- Mesa Pigadia Beach - This beach is situated in the southwest of the island of Santorini off the main road to Akrotiri close to the lighthouse. You can reach the beach over a dirt track. You can get there on foor but also with a good car or for instance a quad. The distance from the main road is aproxemately 1 kilometer. On Mesa Pigadia it is a little bit more quiet than on some of the other beaches because it is more out of the route. The beach is not very large and in consists of sand with (mostly) pebbles and also with larger stones on it. Mesa Pigadia Beach is surrounded by high white cliffs. There are a couple of cave-houses that are sometimes used to house fishing boats (during the winter time) and "syrmata", houses that are built into the rocks. You can also reach Mesa Pigadia Beach by excursion boat from Akrotiri. On the beach of Mesa Pigadia there is also a taverna and there are a couple of sunbeds. In our point of view a very picturesque and secluded, lovely quiet beach, one of our favorites.
