life’s a beach!

by @according2kelly on July 25, 2007

we’ve spent the last couple of days hanging out at the beach. (too bad i finished harry potter, i could really use something to read.) the beaches here are incredible… we went to a “black beach.” instead of sand, the shore is just tiny black pebbles. up and down the entire beach were hundreds of beach clubs. umbrellas & lounge chairs all lined up for you and restaurants with waiters standing nearby waiting to fill every request! i wish the beaches back home were like this!

we also took a boat tour around the island & the surrounding islands. we got the opportunity to see the beauty from an entirely different angle. we swam in hot springs & visited several of the other beaches. everything was so beautiful… from the ocean, the town of santorini looked like snow on top of the mountains!

yesterday we took a ferry over to crete… can’t wait to explore the island!

Thanks so much for sharing snippets from your amazing travels--black beaches with waitera are quite a step up from the beaches I'm used to!! Enjoy the rest of your trip.

Sounds incredible! I'd go for just about any kind of beach if there were waiters standing by for my every whim!
