A hidden haven for sunbathing and snorkelling
On the southern coast of Santorini, White Beach is accessible only by boat, offering a secluded spot to relax and enjoy the crystal clear waters of the Aegean Sea.
Located on the southern shore of Santorini, White Beach - so-called because of the dazzling white cliffs which rise around it - is one of the island's prettiest little coves.
Similar to the nearby Red Beach, it is composed of grey, white, and black pebbles. The sea here is remarkably clear and teeming with marine life, making it a great place for snorkelling and getting up close to an underwater world.
The only practical way to reach this isolated beach is by sea, so it is easily accessible to those on a luxury yacht charter and is a perfect choice if you are looking for a tranquil spot to relax while visiting Greece.
What's more, the unique rock formations surrounding the bay create a number of underwater caves which are great for exploring.

Quieter and less visited than neighbouring beaches along this stretch of coastline, you may find that you have White Beach entirely to yourself when you visit, especially early in the morning or later in the day. The beach is west-facing, so it's perfect for watching the sunset.
The stark white cliffs and the sparkling blue sea - the colours of the Greek flag - are evocative of the wild side of Santorini, an idyllic spot to immerse yourself in the pristine natural beauty of this beautiful corner of the Mediterranean.
