Trip Planner: Europe / Greece / South Aegean / Cyclades / Santorini / Perissa / Perissa Black Sand Beach
One of Santorini's black volcanic beaches, Perissa Black Sand Beach remains popular for its calm waters and abundance of sea life. Lined with rustic seafood taverns, the beach offers you a chance to snorkel or windsurf the turquoise sea during the day, and explore the island's popular dining and entertainment options at night. The site lies in the shadows of the Profitis Ilias, a 560 m (1,800 ft) high mountain that protects the coastline from the harsh Aegean winds. A rugged trail starts just above the beach and leads to the ruins of an ancient Christian church, which you can explore on foot or by riding a donkey.

Perissa Black Sand Beach reviews
All in all..this is the best beach in Santorini! Clean water, quiet place with a lot of amenities, bars and shops. more »
The beach isnt soft sand but sharp grit that hurts your feet, once into the water the sand stops and your on very slippery rock that is impossible to keep your feet on, first wave and you'll fall so..... more »
Beautiful beach. We were here before the tourist season started (end of Feb) and had the beach to ourselves. Walked from Perivolos to Perissa all along the beach, it was heavenly
Wonderful beach to spend your vacation. It's really beautiful with black sand, the water will get too much cold in the evening. Different street restaurants with private seaside chairs and umbrellas. It's better to try at daytime. Very peaceful area with good food and nice people. There are homestays and resorts near to the beach. Loved it
