Stretching along Santorini’s southeast coast, the black sands of Perivolos Beach (Paralia Perivolos) are broad enough to accept several neat rows of sun loungers without anyone feeling hemmed in. It lies in between the beaches of Perissa and Agios Georgios, with little to separate them other than their separate names, making one long ribbon of sand several kilometres in length.
In addition to sun loungers and umbrellas, beachgoers can enjoy numerous water sports, with jet skis, windsurf gear and scuba diving equipment all available to hire. Other ways to stay active are with its beach volleyball courts.
Perivolos Beach probably isn’t the best choice if you’re looking to relax with a good book, since the bars that line this strip of lava sand pump out loud music much of the day. However, since it has plenty of facilities nearby and is watched over by lifeguards it remains a popular choice with local and visiting families.
The longest black beach on the island, Perivolos Beach also has some of the finest sand, meaning most visitors think nothing of walking barefoot.
