It's not overcrowded, which is always an amazing thing. Beautiful sand and waters. Very clean. Great beach for a weekend getaway or a full vacation. The closest hotel is Blue Diamond Bay. Restaurants and local shops are close by. Attracts with its simplicity.

It was deserted as everything doesn't open for another week. But pretty cool black sand beach, without a doubt.

This beach is so beautiful, clean, and different from what you would expect of a beach. It is serene and relaxing and must see while in santorini. Make sure you take sandals with you because the sand is black and will burn your feet.

Black sand is amazing, the sea is calm and warm. The only annoying thing is that there are lots of people walking up and down the beach trying to sell stuff such as sunglasses etc. Beach is opposite all the main restaurants and bars.

Fun family day at Perissa beach! We stayed in Oia and chose to ride the bus - see a bit more of the island on our way to the beach. We ate lunch in Fira before and then spent the afternoon at Perissa beach. Pretty blue clear water and black sand.

Black sand beach, you can walk along for miles. Lots of restaurants wher you can sit in beach chairs, order drinks and food. No one bothered you. Very hot so enjoyed the shade of umbrellas. Water was good, couple of days were the water was rough and no swimming allowed, lifeguard on duty. Totally relaxing watching the waves. Horses riding... More
