Nice beach but very windy and huge waves in winter and most shops along the waterfront are closed. Definitely a summer destination.

This was a favorite of our whole trip. We took an ATV here twice for the day and parked it right outside of the "beach Bar' free chairs for patrons. We ate and drank and sunbathed. it was very chill and not touristy at all.

Beaytiful place, no ricks at the point we sat and with many bars and restaurants. It is not the best beach, but is is on Santorini.

Red, white, and black beaches are all worth seeing once, but come to Perivolos for a stay "at the beach." Try lunch at Sea Side.

It is long, with a promenade full of restaurants. I can imagine it can get pretty busy during the season. Sand is black, with some rocks and water shoes are useful, although not completely necessary. There are options for eating, drinking, beach volley or watersports....More

This black sand beach has a wide expanse of sand with sun beds, and handy taverns across the street for drinks and snacks. It's perfect for swimming, relaxing and enjoying the beautiful unobstructed views of the surrounding mountains. I wish we had more time to...More

We stayed right across from the beach, and this is just a lovely beach. Not crowded at all! The sand is 'soft' and of black sand, but be careful with children, the waves are strong, and the sand sucks you in !

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
