|Santorini Beaches on the North Coast :
| The beaches in the northern
part of Santorini are harder to find and and have a distinctive
beauty. In the past they were known and frequented only
by local residents. In recent days they have also been
discovered by visitors to the island.
in Oia & Ammoudi
|Katharos beach can be found
by driving towards Ammoudi Port. It is quiet, with black
pebbles & stones. An unusual feature are the two rocks
that stand in the middle. It will take you about 3 to
5 minutes to walk to the beach from the parking place.
|Ammoudi port can be reached
by car (you have to circle round the bottom road of Oia
village), by walking down the 235 steps, or by catching
a ride on the back of a mule. It is possible to swim in
the harbour, but the best place is to go is along the
path past the taverns on the waterfront, where you will
find an excellent place for diving off the rocks. Recommended
for strong swimmers.

Armeni has a small beach.
There are 2 ways to get there. You can either go on
foot or by mule and descend 291 steps, or opt for the
easier solution which is to get a ride in one of the
small boats leaving from Ammoudi port. There is a small
tavern for quiet meals.
Between Ammoudi and Armeni is 'Armenaki'. Climbing
down is hard work. You can swim, but for the moment
there are no shops or restaurants.
