Santorini coastland offers a rich diversity of red, white and black beaches, mostly pebbly. There are coves, hidden sea caves and sheer cliffs. They are most pleasantly accessed by boat, allowing visitors to explore hidden places, picturesque ports, seaside villages and secluded bays.
With its Gaudesque, wind sculpted pumice hills, Vlychada offers both organized beach with sun beds and umbrellas you can rent for the day, as well as large stretches of unspoiled sandy beach. The serviced areas allow you to enjoy a fresh juice, cocktail, iced coffee or a nice salad, without leaving the seafront.
The famous Red Beach is a very popular destination. It is very busy but certainly worth a visit. From there you can take a small wooden boat to the equally famous White Beach. A small stretch of white sand and beautiful rocks worth visiting for one of the most luxurious swimming experiences, for sea lovers.
Waterskiing, sea kayak, windsurfing, snorkeling as well as diving is also offered at the Perivolas Watersports Center. So, why not find your own beach for the day, either on the sailboat or with one of the speedboats. You can take a delicious picnic basket of local delicacies, prepared by the Perivolas chef, to enjoy by the water, while you bask in the luxurious Aegean blue. Swimming in the caldera lake is the seminal jewel in Santorini’s crown.
