Why visit an island without enjoying the beach? Our Santorini Beach Tour shows you the beautiful unique shorelines and rock formations the island is known for.
Islands and beaches; you’re never going to separate the two. Why would you want to, given all the diversion and relaxation that beaches have to offer? Having been recognized as one of the most beautiful island destinations by several leading travel publications, Santorini is of course going to offer outstanding beach excursions. Yet once you’re here, you quickly see that the island’s beaches are unlike any other in the entire world.
Close your eyes for a moment, and picture a beach. Images of white sand and palm trees are likely the first things to enter your mind. Well, you won’t find those in Santorini. What you will find is topography and shorelines, unlike anything you’ve ever seen. Thanks to the area’s volcanic history, Santorini’s beaches offer you a one-of-a-kind glimpse at the beauty and majesty of the geological world. With our Santorini Beach Tour, you’ll get an up-close look at these wonders, while also enjoying the crystal clear waters of the island’s lagoon.
The catalyst for Santorini’s unique beaches lies at the bottom of the bay in the volcanic caldera. Its activity over the years has produced tons of volcanic rock, while also forming the cliff formations that ring it in. The sights of the beaches serve as a reminder both of nature’s fury as well as its potential to create absolutely stunning natural wonders.
Your Santorini Beach Tour begins wherever you want it to, either from your hotel, the airport, or any local street corner. If you’re in port with a cruise, simply take the ferry and make your way to the cable car exits in Fira. An air-conditioned minivan will usher you back and forth between three of the island’s most famous beaches: Kamari Beach, Red Beach and Perivolos Beach. The tour officially lasts four hours, during which time you’ll have access to a local guide who will give you all of the information you need to enjoy your excursion.
Kamari Beach is part of the famous stretch to shoreline known as Black Beach. You’ll quickly see the name to be apt, and the volcanic rocks in the region help to form its black sands. Lining the beach is an array of picturesque homes that show the unique architectural style of the region. These man-made structures serve as the perfect contrast to Mesa Vouno, a giant rock emerging straight from the sea.
In contrast to Kamari Beach, Red Beach offers you the chance to walk amongst impressive red rock cliffs as your toes make their way through red sands. Nearby is the archeological site of Akrotiri, where you can see actual artifacts from the ancient Minoan civilization that was destroyed when the caldera erupted almost 3,600 years ago. Words can’t describe the feeling when, upon seeing these sights, you realize that your Santorini Red Beach Tour has you standing in the same spot that Plato might have been talking about when describing the lost city of Atlantis.
Santorini’s third most famous waterfront (yet equally as impressive as the other two) is Perivolos Beach. Here, you’ll recognize more of the beachfront amenities found in other areas of the world, such as taverns and seaside restaurants. All of the stops on the Santorini Beach Tour, however, feature entertainment and relaxation options such as:
There’s beaches, and then there’s Santorini beaches. Don’t deprive yourself of the chance to enjoy them any longer. The Santorini beach excursions that we offer will set the standard by which you will compare all other waterfront locations for the rest of your life.
