Perivolos beach is officially the longest beach on Santorini with a length of almost 3 km and is directly connected to Perissa beach, which together forms a continuous strip of flat sand more than 5 km long. It is located in the small resort of Agios Georgios, but part of it extends into Perissa.

Beach and swimming

Perivolos is slightly quieter than neighbouring Perissa, but that's where the big differences end. This beach too is covered in black volcanic sand, is long and wide enough and doesn't get crowded even in high season. The entrance to the sea is quite steep, but the waters are calm and large waves are rare.

Almost the entire length of Perivolos beach is lined with sunbed and umbrella hire, various water activities and a small road with many tavernas, bars and restaurants. Overall, the environment is very quiet, but at the same time with full tourist facilities.
