Probably the best beach in Santorini. Powder black sand. Many beach bars with amenities and also a public area. I saw many showers available. Many stores and restaurants on the beach. The water was much warmer and clearer than I expected. The cliffs at the...More

We had a great time in this beach. Clear water, clean beach. The black sand/pebbles can get very hot so you’d either need water shoes or your flip flops until you reach the water. Nevertheless my favorite beach in santorini. People are friendly and service...More

Perivolos is one of the most popular beach of Santorini. Due to black sand it becomes very difficult to walk on the beach without proper sandals. The charges for sunbeds are reasonable. There is a wide choice of bars and restaurant.

Loved this beach! Stayed in Kamari Beach but decided to spend the day here based on reviews. Great atmosphere, water was fantastic, go to Margarita for food and your sun bed and umbrella.

One of the best beaches in Santorini. Go early to find a set of sunbeds. The prices are reasonable. Also, a lot of restaurants are nearby so its easy to have lunch after the beach

The sand is smoother here than the parissa side. Being black it is far warmer than your average beach on your feet so bring some footwear. Nice swim, with good depth close off the shore

Gets very hot to walk on the sand late morning until about 6pm, however, the water is crystal clear and fantastic for swimming.

There were some people snorkeling. We did snorkel for a little bit. There is not much to see but little fish here and there.

You can find something within 15 to 30 gbp. Don't get too big a car, get a small economy one: roads are small, you'll never be able to go more than 70 kph. Buses work well if you're on a budget, but you won't be able to get... More
