Top Beaches in Santorini

Top Beaches in Santorini

Lying in the southern Aegean Sea, Santorini is a volcanic island of rugged shorelines, rolling waves, and soaring cliffs. But the Greek island’s main draw is its postcard-perfect beaches. Whether you’re seeking adventurous water sports or sun-soaked relaxation, here are some the best beaches in Santorini.

Monolithos Beach

Of all of Santorini’s beaches, Monolithos ranks among the most family-friendly, with a playground and beach games to keep youngsters entertained all day. It’s also popular with families thanks to its ample shade and gentle waves. Monolithos Beach lies just over four miles (seven kilometers) from Fira, on the eastern shore of Santorini.

Kamari Beach

Framed by the towering limestone cliffs of Cape Mesa Vouno—topped by the ruins of Ancient Thira—Kamari is a sizzling black-sand beach with all the spectacular coastal views people have come to expect of Greece. Rent a beach chair, pick your spot, grab a drink, and watch the waves roll in.

Perissa Beach

Like Kamari Beach, Perissa is a black-sand beach and a great spot to park yourself and top up the suntan. Snorkeling and windsurfing are popular activities by day, and when night falls, Perissa turns into a lively party beach.

Perivolos Beach

Perivolos is the longest stretch of sandy beach on Santorini. Break up a long coastal stroll with a refreshing drink at one of the welcoming beach bars, which fuel nighttime beach parties after the sun goes down. The deep blue waters make Perivolos a popular dive site, as well.

Red Beach

Nestled beneath soaring cliffs, with volcanic red pebbles and clear, turquoise waters, Red Beach is widely considered among Santorini’s top beaches. Shallow waters close to shore make it popular among families, with plenty of fun to be had among the rock pools and paddling spots.
