Caldera Beach, Akrotiri

3.1
#6 of 7 in Outdoors in Akrotiri
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.

    The most beautiful beach of Santorini, beautiful location overlooking the volcanic cliffs and Phira. Sunset straight into the sea. We hope you stay along unfrequented otherwise will go the way of the red beach or white beach ... and in summer are crowded to the extent possible. :(

    The descent is easy and allows access to a protected beach that allows you to quickly swim if you're staying in Akrotikri. Beach of pebbles but clear water.

    I mean, one of the most beautiful views of the Aegean Sea. Not very known as Imerovigli or Oia, Caldera, however, hides a breathtaking panorama at dusk. There are many squares along the way where you can stop to take some pictures of this lovely postcard.
