Hi there, friends!
This little island is known for its endless blue and white facades and gorgeous sunsets, but it also has some hidden gems that Victoria and I found! Vlychada Beach is a black sand beach in the southern part of Santorini, Greece. It was so unique. The cliffs behind the beach make it look a little out of this world and is the source of this beaches’ nickname, Moon Beach. We enjoyed how quiet it was. However, I definitely need to let you know that there are some locals that are proud to sun themselves sans suits. Ha! The sun is super strong in Santorini, so also be sure to bring sunnies, a large brim hat and sunscreen. Here are some of my favorites of those accessories:
This maxi dress is a repeat offender and I can’t be sorry about it! It’s such a practical purchase for a late Spring or Summer getaway. It’s under $100 and comes in so many colors. You may recognize it from one of my other Santorini blog posts’ … you can find it HERE. So many of you asked me about the head scarf I’m wearing when y’all saw it on Snapchat. The one I’m wearing is a vintage Hermes scarf that I bought while I was in Nice, France but have linked a few in the widget below!
TIP: If you can locate a cheap beach chair on your way out to Vlychada, I’d highly recommend one as the sand and rocks get quite hot.
I hope y’all are having a great week so far! Stay tuned for the big Santorini travel diary + packing guide that will go live tomorrow morning! 🙂 Let me know if you have any questions about my trip or Santorini so I can make sure to address them in the post! Appreciate you stopping by today! xo.
