Very long beach with plenty of activities, also in October. The sea is very clean with lots of little fishes. The best beach in Santorini.

This is not a typical post card tropical white sand beach but it’s wonderful in it’s own way. The water was very clean.

Volcanic black sand (actually is iron and other minerals) combined with clean crystal waters of eagean sea! Lot of beachbars in the area and local taverns!

This is a MUST see beach. We took the bus from Stepfani and arrived to the most CLEAN amazing beach. It's worth the bus trip, spend the day, have lunch, walk around and stop in the shops, everybody is very friendly

Although the sand in Santorini is black and not so nice as other greek isles the water is so clear and amazing. We loved it here.

Ok. It was a Sunday. The beach and the sea are fine but the massive amount of sun beds crammed relentlessly together were a downer for me. Just too many people to be enjoyable.

Probably the best beach in Santorini. Powder black sand. Many beach bars with amenities and also a public area. I saw many showers available. Many stores and restaurants on the beach. The water was much warmer and clearer than I expected. The cliffs at the...More
