Where does this catamaran cruise travel to?
- Vlychada port
- The Red Beach
- The White Beach
- Akrotiri Lighthouse, Venetian
- Santorini Volcano
- Mesa Pigadia beach
Vlychada is an easily accessible beach by vehicle or bus located 13 kilometers from Fira on the south coast of Santorini. It is well known for the tall cliffs shaped by the volcano, the wind, and the sea.
In addition, it is one of Santorini’s three major ports, that boast Greek taverns and boat cruises to the volcano and crater. Finally, a visit will undoubtedly convince you that it is one of the most stunning harbors.
The Red Beach
The Red beach is one of the most spectacular beaches on the island and a must-see when traveling to Santorini. Also one of the most popular beaches on the island, an actual draw due to the unique character of this location. While this consists of red, imposing rocks that form cliffs, red sand, and a sea of clear blue water.
The White Beach
White Beach is the most distinctive beach on Santorini. Locals also call it Aspri, or “White Sand,” for its white beach, which stands out against the dark, reddish, or ochre colors of other beaches on the island.
Venetian Lighthouse of Akrotiri
Venetian Lighthouse of Akrotiri is another charming destination too. Most people recognize Santorini for its breathtaking sunsets and the way the colors contrast with the vast white cottages built into the Caldera cliffs. The Lighthouse of Akrotiri is an ideal location to witness a magnificent sunset.
A breathtakingly beautiful view of the red sun entering the Aegean Sea can be observed when seated on the exterior wall or the adjacent rocks.
The volcano is responsible for the island’s shape and morphology, arguably one of Santorini’s most significant features and attractions.
The active volcano is submerged, but everyone should explore the two black lava-formed islands of Palaia Kameni and Nea Kameni. Exploring and admiring the rugged beauty of the volcano’s landscape, seeing its crater, walking around, and hiking on a steaming volcano are all things that can be done.
Mesa Pigadia Beach
Mesa Pigadia Beach is commonly considered to be Santorini’s best-kept secret. However, Mesa Pigadia Beach is no exception to the out-of-this-world beaches that comprise the southwest coast of Santorini. It is in the Akrotiri region, approximately 15 kilometers from Fira, the city of Santorini, and adjacent to the renowned Red Beach, White Beach, and the Akrotiri lighthouse.
Mesa Pigadia is a small, charming cove that reminds me of Vlychada Beach. It is surrounded by tall, beautiful volcanic cliffs shaped by the wind and the sea, protecting it from strong north winds.
