  • This one looks quite nice from a distance, but when you're actually there it's no better than the other black beaches around Santorini. In the off season almost everything in the vicinity of the beach...  more »
  • Love the black sand and pebbles. Unlike the white and powdery sand, this one doesn’t stick all over your skin, and so feels pretty clean to the touch. Can see low flying planes occasionally. Nothing m...  more »

  • Clear water to swim and soak yourselves tanning the whole afternoon. Will get to see frequent flights passing by the beach at close range.
  • Lovely little place with good facilities and friendly staff. One thing that we didn't know that I would have found useful to know is that the hotel is on the flight path. This can mean that chilling by the pool gets rudely (and quite regularly) interrupted by planes passing overhead.
  • Nice public beach (with free parking) to spend the day.
  • Hotel breakfasts are disgrace for Greek tourism, restaurants are ridiculously expensive and cheating (they offer you a meat plate for two and you get one chicken wing, small sausage and one little piece of meat you have no idea what it is). The beach is of black volcanic sand and is so hot, you cannot stand on it, you cannot lay in the sun because it attracts so much sun, if you are from Island you will burn in flames. So you can only hang on the poolside, and they save on everything, so they don't put chlorine to the pools, so they are not sanitary correct. They save on absolutely everything on the guests account, so you as a guest need to spend loads and loads of money if you wish to "enjoy". It's so sad.
  • Amazing black pebble beach. The water is just perfect. Crystal clear, calm,warm. Great for swimming and snorkelling. Great beach to just chill.
