|Greek name:||Παραλία Αγίου Γεωργίου / Paralía Agíou Georgíou|
Agios Georgios Beach in Santorini, or St. George’s Beach, is located in the southeastern part of the island, on the coast known for two other famous beaches – Perivolos and Perissa.
Agios Georgios is basically a continuation of Perivolos beach, but it is less popular, and therefore less crowded, so it is a great alternative for people who value both comfort and peace.
The beach is very well organized. You can find taverns, cafes and restaurants here. It is possible to use sunbeds and straw umbrellas, which are often free for customers of these establishments.
People who like active recreation will also find something for themselves, because there is a rental of equipment for water sports such as wind surfing, scuba diving, water skiing.
The surface of the beach is made of a characteristic black sand. The water is clean and the descent to the sea is gentle. Lifeguards are on duty during the day. The beach is completely open to the sea, the shore is straight, there are no bays so it is prone to strong wind.
The beach is about 3.5 km from Perissa and 12 km from islands capitol Fira, from which you can get here by bus. If you travel by car shouldn’t worry about parking space as there is a large parking area right next to the beach.
