Black Sand Beach

famous for the black volcanic sand

Black Sand Beach

First of all, the volcanic activity on the island is evidenced at this beach in the form of its unique, black sand. Over the centuries, the molten rock from various volcanic eruptions hardened and then eventually broke down due to erosion. Today, beachgoers can lounge in the warm sand, rent a sun chair, and in general enjoy the beauty that the unique color of this sand creates. The most famous 'Black Sand Beach' of the island is 'Perissa beach' that lies at the base of Mesa Vouno Mountain that separates Perissa from Kamari. From Fira, it's about 25 minutes (13km) driving to Perissa.
