Nice beach, worth to visit. We visited the Perissa beach after our lunch at the Acropolis restaurant in order to relax by the sea. The location is fine, the parking was free and the sea was great.

This is busy And is a little bit shabby - I would keep travelling up the coast road to Pevilas - this has a large range of nice places to eat and drink and the beach is clean and the water is accessible

We visited in August and rented so chairs and umbrellas. The sun was hot and the water was surprisingly cold. It ended up being a great combination. Give the water a few minutes (after you get in to your chest, it all feels good!). The...More

After a hectic day in Santorini's picturesque towns it's lovely to relax in the iridescent waters and enjoy the black sand beach.

There's a straight bus that runs from Fira bus station to the beach! If I'm not wrong it runs every 20 minutes.

Many good questions... Too far away from perissa to fira by foot. At this time of the year maybe better to book before. At night it is also far from perissa to fira or Oía, but Fira is nearer. Do not miss the sunset... More
