The black stones get warm in the sun, and the water is super clear which makes for a very relaxing place. Good footwear is essential as the stones can be uncomfortable to walk on and can also be quite warm (if you go late in the day it's not too bad). We didn't swim here but saw people who were, the beach probably gets quite crowded compared to others on the island. If you have been to the south shore of Santorini, you won't be particularly impressed with this beach.
While driving, we found a side road to Elinta Bay on the west side of the island, near Anavatos and Avgonima. Almost no people, great beach, the water gets water as you swim out to the bay. Think of this as a cool alternative - almost certainly less crowded!
