White Beach Tours and Activities

star-4
15 Reviews
White Beach
Tucked away on the south coast of Santorini, White Beach (Aspri Paralia) is sheltered by chalk-grey cliffs. This minuscule strand is actually composed of coarse black—not white—sand, and liberally peppered with grey and white pebbles as well as massive white volcanic boulders. 

The Basics
Private and small-group catamaran cruises typically stop at White Beach. Underwater caves and rocky formations along the shoreline make the beach an excellent choice for snorkelers. Day trips and sunset sails, which often include a barbecue of fresh fish on board, tend to stop to swim and snorkel at White Beach and other quiet coves along the coastline. More active travelers can opt for a kayak tour, which grant you access to hidden inlets and caves.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • White Beach is not easy to access by land, making it a perfect spot for those who love sunbathing without the crowds. 
  • There are few facilities on the beach except sun loungers and umbrellas for hire, so take water, food, and sunblock when visiting.
  • Passengers must be agile enough to board and disembark on boat tours, so travelers with limited mobility should confirm accessibility before booking.
  • Most boat tours provide snorkeling gear, but bring your own swimsuit and towel. A hat and sunscreen is also recommended to stave off the unforgiving Mediterranean sun.

How to Get to There
White Beach can be reached by kayak or boat on a private tour or larger group cruise, which typically depart from Thira and Akrotíri. There’s also a hiking path from nearby Kambia beach, though it is one of the most difficult trails on the island and is not recommended for inexperienced hikers.

When to Get There
The beaches on Santorini are most crowded in summer, though White Beach is one of the quietest on the island. Visit the island in late spring or early fall, when temperatures are still warm enough to enjoy the beaches without the summer crowds.

Soaking in Santorini’s Hot Springs
Many Santorini boat tours also stop at the hot springs, located on the tiny islet of Palea Kameni—just off the coast of the larger volcanic island of Nea Kameni. Formed millenia ago by a volcanic explosion, continuous geothermal activity has maintained the water temperature at 30–35° C (86–95º F). The orange-tinged sulfuric spring waters are believed to be therapeutic for the skin and joints.
