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. Before you head to Akrotiri, plan trip itinerary details with our user-friendly Akrotiri planner, to make sure you see all that Akrotiri has to offer, including White Beach.

White Beach reviews
What a beautiful place, but not a beach, or maybe a tiny one with black sand, and a huge white rock. You can only get there by boat. more »
Nice beach reachable only by boat. Taxi boats are cheap and they come often. A unique experience to be done! more »
We took a van tour while in Santorini and we visited the white beach, red beach and Black Beach. All were very different and very beautiful ! Great backdrop for photos ! more »
The famus white beach of santorini a unique place that you can go only by taxi-boat that pas every one hour starting from the archeological place of akrotiri or the red beach! Brutal beauty of nature compined with the blue waters of eagean sea! Highly recommended! Has some sunbeds and a smal canteen that they can provide you water or some beverages!
IMPORTANT: Only accessible by boat. If you follow Google Maps, it will take you to Kambia Beach, NOT to White Beach. Don’t repeat my mistake :) For your information, I asked the restaurant in Kambia Beach and was told that there used to be a path to get to White Beach from Kambia, but it was destroyed by rocks and it is not accessible anymore.
It's gorgeous place!
If you are corrageous and a good swimmer and there is little wind you can reach this beach and an even nicer smaller one by swimming through a cave passage from western nearby beach. Fantastic experience.
I think this is the best beach in Santorini, with extremely smooth sand, even in the water. It's very private, only a limited number of people at any given time. Accessible only by boat, 10 euro ticket available for the whole day unlimited rides. Beware the boat stops near but not at the shore, you will have to go in the 1 meter tall water when going off the boat. It has some big rocks with some mini caves great for photos.
