Perissa and Kamari are 2 villages hosting the main beaches of the island. They are both located in the Eastern part of the island, and are separated by a mountain. Kamari is more a family spot, with a lot of shops and nice restaurant bordering the beach. The sand is black, and it becomes very hot when the sun shines,... More

I loved the black sand beaches and quaint little restaurants and shops . It was a beautiful location with wonderful people. Would go back in a heartbeat. On the other side of Oia /Fira but very easy to get to with the public transit system

This was the most beautiful place we have visited. Kamari Beach was unusual with the black volcanic pebbles and the gorgeous aqua marine sea. All along the beach are lovely places to eat, drink and relax and the people were so friendly and helpful. We are going back in June. We loved it!!

This black-stone beach lies on the veat coast of Santorini, by the village of Kamari. Village got its name after the Kamara - the remaining arch of the Temple of Poseidon on the north end of the beach, beneath the mount of Mesa Vouno. There is an asphalted promenade with no traffic all along the Kamari beach, on the both... More

We loved the beach. hundreds of shops and restaurant along the beach that are open till late. Don't miss the sunrise at the Kamari beach. It's better than Oia's sunset which is hugely hyped. Hotels around Kamari are much cheaper compared to Oia. Kamari also has more number of restaurants.
