Make your way to the nearby beaches of Armenaki or Katharos to soak in the sun and splash in pristine surf, or visit the legendary Red and White beaches near Akrotiri. Spend a day out on the Mediterranean flying over the waves atop the Iguana speed boat, or enjoy a relaxing day on the decks of the luxurious Alexandros yacht. Sail aboard a catamaran and take a scenic sail around the island, through the caldera, and to the tiny volcanic islands of Nea and Palea Kammeni and Thirassia.
