Monolithos Beach

Monolithos Beach

Monolithos Beach can be recommended for families with children, as the water here is quite shallow. The sandy beach has a dark volcanic colour. The beach is located right next to the airport but we didn’t find the noise to be a problem, especially that the Santorini airport is nothing like a big city aerodrome.

Beaches of Santorini

Santorini is not famous for its beautiful beaches. Tourists from all over the world come here attracted by the amazing volcanic landscape and numerous interesting sights. This however does not mean that you will not find fantastic places  for sunbathing and swimming here. Quite the contrary!

On Santorini you will find more than 30 beaches.Among them there are both fully developed beaches with showers, toilets, deckchairs and umbrellas and access to cafes and bars, and those completely wild, where it is difficult to get to, but characterised by peace and quiet (you need to bring your own provisions, drinks and beach accessories such as an umbrella and a blanket).

You will find descriptions of all of them on our portal.

The beaches on Santorini from the side of the Kaldera (west) are not easily accessible (only a few are accessible by an asphalt road). The sun rises on them late and relatively early in the afternoon they are in the shade. Due to the characteristics of the coastline, the water quickly becomes deep. However, this is compensated by the fantastic view of the Caldera and all the islets of the Santorini archipelago.

Beaches on Santorini from the east have a relatively flat descent to the sea and are mostly covered with fine, dark, volcanic sand. The beaches at the tourist towns of Kamari and Perissa stretch for many kilometres along lively promenades filled with cafes, restaurants and shops.

On the north-eastern Santorini you will find several beaches less developed, quieter, but with equally easy access to the sea. In the south-east, several “geological gems” are worth visiting, including Red Beach, White Beach and Vlychada Beach with its amazing volcanic sand formations.
