Local wine is very popular here and famous outside of the island. It has amazing taste thanks to special Santorini soil, which is a mix of pumice stone, fragments of solidified lava, volcanic ash and sand. Nikteri is white young wine made from underripe grapes, Vincanto – red made from sun-dried grapes, and Cicudia, which is quite strong and reminds grappa.
Try to order a Greek salad here. Even though it’s a simple dish you’ll be pleased to the tops. The ingredients: red onion, tomato, cucumbers, that are locally cultivated, and feta cheese. To be honest with you it’s the most delicious we’ve tasted. There must be something incredible with this volcanic soil, which gives amazing and rich taste to the vegetables.
“Black sand” Perivolos beach is a real tourist attraction. Where else would you touch black lava sand with your feet? This place also has a big choice of places to dine and swim. We’ve had sumptuous experience in Fish Tavern “o Perivolos”: Greek salad, fava beans, red & sweet onion, sea food, eggplant baked in the oven, cheese, authentic Cretan salad. The list of starters may go on and on, not speaking of the main course.
