Perissa stands out among the beaches in Santorini because of its geographic location. Perissa beach is a serene beach because it’s protected from the strong winds by the Ilias Mountains. The beach has fine dark sands with small huts perfect for a lazy summer weekend. Perissa is also as the place where St. Irene died during her exile. A church is dedicated to her as the island’s patron saint featuring a classic Byzantine architecture. You can also hike for an hour and visit the ruins of the Ancient Thira. There are numerous ruins that show that the place used to be a Doric City.
The hotels in Perissa are usually located facing the beach but if you want to save some money, better move away a little bit from the seaside and go to the discount hotels. Perissa is even better when you have a travel guide to get you through their historic places. You can get one in most of the Perissa cheap hotels and you can also book them in advance on Vayama.com.
