You may want to wear beach shoes if you have sensitive feet. My kids managed without just fine. The surf is very gentle which gave me peace of mind that my kids weren't going to get beat-up by crashing waves. In fact, they were able to swim quite well. Now, it is a bit chilly, but if you're the type... More

Very lively beach, with a lot of restaurants and cafes, one of the cafes offers Shisha, its name is Nostos. However, it is not a sandy beach, but it is beyond the beach, and the walk is amazing

Such a beautiful beach, as other reviews say not your typical sand, its black stone/pebbles, make sure to wear shoes as it can get hot when there are not boards near by to walk on. Most sunbeds are free aslong as you buy drinks/snacks, or you can rent one for as little as 5euros for two along with parasol. Lovely... More

I was intrigued by this beach. The water was cool but yet I didn't want to get out. I spent most of my time seeking unique volcanic pebbles to bring home. There are plenty shops and restaurant surrounding to choose from. There's an island close to shore but i cant swim so I watched people swim back and forth. I... More

Really loved Kamari. It is quite small but that is not a bad thing. It has bars and restaurants that stretch along the beach front and the atmosphere is very relaxing. The beach is made up of pebbles, great to swim in and sunbath but you will need an $10 pair of beach shoes to walk around. I definitely recommend... More

Just 20 mins by bus from Fira (1.6 euro per person each way) gets you to this picturesque black sand beach. Lots of loungers and umbrellas associated with adjacent bars/restaurants though some were closing up for the season at this time of year. More pebble and stone than sand in some areas but quiet at the northern end, nearer to... More

A good long stretch of black sandy beaches with the usual water sports catered for. There are lots of sunbeds and umbrella mainly belonging to seafront bars/restaurants. These are free of charge if you buy a drink or snack.

Took two buses, one from Firostefani to Fira, then next to the beach. Only a half hour. Enjoyed the scenery on the way. Lots of restaurants. We walked and shopped, then chose Alis Mari restaurant. Sunbeds & umbrella free if you ate lunch. Pebbly beach, wear watershoes.. Great lunch, too.

The Kamari beach was our second most favorite beach on the island. The first being Perivolos. The Kamari beach is gorgeous but it's not a sand beach, it's black rocks. It's the only reason why it's our second favorite ;)

A great beach to lap up the sun with free sun loungers and umbrellas if you eat or have a drink at one of the numerous cafes and restaurants on the sea front
