Vlychada And The Little Port
Today we suggest that you visit the dreamy beach of Vlychada. Either for swimming or simply walking along the beach, this place looks like it has come out of a science fiction movie. It’s located south of Perivolos and it’s going to enchant you with volcanic rocks all around it as well as an impressive sand wall carved by time, salt and the wind that has naturally divided the beach, turning one part into an isolated lunar landscape that gives couples or nudists the opportunity to enjoy moments of serenity away from the crowded parts of this black-sanded bay. On the organized part of the beach you may find deck chairs and umbrellas as well as a canteen that can meet all your needs for an extensive stay.
The Little Port Of Vlychada
Next to this enchanting beach you will find a picturesque, typical specimen of a Greek island landscape; the lovely, quaint little port of Vlychada. The whole scenery is simple, yet beautiful; small fishing boats and yawls in a deep blue space where visitors and locals can find safe harbor. The port has been identified as a fishing refuge and it is the only place on the island where one can dock safely during storms or even leave their boat unattended. You can admire the amazing view to the sea from one of several traditional little fish taverns located just over the port and taste unique local delicacies sitting by the waves! Near the port, there is also the Santorini Arts Factory (SAF), a multiplex with cultural and educational activities that has found a home at the old tomato factory of Vlychada and is definitely worth visiting.
