6. White beach

Just as beautiful is the nearby White Beach, which is surrounded by white rocks. It offers few umbrellas, sun loungers, and a canteen, that is built into the rock.


Ideal for families is the organized beach of Monolithos due to its shallow waters. For those staying in Oia and wishing to avoid extensive transfers the non-organized beach of Katharos is the best option. Those who love isolation and tranquility will love the beaches of Kolumbos, Baxedes, Vourvoulos and Pori, which are among the most secluded beaches on the island. Although it doesn't offer a classic beach, the picturesque bay of Ammoudi is ideal for diving in a dreamy environment.
