    Beautiful surroundings
    I am Danish and 31 years old. I went to Perivolos beach by foot, as my accommodation, Atlantis is located in the area. It took me about 30 seconds to get there on a good road and I had an enjoyable trip. I stayed in the area so I knew the way to get there and it was the closest one to our accommodation. The beach was long with pebbles, clear deep cold waters, beautiful surroundings, fully organized with sun beds and umbrella rentals. It was organized and unspoiled at the same time, clean, and windy. The amenities you could find close to the beach were telephones, mini market, restaurants, cafes, bars, beach bar, clubs, water sports activities, hotels and other accommodations. The only thing we didn’t see was a bank, but maybe we missed it. It definitely met my expectations. My favorite thing about the beach was the water and the sun. In my opinion this beach was absolutely perfect.
