Perissa, one of the island's liveliest beaches, is located about 10-15 minutes away from Fira.
To come here, you will have to take the road that lead to Emporio and not turn towards Perivolos. It is ideal for every target group, but especially for the action loving types, since it offers an abundance of choices for water sports.
Perissa's main advantage is that it's not particularly affected by the winds. Here you will also find the island's only water park.
The beach is well organised and you will have many alternatives in terms of beach bar-restaurants.
