“Beach okay”
Reviewed October 15, 2013

Great place to be, a bit uncomfortable to walk on the beach because it's black shale but lovely scenery and great sea.

“Vist soon before it goes back into the sea”
Reviewed October 15, 2013

Kamari Beach has been a frequent spot for my wife and I to visit over the last 25 years. When we first visited in 1988 the beach was almost deserted and three times as wide. Today the black beach has been erroding away because of changing tides and ecology. Located below the ancient ruins of Thira this volcanic stone beach is still a place to enjoy and go swimming or diving in. There are also many cafes and restaurants along the beach to enjoy. Beach shoes are a must in Summer because the stones do get hot.

“The famous black beach”
Reviewed October 12, 2013

I love Kamari Beach. It is totally different from the usual white sandy beaches that we normally go to. Kamari beach has black pebbles and the water is very nice, a beach shoes is recommended. There are a lot of nice sunbeds where you can relax & a lot of restaurants where you can order a nice refreshing drinks and good food as well. I really love this place and the next time I visit Santorini, I will definitely stay here again. its definitely fun in the sun!

“Volcanic sand and pebbles, but popular.”
Reviewed October 11, 2013

We're not really beach lovers, but this was well-kept, clean and provided plenty of facilities. There are many tavernas along the seafront and a number of hotels overlook the beach as well. If you like your beaches, this is worth a visit. But take beach shoes; that black sand gets very hot!

“Romantic at sunrise”
Reviewed October 10, 2013

I found this beach very romantic and unique in its special way, comparing to other common beaches. The black small pebbles, mixed with black sand in some parts of the beach, did not disturb me at all. The water was very clean, but not recommended for children, as was quite deep and with stones down. Nice sunbeds and umbrellas, civilized people, it was very nice to walk on this beach at sunrise, as it offered a great landscape. For lunch, you may choose between a wide variety of dishes, at the tavernas close to the beach.
