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!
