If you stay in Fira or Oia there are going to be tons of travel agencies trying to sell you "tours" to white, black or red sand beach. DONT do it! Come here or Perivolos Beach instead. You would think the reason there is a...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...More

Certainly not the best beach in Santorin...sad, grey, old materials (matresses etc...) Nothing to compare with the stunning Red Beach !!

The bus from Fira in Santorini takes you right here in about 20 minutes. The sand is black and there are many hidden treasures to find (I went home with a lot of seaglass). There are a ton of restaurants but they are very pushy...More

Pretty beach with a town of souvenir shops and restaurants to go along with it. When we were there late October the surf was pretty strong so families with young kids be aware. Cute town, lovely church and on the bus line for Santorini

Lovely long beach with plenty of choice of loungers, their free if you have lunch in the restaurant behind you.... the only reason I didn’t give it 5 stars is it’s a little big and busy for my personal tastes, preferring the much quieter Akro...More

It’s a lot better than kamari beach, and it is a lot calmer, and quicker. Perissa beach looked more welcoming with bars and restaurants across the road from the beach. Great beach to chill out, and away from everything.

This beautiful 7 km black sand beach is in front of honeymoon beach hotel that I have vacationed at for 20 years. A beautiful boardwalk with lots of shopping and nite clubs, water sports galore. You will return here👍❤️

Just a bus ride away from Santorini centre! Spend a few hours relaxing on this black beach. The mountains are your backdrop...the black volcanic sand your carpet... The water is clean and refreshing. Rent a sun bed for €5 and relax! Plenty of restaurants close...More

We didn’t rent a car because the bus is so easy to use. We went from Perissa Beach, to Fira and then to Oía, all with the bus and it was like 2-3 euros each way. Very easy and didn’t have to bother with driving

The boat trips are leaving from the port. Ususlly will have a transfer from your hotel or from a pick-up point, arranged by the travel office who sold you the boat trip.

I don’t think it’s walkable. Take a bus to a junction, there’s a walk to the lighthouse.
