The White beach is the cove near the Red beach. It has very similar sand but the cliffs surrounding it are white the same as the stones on the beach and in the water.
We took the boat, that cost 5 euro/person, on the Red beach and rode to the White beach. The trip took us about 10 minutes.
The rocks look very unordinary.

Especially we liked the lonely white rock.
Riding to the White beach I was standing right on the bow. The feeling is like you are driving the boat.
White Beach Is Ahead
Reaching the White beach the boatman warned us that we do not come directly to the beach but have to land into the water. As we had all our stuffs with us this was an interesting experience :) But the beach was amazing! It was not crowded and the sand was very soft under our feet.

Another noticeable thing of this beach that almost every girl here was swimming or sunbathing topless.
Akrotiri is the small village on the south side of Santorini. This village is based on the Minoan Bronze Age settlement that was destroyed by the Santorini volcano eruption in 1500 BC. There are many things to review here if you are interesting in archaeology and history. We didn’t have time to visit the archaeological site but it seems to be interesting.
Another noticeable place near Akrotiri is the Red beach that has its color because of the red sands and cliffs formed by volcanic lava.
This beach can be reached from Akrotiri but we had to walk from the bus stop. This route goes through a small harbour.

Then it goes through a nice cafe and over hills.

And raising to the hills we were able to see the nice view on the Red beach.
The Red Beach
The beach is not very well organized but there are sunshades although we didn’t find where to rent the one.

Spending some time on this beach we heard the guys shouting “The boat to the White beach!” and we decided to take the boat and left the Red beach to visit the White beach that was our next point in our “must visit” places.
