Get a beach chair as the black sand gets extremely hot in the sunshine and you will hurt yourself trying to sit on just a beach towel. The beach is stony and so is the bottom of the sea so swim-shoes are a good idea. There could be a few more showers on the beach but other than that it... More

The beach was made up of black sand or rather pebbles of all sizes. Not the most comfy place if you're looking to lie on the beach with just towel. Rent a deck chair instead.

This was the third beach we visited in one day. By far, my favorite. Much less crowded than others. Parking was very close by. Lots of great choices nearby for food, drink, and shopping. The beach was black pebbles so it can get hot. And laying on the towel was not so comfy. But the water was fantastic, blue, and... More

We visited Kamari Beach after Ancient Thira and must say it didn't wow us, the beach was packed with organised seating, much related to the eateries. We were pestered the whole stretch to eat in various restaurants, we weren't at all hungry and fed up with the pestering retreated to the roads away from the beach which were much pleasanter....

Black sand, pebbles and not very clean. Give me golden sand any day. Most of it taken up with hotel chairs and umbrellas but some free stuff at the end

The water was beautiful and the swimming was fantastic. Water shoes are really necessary to walk over the hot black pebbles so you can enjoy floating in the perfectly gorgeous sea. There are lots of shops and restaurants to choose from (where we purchased water shoes that we did not pack for 8 Euros). Restaurants vary in price and quality.... More

Kamari beach may look far away from down town, but it is just 25 min from Thira and 35min from Oia by ATV, and it is much cheaper than others beaches. You can rent (or get one for free) a chair on the beach and if you want to drink something you can just walk 30 meter and buy it... More

If you are searching for a nice beach to rest a bit and enjoy the relaxation of the sea water, here could be your type of tea. But if you are looking for a real beach, I would say go to other places. The sands are, well, not sands but tiny rocks. Walking with bare feet is definitely not a... More

We're not beach lovers but worth setting your alarm for the sunrise. Only a few people around with the most amazing sunrise. Great for photographers

Great choice of sun beds and restaurants. The beach is stony and the sand is black, being volcanic, and one needs beach shoes.
