Beautiful Black Beach

Black pebble-like sand as far as the eye can see and the beautiful azure waters of the Aegean Sea in stark contrast. Sunbeds and sun screens will litter the view, but if you are... read more

Black pebble-like sand as far as the eye can see and the beautiful azure waters of the Aegean Sea in stark contrast. Sunbeds and sun screens will litter the view, but if you are looking for a quiet private beach, you have to look elsewhere. There are also wooden walk ways all over, but not all the way to the...

i 've been in Kamari years ago, and once more i found a nice and clean beach. Black sand and pebbles, lots of beach bars. You can have a nice day at the beach there!

Another gorgeous beach in Santorini, Kamari Beach is one of the more popular ones on the island. Expect plenty of large waves and gorgeous views while you are here.

Different restaurants have their own seating area on the beach. The one we sat at had lazy employees so we went to the corner store for snacks and beverages. I'm sure it was half the price! People come around and offer things to buy. Be clear if you don't want anything. A polite no is usually all it takes. If... More

This beach is gorgeous and wonderful to just enjoy the beach and relax! The sand gets a bit hot at times but I would recommend investing in one of the blue chairs and umbrellas that they offer you to rent, although they were a bit pricey to rent. I think about 12 euros, and if you would like a bottle... More

We loved Kamari Beach, it was such a surprise. We had seen a few pictures but nothing much. We didn't expect so many lovely restaurants. They stretched for approximately 2 1/2 kilometres along the beach. Lots of sun lounges & umbrellas in a very relaxed style. Some of the restaurants had their own sun lounges in front of their restaurant.... More

The beach is claimed to be black sand, but in reality the only part of that description that is correct is the colour. It's a mixture of very very sharp grit, sharp edged volcanic rock and stomes leading to quite a steep slope into fairly rough sea. We went on the beach once and not again,which for a couple that...

I like the way the local shop are on the street line across the Kamari beach, a lot of souvenirs and restaurants for day and night.

Although the beach is not white sand typical of most holiday resorts. Just wear sandals in the beach and you're fine! No mess! Gorgeous views, lovely feel, plenty of places to get food and drink! Because we stayed with a hotel on the beach front we got Free sun beds which was amazing, Great location, surrounded by cliffs and crystal... More

We spent almost all of our days on the rock beach! It was wonderful. The people were friendly. The rocks were hot! The view was incredible.
