White Beach, Akrotiri
(2.7/5 based on 420+ reviews on the web)
Only accessible by boat or on foot from nearby attractions, White Beach boasts a backdrop of towering, white cliffs. This black-pebble beach remains extremely private and a great place to escape the tourist crowds. If you go with children, keep in mind that the water gets deep rather quickly, and lifeguards do not patrol the site. Sun loungers and umbrellas, however, are provided. Put White Beach into our Akrotiri itinerary maker and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • Beach of boulders, of difficult access, is not very crowded, considering the Red Beach to the side not worth wasting time here.

  • As we have read in other reviews you have to ensure that u will catch the boat-taxi to get out of this place. Other thing is that any boat stops about 20 meters from the coast, so you have to walk wit...  more »
  • White Beach, located a short distance from Akrotiri, is a beach of fine white sand between the Red and the Black Beach (Mesa Picadia) and is certainly the most beautiful of the three. It can be reached only by boat from the small port of Akrotiri, thanks to a boat taxi service at a charge of € 5 per person. The different boat taxis ply between the beaches every 15 minutes and once paid for the ticket you can take it as many times as you want to and from White and Black Beach. The perpendicular wall placed behind the beach gives its name to the beach itself with its immaculate whiteness nearly blinding. The beach is not very big, and there is no real Tavern (coucil bring packed lunch) the latest IR's for Akrotiri and at 18:30. I personally like the Black Beach of Mesa Picadia for Akrotiri you can take one of the many buses that depart from Phira 1.20 € per person and you're done.
