Why Go To Perivolos?

Perivolos offers a beach based holiday with guaranteed summer sunshine, warm clear water and a wide range of recreational activities on land and sea. A choice of nightlife is available from romantic meals beside the beach to lively bars and clubs. Shopping is limited to holiday essentials and souvenirs but Fira with its vast variety of shops is only a short bus ride away.

Perivolos is popular with a wide range of holidaymakers, from families to couples young and old and to young singles groups. Water sports enthusiasts will find a variety of activities to occupy their days.

When To Go To Perivolos

The Perivolos holiday season lasts from April until October when the temperature ranges from twenty to thirty degrees. Summer is the most popular time to visit the island.

Perivolos - The Place

Perivolos lies between Perissa and Vlihada on the south east coast of Santorini which has a beautiful coastline. The long beach is lighter in colour than its neighbour and offers safe bathing in warm clear waters as well as a wide variety of water sports including jet skiing and scuba diving. Many bars, cafés and tavernas line the beach providing daylong refreshments. There are many small restaurants serving a wide choice of menu from fast foods to traditional cuisine. The eateries are interspersed with small beach and gift shop selling the usual variety of holiday mementoes. For more variety, the larger resort of Perissa is a short bus ride away, or for the more energetic, a stroll along the beach.

A local bus will take you to Fira where you will find a labyrinth of stepped, cobbled streets filled with shops of every description. The town is built on a hillside and the stepped streets are difficult for those with problems of mobility. Most visitors also take a trip to Oia, a beautiful town in the daylight but truly glorious when the setting sun transforms it, basking as it does in a warm orange glow.

Perivolos Nightlife

Perivolos is a quiet relaxed resort and this is reflected in its nightlife. It is more up-market than neighbouring Perissa and peaceful evenings can be spent in restaurants or tavernas overlooking the sea. There are also a number of lively bars with music and discos.

Perivolos Shopping

Perivolos shopping is limited to supermarkets providing holiday essentials, as well as the usual number of gift and souvenir shops. Fira, the capital, is only a fifteen kilometre bus ride to the north-west. Here you will find hundreds of small shops in its narrow cobbled and stepped streets including an amazing number of jewellers at the top of the town near the Church and the Dominican Convent.

Perivolos Eating

Perivolos has many tavernas, cafes, bars and restaurants which provide a wide range of food to accommodate most tastes. Traditional Greek food relies heavily on fish simply cooked and is quite delicious. Moussaka is another Greek favourite made from minced lamb and aubergines. International cuisine is also available in the larger restaurants. Fast food stalls such as Souvlatzidiki sell takeaway souvlakis, a type of kebab. For a more substantial snack these are sometimes wrapped in pita bread and called gyros. The Santorini wines are inexpensive and very palatable.
