What Caldera Beach lacks in amenities, it makes up for with stunning vistas and a peaceful environment. Located a steep walk away from the main drag, this secluded cove boasts pristine blue waters and striking black sand. Relax in the shade of a tree or try out some of the area's superb snorkeling. It is a good idea to bring drinks with you, but a nearby restaurant can provide snacks and traditional Greek meals. Pack your camera to capture the view of the volcano.

Caldera Beach reviews
On the plus side, very few people go there. It is down a very steep but navigable road, or you can walk. There are no beach chairs or umbrellas. There is one restaurant that was nothing special.

We loved this beach, it's really nice and has very few rocks. Best place in the area for swimming or listening to the waves crash against the shore line.

Beach is Gorgeous, especially this time of year. Water is slightly cold, but the view is unlike anything I’ve ever seen in my life. We actually went scuba diving here (our first experience) and I wasn’t disappointed. There’s reefs right off this beach and they’re perfect
If you are an adventurer and like to explore you HAVE to come here. You can climb around on the rocks 🪨 and get incredible views. Not many people here so you have freedom to explore and have fun. Beautiful beach that is shaded and very different from the other beaches. Loved this place and I highly recommend it on your trip. 👍🏻👍🏻
By far my favorite beach in Santorini so far. It’s accessible by car (it’s a steep drive down but you can do it). One side has fishing boats and a scuba diving stand, but if you walk to the right then it’s a beautiful black-red sand beach with plenty of shade (or sun, if you want to sunbathe!) You can cliff dive at the end if the waves aren’t too high. Keep hiking up and around for more and more amazing views.
Much more secluded beach and cleaner. Tight roads when driving. There is parking on site or rather on the roads.
Great beach with black sand, and probably best snorkelling on the island and a cliff to jump off!
