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.

Ein schöner Strand, welcher einem kleine Geschäfte oder auch Restaurants bietet. Wir fühlten uns hier sehr wohl. Der Sand ist sehr fein. more »A beautiful beach that offers a small shop or restaurants. We felt very comfortable here. The sand is very fine.
Lovely beech. With good views.. good to watch sunrise.. Can burn your feet on hot day.
I would suggest using Perissa Bay Hotel, you can sit and have a drink, something to eat, free WI-FI, free beach umbrella if you want it. (They will serve you on the beach) Free sunbeds, free parking, only free beer missing. €2.50 for a large beer, ask for Niko, nothing is too much trouble.
