Mavropetra Beach

Mavropetra Beach
Greek name: Παραλία Μαυροπετρά / Paralía Mavropetrá
Coordinates: 36°28’39.95″N, 25°22’38.24″E
Our rating: Additional

Mavropetra beach is located on the northern coast of Santorini, west of Cape Mavropetra, at the height of Oia (on the opposite shore of the island).

The name of the beach comes from the nearby cape Mavropetra (from Greek – black stone).

The escarpment stretching along the beach in the afternoon gives shade and shelter from the heat. There are few buildings along the beach, the beach is wild and it is very long and wide – everyone will find a place for themselves, even in the high season.

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).

From the beach you can go for a walk to a small port located on Cape Mavropetra.

Parking place can be found right at the beach or in the port.
