be found on both the east and west sides of the beach.
