Koloumpos is one of the most characteristic beaches in Santorini. It is an non-organized beach that, although so beautiful, not so many tourists visit it, probably because it is at an isolated part of the island of Santorini, while most other beaches (Kamari, Red Beach, Vlthada, etc) are at the southern part. Some people would say it is a deserted beach but, I would not say this since I have seen bathers over there even in November. The most characteristic of the beach is that, at its southernmost point, it ends up to a huge cave, offering shadow and charm to the scenery. To reach the beach, drive towards Oia. About 4klm after Thira (Fira), you will see a small sign towards Koloumpos (Κολούμπος in Greek) on the right side. Head down and, after 1.5 klm turn left. It is another 1.5-2klm from there until you see a hotel and a small car park opposite where you will probably see more cars. Take tha small path to the beach and you are there.
