Katharos Beach is quite hard to access since the only way to get there is a steep path, but the experience is truly rewarding.
The beach is unorganized and there are no facilities besides a bar-restaurant and a car parking area, located around 3-5 minutes away from the beach.
Getting there from Oia takes approximately 20 minutes on foot. Note: The beach can become very wavy on windy days.
Tip: Wear appropriate shoes to get to the beach comfortably!
