interesting place to walk around!

Our hotel was just about a 10 minute walk from the Kamari Beach boardwalk. During our walk along the boardwalk from 3:30p.m.-4:30p.m., there were many barkers in the restaurants... read more

In my opinion (and I think in everyone's opinion), Santorini's beaches are not spetacular, at least compared to those of other islands. I thought Kamari beach was the nicest one in Santorini. Black pebbles, and very quiet at the time we were there (November), though I am sure it gets very busy in summer.

Our hotel was just about a 10 minute walk from the Kamari Beach boardwalk. During our walk along the boardwalk from 3:30p.m.-4:30p.m., there were many barkers in the restaurants who try to encourage you to eat there. They bring out the menus and show them to people passing by. It was not exactly lunch time nor was dinner time either... More

Unable to quote on facilities as we visited in November and everything was closed for the season but stunning views here as with most of Santorini!

We have visited for 4 different holidays over the past 10 years & love it. Lovely promenade, with plenty of tavernas & shops. Atmosphere of an evening is electric. Quiet in October; most places closing, but still a few sun beds free if using attached bar/ taverna

Beautiful rocky beach so bring flip flops. I learned that evey European woman wears a two piece and it doesn't matter what size you are! I wish I had brought mine.

It's a long stretch of black volcanic sand, with numerous beach beds and sun brollys for hire, all within easy reach of the many bars and restuarants stretch out along the waterfront. Most of which offer free beds and sun shades if you buy a drink or meal, the waiters will bring your order to the sunbed. There are showers... More

So many great restaurants line this road, it's hard to choose one. We ate at 3 places and they were all good. During the day, we got free lounge chairs and tables by having lunch with them. It's a good place for a nap, a swim in the warm water or for reading. At night, they have a performance with... More

More pebbles than sand, and sea gets deep quickly and can have strong waves/tides, but worth a visit as it's novel and relaxing. Sand get scorching hot so be sure to take reef shoes with you. Beds provided by local bars if you make a purchase.Good to see when on Fira Island
