  • The place is a little difficult to access, too bad. After an afternoon at the beach, going back, we are facing the Katharos Lounge. . Delicious salad with strawberries, I highly recommend this dish. (I still have the mouth water!)

  • This beach we found great! We came there, and only one other couple was here. At 15 h 30 there were 17 people ... Quietly so. No beach chairs and commercial hassle. At the top of the hanger is a (single) Tavern so you will starve here do not ... PLEASE NOTE: not for kids. It is a keistrand with wild waves and large rocks in the sea. If you're having a golf floats and against a rock rumors, you break your knee, or neck ... Also no indent shadow here!!! From bus station in Oia is the 20 min steps on a main road and eventually beat you between two resorts to descend further down. I hope this little Beach remains quiet but the Council would like to. (To lazy to build sand castles or ice creams to ferrets or you come here yet not) I have here especially of sight and the wild waves enjoyed!

  • First you must go down a steep staircase that fades into the Hill and low along a path to a small black sand beach which is transformed to rocks in the water. It is a very hot sand, only there is a restaurant, so here you have to put your towel forcefully on the stones. Entering the water is difficult, does stand, but the water is rich for swimming. With a few small waves. It is a hidden Beach, you can do topless calmly. You have to drive and carry your own thing: water, food, etc.

Where to stay in Oia

Oia boasts arguably the most unusual lodgings in the Cyclades, offering rooms in cave-like houses carved into Santorini's dramatic cliff faces. Converted into boutique hotels, these dwellings provide airy rooms with good natural ventilation, allowing them to remain cool throughout the island's hot summers. The western side of Oia offers the best sunset views, but you must book months in advance to stay there. The less crowded eastern side offers comfortable lodgings in reasonably priced apartments with private balconies and free Wi-Fi.
