Hotels in Monolithos, Santorini Island

Monolithos is the perfect place for those who want a nice relaxing holiday. The village itself can be found on the south coast of the island of Santorini and has a black beach made of fine sand. The water is crystal clear and is a lovely, clean place for swimming. Because the waters here are so shallow it is perfectly safe for children to play. The beach can become a little busy during the high season but still retains its laid back atmosphere. It is possible to hire sunbeds and play volleyball on the sand if you wish.

The village of Monolithos is named after the large rock ‘Monolitho’ that is the foundation for the church of Ahios Ioannis. It is also home to the only tomato canning factory on the island. The village is just a short drive from the airport so transfers to your accommodation are very quick. It is also just 8 kilometres from Fira, the main town and capital of Santorini. There is a bus service that runs from the village into the town which is a great place for shopping and sightseeing.

There is a great selection of tavernas and fish restaurants in Monolithos, and the village is home to some beautiful hotels and smaller family run studios and apartment buildings. Monolithos is considered a family resort due to the variety of activities available including children’s playground, and the safe beach. The wind can get quite strong in this area however and this could make a few waves on the usually gentle waters.

Monolithos is a charming village that, like the rest of the island, is friendly and welcoming to visitors. It is the ideal backdrop for any holiday and the locals will be happy to help with ideas for sightseeing and dining. Anyone taking a holiday in Monolithos is sure to return home with many happy memories of a wonderful getaway.
