“Clear Aegean Waters”
Reviewed September 15, 2013

Kamari beach has large pebbles, not sand. When you go in the water, it is a bit difficult to walk on the shifting pebbles, but when you are in the water, it is really nice. The beach has many options of sunbeds and umbrellas you can "rent" for the day starting at 5 Euros in Sept. 2013. The area of Kamari is full of restaurants, tavernas, shops, and hotels lining the boardwalk along the beach. This area comes alive with people strolling along the boardwalk until late in the evening. The location of Kamari is the best to stay at because it is so easily accessible compared to the more famous Fira and Oia.

“Beautiful beach”
Reviewed September 13, 2013 via mobile

The beach can get very busy, but there are plenty of sun loungers to go around and they're only €5 per pair for the day. The water gets deep quite quickly, but it is great for swimming and there's a lot of fish in different shapes and sizes so snorkeling is a must! Also, the black sand gets very hot, but there's wooden walkways so you don't burn your feet!

“nothing special except a little black sand.”

There was a good beach, but nothing special, I think. I heard that there was a much black sand, but sand was not black than I thought. Except black sand, I didn't feel difference with another beach.
