Have you ever been to Santorini?

Wednesday, July 21, 2010


Monolithos is located behind the airport of Santorini, 9km away from Fira. It is a quite peaceful settlement with many hotels and lodgings. It has a well organized long beach with smooth black sand and particularly shallow waters, a lifeguard and a playground. The waters deepen gradually, but if you wish to swim without touching the sea bottom, you will have to swim a lot. The beach usually is very crowded since it’s the nearest beach to Fira connected with the local bus transportation network. Don’t worry, however. There is plenty of room for everyone. If you prefer team sports such as volleyball, soccer and basketball, you are in the right place as there are especially tailored areas on the sand.

Hi, welcome to blogging. I am an artist and traveler and last September I had the privlidge of teaching watercolor on the island of Santorini. It was great fun, and everywhere my students and I looked there was a painting. You can see the paintings I created on my website on the travel paintings page. You can also read about our adventures on Santorini on my blog Have Paints Will Travel. As you will see, we loved painting on Santorini. Sandy
