|About these ratings|
Santorini's volcanic history has led to the formation of some of the more unique beaches in the Greek Isles, and Kamari is no exception. Sitting about 4 miles southeast of Fira on the island's east coast, this stretch of powdery black sand is the largest on Santorini. The sand and pebbly terrain can get quite hot with the sun beating down on it, so bring protective footwear, chairs and towels if you're hoping to spend the day on the beach. There are also umbrellas and cabanas available at Kamari Beach, as well as water sports rentals like jet skis and kayaks. Bordering this sandy strip is the town of Kamari, the island's most developed resort area where you'll find numerous hotels, restaurants, beachside bars and shops.
Keep in mind that because Kamari is so easily accessible with so many amenities, you won't find the peace and quiet here that you would at other beaches like the Red Beach in Akrotiri. In order to secure a good sunbathing spot, plan to get here early. You can get here via car or on foot from Kamari, or by bus from other Santorini towns.
