White Beach, Akrotiri

2.7
#5 of 7 in Outdoors in Akrotiri
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.

    Call it beach is too, it's a small glimpse hidden between cliffs of white rock, accessible only by boat. Despite being called white beach for white ridges that surround, the seabed is always dark, typical of the volcanic island of Santorini. Is usually less crowded because of the difficulty of achieving and, like the Black and Red Beach are beaches from a dip, some Sun, a few photos and go. Note: I take this opportunity to digress on the taxi boat used to reach these beaches: Beware! We hopped on one of these boats near the Akrotiri Beach, at a cost of 5 euros per person, but despite the low price, we widely regretted! Pick up as many people as possible, the limits of safety, they looked like castaways on a boat, during the route we had to attend to a drain full of chairs from Black Beach to White beach; There were so many that I could barely look at the sea. Much better renting a kayak, more expensive, but unparalleled by the experience described!

    The white beach is stunning right alongside the red beach. Spectacular contrast! But uncomfortable beach. Visit is by boat!  more »
