Located on Santorini’s south coast, Vlychada is home to one of the island’s finest beaches. This long stretch of soft sand is fringed by volcanic rocks and crystal-clear waters. For sun seekers, it’s pure bliss: laid-back loungers, a stylish beach bar, and – at the nearby boutique hotel – a world-class spa. If you’re feeling more adventurous, hop aboard a yacht and explore hidden coves. Or head inland to the Bronze Age settlement of Akrotiri.
