Perissa, One Of Santorini’s Finest Villages

Written by in , Comments Off on Perissa, One Of Santorini’s Finest Villages

You would be hard-pressed to find someone who would disagree with the idea that Santorini is the most beautiful island in all of Greece. On that beautiful island of Santorini, you will find the village of Perissa, a very popular travel destination.

As you can imagine, a beautiful island probably has beautiful beaches, right? Well, look no further than Perissa Beach. The sand isn’t typically what you’re probably used to seeing, as you’ll be walking on black volcanic sand, but don’t let the color of the sand fool you. The beach itself is fantastic, and very clean. The Perissa Beach stretches for two miles along the coast with incredibly blue waters, as far as the eye can see.

Speaking of the water, it’s not often that you’ll hear anyone complain about the temperature of the water. You’ll also love the scenery, as the beach is right next to a giant rock mountain. There are plenty of beach beds with canopies for beachgoers to use, and there are several great bars, restaurants and bakeries within walking distance of the beach. Another great benefit to choosing Perissa Beach is how easily accessible it is. It is easy to get there by car, and public transportation is also available to you.

Being that Perissa is on the water, I’m sure you can imagine that diving is one of the most popular activities to pick up while you’re in the area. Luckily for you, you have some options if this is something that is of interest to you. The Mediterranean Dive Club is a great choice, as they provide all of the equipment that you need, they take you out to the dive site, and overall, they’re just really friendly and passionate about diving. Dive during the daytime or at night, and explore the many wonders of the sea!

Folks who have gone diving while visiting Santorini have also recommended Santorini Dive Center. This company is great for first-time divers, who may be a little nervous about the experience. Santorini Dive Center handles all newcomers with great care and sensitivity. They are both safe and professional, with a love and passion for nature. They’re a great choice for beginners, but also for experienced divers as well. You will never forget your first time exploring beneath the crystal clear waters off the coast of Santorini.

If you’re looking for other ways to kill some time, we recommend checking out Santorini Waterpark. It’s not very big, but it has enough to keep the kids happy for a day, with waterslides and pools. It’s a great place to relax and grab a bite to eat, while you kick back in the sun.

And here’s a little secret that could be a great benefit to you and your guests: rent an ATV. Getting around the island of Santorini can be a real pain sometimes, especially when it comes to trying to find parking. That’s why a lot of travelers rent scooters or quads to get around, and it’s a really good idea that can save you a lot of time. Mark’s Bike is a company that has been around for ten years, and has a good reputation on the island.
