Katharos beach

Kafaros, the only official beach in the vicinity of Oia, is located in the north-west of the island. It is located very close to the city center.

Beach description

Like the absolute majority of Santorini beaches, it is framed by tall quaint rocks. Two of them are located in the home right in the middle of the beach. For tourists who stayed in the north-west of the island, who do not want to spend extra time on the opportunity to swim, he becomes the only option to refresh in sea water.

Cataros cannot be classified as well-equipped beaches. But this place is famous for the restaurant Katharos Lounge, which has the title of the best not just in Santorini, but throughout Greece. It is opened for night. There is always a great coffee and fresh fruit juices in addition to fine dishes. In addition, the restaurant is very convenient to watch the famous sunsets, the impressions from which people go to Iya from all over the world.

THE advantages include a smooth descent of the coast into the sea and the absence of powerful winds creating dangerous waves. The beach itself is separated from the parking area by 3-5 minutes walking distance. You can get to it on the road to Ammudi, the main thing is not to miss the pointer inviting to turn right.

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.
