Only unique thing about this black sand beach is the black sand. Red beach will be better in term of scenery.

A pretty beach if you’ve time to spare but red beach is better if time is limited. Lots of beach seats but up to 5 euros each to use so unless you want to spend the day it’s not worth it. Some nice shops but...More

But if you are not into sun bathing (like me!) then it's just another beach, hence my score of 3 out of 5. It's billed as having 'black' sand and from afar (from Anciet Thera on top of the hill behind the town) it does...More

The bus from Fira in Santorini takes you right here in about 20 minutes. The sand is black and there are many hidden treasures to find (I went home with a lot of seaglass). There are a ton of restaurants but they are very pushy...More

Pretty beach with a town of souvenir shops and restaurants to go along with it. When we were there late October the surf was pretty strong so families with young kids be aware. Cute town, lovely church and on the bus line for Santorini

We didn’t rent a car because the bus is so easy to use. We went from Perissa Beach, to Fira and then to Oía, all with the bus and it was like 2-3 euros each way. Very easy and didn’t have to bother with driving

The boat trips are leaving from the port. Ususlly will have a transfer from your hotel or from a pick-up point, arranged by the travel office who sold you the boat trip.

I don’t think it’s walkable. Take a bus to a junction, there’s a walk to the lighthouse.
