Top activities at Vlichada Beach
Ormos Vlichada is a black beach a good 800 meters long in the south of Santorini. On the surface, the fine gravel black beach is interspersed with small white pumice. At the beginning of the beach, the most striking feature is the restored tomato factory, which fits well into the overall picture of the beach.
At Vlichada beach, it is still quite quiet for Santorini and only at the beginning are umbrellas and sunbeds offered. In the further course of the beach, depending on the season, you can usually find a quiet spot, with a few meters distance to other beach visitors.
To the hinterland, the Vlichada beach, on its entire length, is uniquely beautiful bordered by a high washed out bright rock wall.
