Perissa is a seaside village on the south east coast of Santorini with several kilometers of black sand beach. Towering over the beach on the north side is the mountain of Mesa Vouno, site of Ancient Thira. Perissa connects with Perivolos, and the collective area is longest stretch of beach on the island.
Both beaches are organized. Perivolos in particular is a more up-market dinning and clubbing scene, an extension of Santorini’s fine dinning and nightlife by day.
