Mesa Pigadia Beach, Santorini

3.8
#9 of 17 in Beaches in Santorini
Santorini's hidden gem, the secluded Mesa Pigadia Beach is surrounded by white cliffs, with pebbled sand and large rocks strewn along the shore. As you walk along the rocky coastline, you can see colorful houses built into the hills, some of which are used for storing fishermen's boats during the winter. One of the caves in the rocks leads to another small beach on the other side of the hills. Enjoy the shimmering blue water and the sound of crashing waves, or sample the delicious fresh foods in the family-run tavern.

The second was closed and there is an abusive, with minor daughter that you're slurring some words in English, which rent sun beds and umbrellas are not his, but that seems to be seized. Some bather, annoyed, justifiably not paid him. Judge for yourself, I'm pretty good Neapolitan annoyed at finding me the squatters while on vacation, so I'll point out.
