Eros beach

Eros-one of the coziest beaches in Santorini, where you can enjoy privacy and relaxation amid beautiful nature. is also known as Lovers Beach or Sweethearts Beach. This name is associated with the isolation of this corner of the island, where no one and nothing will interfere with a secluded romantic holiday.

Beach description

The Eros Beach is located in the south of the island, below Vlychada and above Red. It's so isolated that many tourists don't even know about its existence on Santorini. So the main visitors are those who like solitude and want to rest from the civilization and loud crowds of people.

The long shoreline is 6 km in length and 35 m in width. The surface is sandy: some patches are golden, some are black. It's always quiet and comfortable here, as many high mountains protect Eros from high winds. The slopes add to the exotic landscapes of the shoreline, like they were ripped straight out of space fiction.

It is sometimes windy here and high waves can occur, so take note of that if you plan a vacation here. The blue water here is clear and clean. But be careful, as there are sharp stones near the shore, don't cut yourself.

When is the best time to go?

Greece - a country with a long length from north to south, so the recommendations will vary depending on the place where you are going. The holiday season  begins in May and reaches a peak in July-August: there are too many tourists, and the temperature on the southern islands reaches 40 degrees, which may still not play a role on the beach, but certainly not suitable for sightseeing. So the best time to relax in Greece is the end of spring-beginning of summer or September-October.

The infrastructure at a minimum level is well developed. On a territory of the beach are many umbrellas under which you can hide yourself from the heat.

Local residents monitor the cleanliness of the coast, this is a reason why entrance to the territory of Eros is not free of charge. Please consider that the beach is not equipped with showers and changing rooms.

  • In season, food is available at the kiosks, also are available meals in a cafe. However, there is no many restaurants and bars, which you can find on most popular beaches of the island.
  • Trading close to water is prohibited. This is a reason why all cafes, kiosks, taverns where work even English-speaking staff, are concentrated in a village on the top of the hills.
  • At the very beginning of the beach there is a nice seafood restaurant. Its guests are provided with free of charge sunbeds.
