Holidays in
Perivolos Beach

The party heartland of Santorini

Sunshine, warm seas, buzzing bars, great food and a party atmosphere – Perivolos Beach holidays have all this and more. The most cosmopolitan resort on the southeastern coast of Santorini, it’s certainly easy on the eye, with its long, broad, black volcanic beach. And the local bars and upscale hotels, many of which host DJ-led pool parties, go all out to ensure that the nights are just as fun as the days.

Holidays to Perivolos Beach aren’t just about beach days and bar nights, though – active travellers will love the thriving water sports scene here, including the opportunity to get out and jet ski to beaches further along the coast. Beach volleyball is also a big deal, with organised tournaments that you can get involved with. And for excursions across the island, you’re well placed to hire a car or a boat and see what else Santorini has to offer.
