The burning dark sand and the great restaurant of Sea Side by Notos
The wide beach of Agios Georgios at Perivolos is one of the most beautiful seaside in Santorini and it houses the Sea Side By Notos, a beach bar & restaurant that gathers great reviews among people from all over the world and that I appreciate for several reasons.
Of course, the location is lovely, with the dark volcanic sand and the crystal clear sea that distinguishes Santorini (the day I was there, the water was unbelievably clean). The Sea Side has been able to enhance the natural heaven in which it is located thanks to its sophisticated but laid-back atmosphere made of wooden furnitures, soft colors and straw umbrellas.There is also an old fishing boat that has been transformed into a couch, with soft cushions and a nice view on the sea.
But the thing I loved most when I went there, was my sun-bed. Sun-beds at Sea Side are really really comfortable! Especially the larger ones, the ‘king size’ sun-beds. They are perfect for stretching out the body in all directions and enjoy the sun and the background music. Such a relaxing experience!
There was another detail that made my day at Sea Side by Notos really enjoyable, that is the great service. I think that it’s always a pleasure to spend time surrounded by a kind staff, always ready and discreet.
The service was great both at the beach and at the restaurant. In fact, the Sea Side gives the chance to enjoy a fresh fruit juice, a cocktail or an appetizer directly by the umbrella. But if you want a full meal, the restaurant offers a fusion cuisine characterized by research and passion. It’s possible to taste seafood dishes that have Greek and international influences. Loved this cuisine.
The restaurant is perfect not only for a light lunch after a long sun-bathing morning session but also for dinner, when the backdrop becomes more romantic.
I think it’s clear that my opinion about the Sea Side by Notos in Santorini is very positive! But if you ask me to find a flaw, well, that black sand gets very hot under the sun and walking barefoot is almost impossible!
I obviously recommend you to go to the Sea Side, spend a relaxing sunny day and enjoy good food at its restaurant but, believe me, do not forget the flip flops if you do not want your feet to get burned!
