Santorini Vlychada beach

Information about Vlychada beach

Vlychada Santorini: Vlychada is a nice, organized beach on the southern side of Santorini. It has a small port where fishing boats and yachts moor in summer.
The area is characterized by two large chimneys. One is directly behind the beach and one is just nearby. These chimneys belong to a factory that is no longer in use and the brick structures are actually quite pleasant to look at.

Vlychada itself is quite long and is covered with dark grey sand. There are a number of sun loungers here. It is worth having a look at the rock formations behind the beach which are quite interesting.

The area offers some restaurants.

    Ah, Vlychada!

    Translated from Italian:

    Years and years have passed, but Vlycada is unforgettable. At the time there were five or six umbrellas, behind - right in front of the abandoned factory - the wonderful "Family Tavern" a little battered, of moving beauty, we took the grapes directly from the pergola. There was no marina then, only the cliff with talcum sand. There are places where one should not go back, and not because they have changed or modernized, but because it was too beautiful, too intense and the pilgrimages are always a little sad. But you go there, and stay until the sun goes away.

    Original text:

    Passati anni e anni, ma Vlycada è indimenticabile. Al tempo di ombrelloni ce n'erano cinque o sei, dietro - proprio davanti alla fabbrica abbandonata - la meravigliosa "Family Tavern" un po' scassata, di commovente bellezza, l'uva la prendevamo direttamente dalla pergola. Non c'era il porticciolo allora, solo la falesia con la sabbia di talco. Ci sono luoghi nei quali non si deve tornare, e non perché cambiati o modernizzati, ma perché è stato troppo bello, troppo intenso e i pellegrinaggi sono sempre un po' tristi. Ma andateci voi, e rimanete fino a quando il sole va via.

    Nice beach
    Two nice taverns close to this rocky beach. 5 euros for two huge sunchairs with a fixed big parasols is the cheapest we found so far. Nice and quiet.
