Perissa beach

The beautiful Perissa Beach lies at the base of Mesa Vouno Mountain that separates Perissa from Kamari and on its top you can admire the eminent archaeological site of ancient Thera and a superb view. It is about 13 kilometers away from Fira, on the southeast coast of Santorini and is easily accessible by car or bus. The scenery that the black lava sand along with the sandy sea bottom and the dark blue, crystal clear waters compose is impressive. It is one of the longest and most famous beaches in Santorini, a characteristic sight of the volcanic island.

It is a fully organized, cosmopolitan beach with an abundance of comfy lounging chairs, umbrellas and other amenities, like lifeguards, showers and a playground. It is worth mentioning that it has received the Blue Flag award since it is very clean and tidy. At the end of the beach there is a suggested diving location if you are bold enough to dive. You can choose from a wide variety of water sports, from wind surfing and parasailing to jet skiing, canoeing and banana boats that will rock your experience. In addition, there are two diving centers for fascinating explorations. Finally, a wonderful water park with three water slides and pools offers fun and entertainment to children and grown-ups as well.

You can unwind and enjoy your day at the plenty seaside cafes and bars and taste traditional dishes in the several taverns and restaurants you can find. Its cosmopolitan character becomes obvious day and night in the lively clubs and beach bars, where many young people gather. Nevertheless, the beach is a must and ideal for old and young alike as it has something for everybody.
