Red Beach / Black Beach / White Beach
In Santorini, there are 3 wonderful beachs that you have to visit. In this time, I came to Santorini by myself, I only went to red beach with my friend who I met in Oia, which means I didn’t go to white beach and black beach. But I would love to go Santorini with my lover in the future and have a marvelous memory with him. Therefore, I will tell you some simple informations of white beach and black beach.
White beach is one of the most charming beaches on Santorini, located on the southern coast of the island, immediately after the red sand beach.
The white beach is named after the white cliffs that protrude behind the small coast, so it can only be reached by boat from Akrotiri port or nearby red sand beaches. The journey takes only 15 minutes.
What to do in White Beach?
The beautiful bay of White Beach that is small and uninhabited, 15 km from the island’s capital Fira. It is composed of black coarse sand and large white and gray pebbles, which is a fantastic idea for snorkeling that you can explore many corners of the coast. There are no facilities, only some sunbeds with umbrellas and a small, cave canteen for the necessary supplies. Owing to its nature, the White Beach is not that popular so it remains quiet and isolated creating an ideal site for relaxation and peaceful moments.
No doubt, the white beach is one of reason that I will come to Santorini again and I will back with my partner. lol

Black Sand Beach
Most of Santorini is located at the rim of a volcano, and everywhere you go, you will be reminded of the island’s history of volcanic activity, especially at Black Sand Beach. The volcanic activity on the island is evidenced at this beach in the form of its unique, black sand. Over the centuries, the molten rock from various volcanic eruptions hardened and then eventually broke down due to erosion. As the name implies, the sand is dark and mysterious, while the ocean is beautifully clear and blue. This palette of contrasting colors creates ideal gazing or photo taking opportunities.

The tavernas lining the huge stretch of sand have plenty of sunbeds and umbrellas for rent, many of which you can use if you order food.

2. Taking bus from Fira to Red Beach as I did. You can take the bus of the route Fira > Akrotiri. The Red Beach is 10 – 15 minutes away on foot. Fira is where the central bus station of the island is located. There are bus connections between this bus station and the most areas of the island. There are buses to Akrotiri approximately every 1.5 hours.
Tip: Since buses don’t always stop in every scheduled stop of their itinerary, our advice to visitors is to inform the driver about their final destination, so that he makes a stop there.
它被廣泛描述為一種壯觀的，親切的，獨特的和可愛的，甚至我也是。難怪人們會如此迫不得已地去看Red Beach。當我剛到達紅海灘時，我說的第一句話是：“這紅海灘比我見過的還要美麗，怎麼會如此壯觀呢！ ”如果您問我第一次來這裡時必須看哪一個，我會告訴您紅色沙灘絕對是我的首選。
2.和我一樣，從費拉（Fira）到紅灘（Red Beach）坐公共汽車。您可以乘坐Fira> Akrotiri路線的巴士。紅海灘距離酒店有10-15分鐘的步行路程。費拉（Fira）是島上中央巴士站的所在地。該巴士站與島上大部分地區之間有巴士連接。大約每1.5個小時就有一輛前往Akrotiri的巴士。
