Many excellent restaurants along this stretch of beach. Most offering free sun beds provided you buy a drink. Safe swimming for children. Black volcanic sand.

Hi, I am visiting Santorini next week and would like to know about bathing beaches which are safe to splash around in with the kids. Is it possible to splash around in the water at the Perissa beach. Any suggestions would be helpful. Thanks
