Perama (Greek: Πέραμα) is a port city and a suburb of Piraeus, Greece. It lies on the southwest edge of the Aegaleo mountains, on the Saronic Gulf coast. It is 8 km northwest of central Piraeus, and 15 km west of Athens city centre. It forms the western terminus of the Port of Piraeus (Athens' port) and there is also a passenger port that provides ferry services to Salamis Island.

The name Perama comes from the Greek word "perasma" which means "passage". Perama has a secondary soccer team named Peramaikos F.C.
