Colombo hid in a bay at the eponymous cape, which is located 10 kilometers from the capital of the island of Santorini, Fira.

Perissa is an excellent Santorini beach with volcanic black sand, stretching along the coast of the Aegean Sea for almost 7 kilometers. It is located in the resort of Perissa, 15 kilometers southeast of Fira.

Red Beach – the most famous and, according to most tourists, the most beautiful beach in Santorini – is located 12 kilometers from Fira, near the excavations of Akrotiri. The sand on Red Beach beach is brick-red in color; In the same color painted rocks, densely encircling the beach, from which, with a strong wind carries a nasty red dust, falling asleep all around. By the way, because of the surrounding rocks access to the sea is somewhat difficult, which does not interfere with beach lovers – at the height of the season on a narrow coastal strip, the apple has nowhere to fall. Near the shore in the sea there are small rocky islets – they are sent to sunbathe those who did not have enough space on the shore. Nudists on the beach almost no, but you can meet a lot of ladies who prefer to sunbathe topless.
