I spent several happy days on the beach at Vlychada, sunbathing, swimming and beach combing. There are two companies renting sun loungers and umbrellas you can hire. Both cost about €10 per day for a pair of sun-loungers and an umbrella. The one further away...More

Very atmospheric beach! Probably the most atmospheric in Santorini! Worth checking? Due to difficult access not many tourists go there! The only issue is that there are not many places with shadow ( you have to pay for a chair in a bar) so it...More

Small beach on the south west part of island. Few people here thus we enjoy more peace than the others. Better to drive to this beach

If you want a less crowded and quiet beach then thus is the one for you. Lovely beach and close to where you catch boats for sunset cruises etc

Vlychada is a chill beach with black sand and back stopped by sand swept cliffs. Chairs and umbrellas are available for rent from the little cafe by the parking lot. Water is wavy, so swimming can be difficult.

Nice quiet beach in Santorini where you can hire sun bed umbrella combo for 10€ a day with beach service. The beach bar serves good sandwiches and beers for a reasonable price!
