Perivolos und Agios Georgios Beach
The beaches of Perivolos and Agios Georgios connect to the Perissa beach and extend from there in a south-westerly direction over a length of 1.5 kilometers. The boundaries of the beaches are not recognizable, so we describe the two beaches together.
The beaches consist of fine black gravel, which can get very hot in summer. On very hot days you should wear your shoes to the water. The sea is very clear, as the fine gravel does not stir up sand. There is little natural shade on Perivolos and Agios Georgios beaches. Of course, this is also due to the fact that renting sun loungers and parasols is a very profitable business.
All day long, a bevy of beach vendors offer their goods and services on the beach, from sunglasses to watches to massages you get something constantly on offer. Under no circumstances have a “personalized” bracelet created for you on a “trial”, not paying for it can be difficult.
