Perissa is a fun Santorini beach town with plenty of good restaurants, low-key bars, and a small party scene (beach-style, not clubby). This strip of black sand beach spreads along 3 or 4 kms, peppered with hotels and restaurants – at some indistinct point it turns into Perivolos and then into Agios Georgios, but it all feels like one long spread. The south end at Agios Georgios Beach is home to a cluster of fine dining restaurants and luxury beach clubs. The sand in Perissa is much finer than you’ll find in pebbly Kamari, just up the coast (getting sandier as you move south towards Perivolos and Agios Georgios), and the swimming is excellent. It’s also farther from Fira than Kamari, which makes visiting the caldera a bit more of an outing.
