Updated On:

Written By: Pavlos

Perissa is one of the best beaches in Santorini, along with Perivolos and Kamari. Perissa and Perivolos are basically the same long black beach.

Perissa is the famous black beach of Santorini and it is the best option for families or more affordable accommodation as hotels and rooms there are generally cheaper than in Fira, Oia or Imerovigli.

Perissa is the best beach in Santorini. It is a small beach village on the southeastern side of the island with lots of restaurants, shops, beach clubs and general amenities that make it a famous family (but not only) holiday spot in Santorini.

Here is Perissa on Google Maps.

BEST HOTEL IN PERISSA: Anastasia Princess Luxury Residences

Perissa is a very long and generally wide beach with a seaside street full of shops, tavernas and hotels that is buzzing in the hot season, but it’s pretty quiet and deserted between November and April.

Perissa is a long and wide black beach with lots of beach clubs and the famous St George church with its blue dome.

Staying in Perissa PROS 🟢:

  • there are lots of restaurants, tavernas and beach clubs with a great vibe (not crazy parties but more on the chill-out side even though there are some famous DJ’s playing there sometimes), all within walking distance
  • there are many family-friendly amenities and wet sports options like kite surfing, jet skiing or even banana rafting
  • the local bus is very frequent and there are more than 1 bus stops where you can basically hop on and go anywhere to the island (through Fira though)
  • you will have the best of Santorini on your doorstep
  • hotels and rooms are generally less expensive in Perissa and Perivolos

Staying in Perissa CONS 🔴:

  • you won’t be close to the famous Santorini views of the volcano and the sunset; if you are looking to visit Oia or Fira you have to take the bus or drive for about 20 mins to enjoy the famous sunsets
  • there are not that many options for nightlife even though most of the beach clubs stay open till late night; if you are looking for clubs and proper bars you have to go to Fira where the Santorini nightlife is awesome.
  • Perissa is generally not considered a very picturesque town compared to Oia or Fira
  • Perissa is definitely considered less romantic

If you are looking to be close to the famous volcano and caldera views of Santorini then should better stay at Imerovigli or Oia.

CONCLUSION

I believe that the best hotel in Perissa is Anastasia Princess Luxury Suites but there are so many good accommodation options that you won’t be disappointed. Most of the hotels in Perissa are meters away from the beach but also offer private pools and beautiful terraces. Perissa is ideal for families with young kids as the beach offers the perfect playground (but you have to be careful during the hot times of the day in the summer as the black pebbles can become extremely hot). there are so many great places to eat and so many things to do in Perissa that kids will never be bored. However, indeed, you won’t have the famous volcano views if you stay in Perissa or Perivolos. Still, nothing stops you from visiting Oia, Fira or Imerovigli and taking all those beautiful pictures you see all over Instagram.
