The beaches of Akrotiri
In Akrotiri are some of the best beaches on our island. On the one hand, the wonderful southern and windy beaches such as Kokkini Paralia, Aspri Paralia, Mesa Pigadia and Kampia and on the other side of the island are the beaches overlooking the magical caldera like the Caldera beach and Panagia of Balos.
Kokkini Paralia (Red Beach) because of the rock that covers it. Swimming in its clear waters you can admire its beautiful scenery.
Aspri Paralia (White Beach), named after its white colour, with crystal clear waters and white pebbles.
Mesa Pigadia and Kambia are ideal beaches for nature lovers and people looking for absolute tranquility. The whole area has undersea speleological formations for exploration enthusiasts.
The Caldera Beach. The beach has a beautiful view of the volcano and the caldera, ideal for relaxation. The view of the caldera makes swimming a unique experience.
The "Panagia of Balos" beach on the Caldera side is a quiet and small beach with an exceptional caldera goddess, Thirasia, the volcano. There are two small chapels, one built on a rock next to the waves.
