Nice Beach, very hot because it's black, so you need sandals! If you need a sunbed or parasol, you need to pay for, unless you bring your own. But prices are not expensive if you plan staying the whole day.

Very long beach with plenty of activities, also in October. The sea is very clean with lots of little fishes. The best beach in Santorini.

This is not a typical post card tropical white sand beach but it’s wonderful in it’s own way. The water was very clean.

Volcanic black sand (actually is iron and other minerals) combined with clean crystal waters of eagean sea! Lot of beachbars in the area and local taverns!

This is a MUST see beach. We took the bus from Stepfani and arrived to the most CLEAN amazing beach. It's worth the bus trip, spend the day, have lunch, walk around and stop in the shops, everybody is very friendly

We were staying in Perissa which is much much busier, this end of the beach is much nicer. Weekends can be busy along the whole beach but it adds to the atmosphere. We came to this beach 4 times in total and loved it. The...More

The black beaches go on for a long way. We enjoyed the part of beach called Perivolos because it did not seem as crowded. The water was clear and the waves were just enough to make it fun. Water shoes are a good idea because...More

Although the sand in Santorini is black and not so nice as other greek isles the water is so clear and amazing. We loved it here.

Ok. It was a Sunday. The beach and the sea are fine but the massive amount of sun beds crammed relentlessly together were a downer for me. Just too many people to be enjoyable.

You can find something within 15 to 30 gbp. Don't get too big a car, get a small economy one: roads are small, you'll never be able to go more than 70 kph. Buses work well if you're on a budget, but you won't be able to get... More
