We visited here after a 3 hour treck over the Perissa mountain - Mesa Vouno via the little church & Ancient Thera museum. The walk was amazing and the food and beer at a restaurant on the beach front was well deserved. We didn't walk far along the beach & stayed close by to the bus boat which transported us... More

Interesting beach, with black sand, difficulties to get into the tempting water, a lot of nice hotels and restaurants facing the beach. Possibility to go by small bus or to walk (quite a long a difficult road) to ancient Thira. Really worth spending a day in Kamari. Easy to arrive by bus from Fira.

This is mandatory if you visit Ancient Thera. After walking up and down the hill, you will deserve a swim in the blue clear water and a delicious fresh meal sitting in one of the several restaurants with terrace by the sea. It is very crowded, though.

We just had a day visit to Kamari as we were staying in nearby Perissa. It meant a 2 bus journey but it was worth it. The bus stops right outside the Irish Bar which serves superb English breakfast by the way. We walked along the main strip and it looked very inviting. It is similar to Perissa but much... More

I say the beach gets really hot that you cannot even walk bare feet. But it's relaxing and we had nice chill time.

All the restaurants offer free sun beds/umbrellas if you buy their food/drink so is good option. Beach is pebbles and the sea can get rough.

Kamari beach is almost 3KM long black sand and small stone Beach. Umbrella & Bed owners made a wood way at the beach so that you can walk easily. Best way to reach here from Fira is Local Bus, they have frequent services. Price is 1.80Euro one way.

Kamari has a nice sandy beach with a relaxed feel to the resort. Lots of good value bars and restaurants, frequent bus service to Fira town and in our opinion a better option than staying in town.
