Monolithos is located near the airport of Santorini, 9km away from Fira. It is a peaceful settlement with many hotels and lodgings. It has a well organized long beach with smooth black sand and particularly shallow waters, a lifeguard and a playground. It is also a good spot for surfing and kite-surfing if the weather allows it.
Also, in Monolithos, you will find the only tomato factory that is still operating in Santorini and belongs to the Association Cooperatives of Theraic Products SantoWines (photo below)
