Main Beaches

Red Beach Panorama The beaches on Santorini are beautiful and varied, with white, red, or black sand depending on location. However, swimming must be done with some care as the water gets deep quickly and rip currents are not uncommon. Flip-flops are necessary as the black sand gets very hot in the sun. SCUBA diving is also available with trips to wrecks, the volcano, and the underwater caldera face (or so we are told; none of us dives). The easiest way to get to the beach is using the public bus service, KTEL, departing from the central station in Fira. Tickets are inexpensive and purchased on the bus in cash.

Getting to some of the beaches can be done only by shared water taxi from other beaches. Service is periodic, but often without fixed schedule. Fares are paid in cash on the boat.

Arrays of lounges and umbrellas that appear on many beaches are available for rent. A short while after sitting down, someone will approach you and ask for payment, in cash. Typical rates are EUR 5 to 10 for the day.
