Vlichada Beach

One of the most beautiful beaches in Greece, Vlychada Beach is famous for its natural beauty, including large rock formations, pebbled, black sand, and moon-shaped landscape. This thick lunar landscape formed by the sediment is unlike anything else in the entire world. The gay section is located on the far end of the beach where many men are sunbathing nude and not. The beach is located in South Santorini, approximately a 20 minute drive from downtown Santorini. The beach itself is fairly easy to reach, it might just be a bit of a trek to get to the gay section, depending on where you park.

Also known as the Moon Beach, a well-deserved nickname for its spectacular lunar landscape, Vlychada rests on the southern coast of the island. It is a long beach caressed by the waves of the sea, which, together with the wind and rain, created the mesmerizing sculptures in the rock formations that separate the beach from the rest of the island. Also, some more secluded parts of Vlychada are favored by nudists.

The moon beach of the island, with its dramatically-eroded pumice cliffs, Vlychada is worth a visit even if you are not a beach-goer. The lunar landscape of the beach makes Vlychada a favorite attraction with photographers too. This is where you will find that perfect Instagram moment.
