Nothing special at all. We didn’t even take pictures. It’s a pebbly beach with a big mountain next to it. Santorini has much nicer beaches in comparison to this one.

Our hotel is located on the beach. It has a little rocky beach and surf was rough the couple days. It is still beautiful and relaxing.

The only downside for swimmers was that the sand was rough. For swimming I would recommend Red Beach.

We had our late lunch at Kamari’s Mesogaia. The view at the restaurant was good. We originally planned to spend more time on the Kamari beach after lunch. But the beach was full of visitors and no available benches with good view. So, we just...More

Beautiful black sand beach by the mountain. We took a bus from Fira to this beautiful village. The street is full of restaurants and hotels, some of which were closed as we went in late October. Our son loved playing in the beach for hours....More

I am planning on visiting Greece with my three college age granddaughters next May. I thought that spending 4 nights on a Greek Island for the beaches and 4 nights in Athens as a good mix. I would like to stay at a hotel on a beach that had a pool and would not be too expensive. I do not want to spend $300 a night for a hotel room. I would like access to the beach from the hotel or at least a short walk away. What are the thoughts of the "ones in know" as to staying in Santorini...More

Hey and welcome AGAD:-) What a lovely gift! Am sure our local experts/locals will kick in soon with great advice for you and great recommendations as well! Just for a heads-up, although the isle itself is magical..and extremely unique being a volanic isle..just be aware that the beaches reflect same (the waters are the usual splendid Aegean!)..but are also made up of volcanic black ash/grit so don't expect any idyllic white sand here! Having said that, think your itinenary is wonderful with a...More

My husband and I are planning our first trip to Greece this September. We plan on continuing onto Italy after Greece. Our itinerary is Santorini, Naxos, Athens and Corfu. We prefer beachside towns so have thought in Santorini to stay in either Kamari Beach or Perissa Beach as our home base. Is it advisable to rent a car and do day trips to Fira and Oia. I understand that accommodations in both cities are very expensive compared to Kamari and Perissa. Is there easy parking available in...More

We stayed in Santorini 5 years ago ( can't believe it's that long ago!). We booked a last minute bargain and stayed in Perissa early July which we really loved. Perissa was an ideal place for us as fairly quiet while we were there. weather was very hot and plenty of good ( & very cheap) restaurants nearby. Could not fault it. We did take the water taxi to Kamari one day and were glad we had not opted to stay there. Very busy and the beach was crowded. Restaurants also busy and a lot...More

Kamari vs Imerogivli Stay? (15 Replies)
We are playing to stay at Kamari Beach - to be on the Beach. Is it worth it? Or is staying at Imerogivli better? We are a group of 11 adults and 2 kids (9 and 8 yrs old)

Response frombigsnitch|
Only you can decide if it's worth it or not. You're looking at 2 entirely different locations offering different experiences of Santorini. Are the 2 kids going to be happy staying in a very small village with pretty much nothing for them to do other then ooh and aah at the spectacular views? The Kamari option gives you much better value for money - just about everything there is going to be cheaper than in Imerovigli - excellent hotels, restaurants, bars cafes etc, a hell of a lot more to...More
