We’re used to more soft, golden sand when it comes to the beach but who says black sand can’t be as beautiful?
Santorini is an island in the southern Aegean Sea, about 200 km southeast from Greece’s mainland. It is the largest island of a small, circular archipelago and forms the southernmost member of the Cyclades group of islands. In the southern corner of the island is Perissa, which is a seven kilometre long black sandy beach and seaside village. The dark sea and the surrounding green make it one of the most beautiful on the island and it attracts thousand of visitors each year. A feature that makes Perissa unique (besides the crystal water and smooth volcanic sand) is the fact that is the best protected beach from the summer Aegean winds.
So we’ve got the beachers and the bathers covered but what about you surfers? Well, Greece is not the best place to surf unfortunately but you can still catch a few waves in Summer. If you ever make your way over to the island, you should try some windsurfing.
