Monolithos is on the south east
coastline of Santorini. The village took its name from the
large rock 'Monolitho' upon which stands the church of Agios
Monolithos is an ideal place for a quiet relaxing holiday,
with crystal clear waters and a fine black sand beach. The
shallow wading waters make it deal for children - plus there
is a playground and a volleyball area on the beach. Some areas
are organized so you can hire sun beds and umbrellas. There
are several good fish taverns & restaurants.
Monolithos is just below the airport. You can get there by driving
through Karterados village all the way down to the seashore,
and turning right along the dirt road below the cliffs. The
more orthodox way is to get to the Messaria crossroad, drive
along the airport road and keep going till you get to the sea.
Monolithos has the only Tomato Canning Factory is still operational
on the island. The factory belongs to the Cooperative Association
of Theraic Products.
