I prefer less frequented places when it comes to travel and this beach provided just that. We were rather brave in choosing to walk from Oia to this beach, a hour walk on the main road. The taxi fare was 30 euros too high for my wallet. We learned later the local bus ( which looks like a luxury tour bus) only charges 1.80 euro per person to get here. I loved that the beach was so secluded. We only saw two other people there. The sand is black from the volcanic settlement and small and large pebbles. This would be a great place to have water shoes. The kids had nonetheless a good time building a sandcastle and swimming close to shore. Right at the entrance to the beach from the road there is the Paradise cafe where there is free internet and lunch fare for an average of 5-6 euro for simple tasteful sandwitches and hambugers. The best thing is that this cafe gives you access to their large pool where we swam after the beach outing.

This beach was nice, but like all beaches in Santorini it is rocky. It is a good place to enjoy the sunset. For anyone thinking of traveling to Santorini, I would recommend purchasing a pair of diving slippers. These are slippers with a rubber sole and stretch top that you can easily slip on over your feet to protect them from rocks and pebbles while at the same time making it easy for you to swim with them on. Getting in and out of the water in bare feet can be painful without them.

We wandered along this deserted beach hoping to find a suitable, not rocky, place to swim. We were out of luck. I like my beaches to be sandy, but this one wasn’t so we did not stay long nor did we swim.

Nice pebble beach, sandy at some points. The preferred beach of Oia's local families as it is only 5 minutes driving from the center of the village. Peacefully beautiful sunset from the beach. Loved it.
