Best Santorini Beaches

The beaches in Santorini are much different than other beaches in Greece due to their special geological features. Red and black volcanic pebbles lay on the shores of Santorini, while cliffs provide a picturesque ambiance of unique beauty.

In brief, the most famous beach is Red Beach. At the same time, Perissa Beach, Kamari Beach, and Perivolos Beach are also particularly popular and many accommodation options are located there.

Note that some beaches are not easily accessible by road but can be reached with a Jetski Expedition! Also, the black and red sand of the beaches can become very hot due to their dark color.
