excellent black sand beach

The black sand, clear water and amazing mountain view made the beach an excellent place to enjoy the summer. Also it is know for excellent sun rise point.

This is the biggest beach we came across and the most 'user friendly' when it came to getting in and out, the depth of the sea, visibility, access and of course, space. When we flew in over it I thought we wouldn't visit as was bound to be busy due to all of those things. Yet when we stumbled upon... More

I recently returned from 5 days at Perissa beach Santorini disgusted at the dishonesty of this DELIMAR BAR & RESTAURANT establishment. After stopping by with friends for morning drinks we received an extra cocktail when we didn't order it, we had to tell the waiter to take it back on 3 occasions and replace with the milk shake that was...

This was my favourite beach we visited. Black sand is hot so make sure you have flip flops to get you to and from waters edge. You pay for the umbrella and two comfy padded beds below (Euro 10) for the whole day which was well worth it. At some other beaches you get these free BUT then are obliged... More

This is a black 'sand' beach of very small pebbles. Gets very hot in the sun. It shelves fairly deeply into the sea and there can be a strong undercurrent away from the beach, so watch the kids when they play in it. Water is beautiful and clear but also fairly chilly compared to other parts of Greece I have... More

Black sand, very hot! Need to wear something on your feet when on the sand or your feet will burn. Lovely clear water. Lots of restaurants and bars. Water sports. Really good.

The beaches have many lounge chairs and Umbrellas for rent. 8 euros for the whole day is pretty good. You can also eat at the beach side restaurant where the usage of these umbrella/chairs is free,

We stayed in Kamari but having got the water taxi to Perissa, found it to be quieter and more easy going. You are not troubled by beach vendors here and it's a lovely place to while away your day with a cocktail or glass of Mythos. The Appollon Taverna offered great beach service with wi-fi. Had lunch here each time... More
