Vourvolos beach

The Vourvoulos Spit, a picturesque place with wonderful turquoise water and dark gray sand and pebble beach, and sometimes pronounced black, is at the northeastern tip of the island, about 6 km away from Fira. A beech alley leads to the beach.

Beach description

Most tourists don't even know about it. This is a very good option for those who need to disconnect from the bustle of modern life and for lovers of real romance. There are even beach chairs and umbrellas, but few people. To experience the tortures of hunger will not give a small restaurant with traditional for Santorini food. In Greek Vurvulos means a bubble. This unusual name is given because of the peculiar landscape of the local area.

For the average inhabitant, Vurvulos, will be the place for picnics and walks, as the sea often storms and on the shore rolling impressive waves. It is worth remembering that sunbathing without a protective canopy because of the wind can become a dangerous activity for the skin.

You can get there only by car.

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.
