After visiting Santorini many times you are lucky to discover the local aspects of the island.
One of them being the small town of Pyrgos. This is usually where I love to stay when I go with my family.
This year after having lunch in the town square of Pyrgos at Kantouni restaurant we booked or stay on the beach of Perivolos.
Staying on the cliffs of Santorinis Caldera in the middle of August is completely insane. Prices are through the roof and the crowds make it somewhat unpleasant.
And after visiting the calmness of Amorgos we chose to be on the beach. A bit more family-friendly and spacious it was a welcome 2 nights.
The volcanic black beach is unique and revitalizing.
Worth considering when on the island of Santorini.
