Having travelled the whole island we found this to be the best beach on the island. The sun loungers belong to the tavernas who allow you to use then so long as you use their taverna, be it a small beer to a full meal. Most have a beach shower and a little changing box. Most also have free wifi which can be very helpful if like us you need to check emails etc.
Perrisa beach runs into Perivolos beach which make it one big strip, there are gaps where you can sit on your towel if you wish.
There are a lot of Massage girls and boys, and others selling trinkets which can be pian as there are so many of them, but they do move on after a "no" .
The water was nice but I would recommend water shoes as the rock underneath can get slippery. In parts it is like solid rock and if you go out further there is a shelf which is good for snorkelling.
Overall it is a good size beach with plenty of room for all.

It was a nice beach but the views here pale in comparison to the caldera side. Would recommend visit here for only a few hours but stay on the caldera side as the views don't even compare

Lots of little shops and Tavernas. Fresh fish dishes were a delight and reasonably priced! Lovely people. Water great for swimming but be aware this is a volcanic stone beach!
Situated under the mountains with a lovely view of the Monastry.
