Kamari Beach

Kamari Beach

Kamari Beach is one of the most popular beaches in Santorini. It is located in the seaside village of Kamari, one of the most famous seaside resorts on the island, located 10 kilometers southeast of Fira and very close to Santorini International Airport.

Kamari Beach is one of the largest beaches in Santorini, seemingly endless, with the black volcanic sand in perfect contrast to the turquoise blue of the sea, creating a fantastic setting.


With the magnificent Mesa Vouno mountain in the background, the beach of Kamari is the perfect place for swimming. The area offers a stunning landscape, especially at night when the rock is floodlit.

Kamari Beach has been awarded the Blue Flag while it is organized and has a lifeguard.

Kamari, as a village, is built at the foot of the imposing mountain Mesa Vouno, where the famous archaeological site of Ancient Thira is located. It is easily accessible by local buses from both Fira and the rest of the island, and if you drive there, there is a large car parking where you can leave your vehicle easily and quickly.


Kamari also offers a good nightlife selection with many club bars lining the beach road.

A stone-paved promenade for strolling that runs parallel to the beach stretches across the crescent moon-shaped bay. This is closed off to traffic during the summer months.

Kamari area includes Agia Paraskevi, Kamari village, and Kamari beach. Kamari suffered a great period of development after the earthquake of 1956, with the help of the inhabitants of Mesa Gonia village, which had been almost destroyed by the earthquake.

The best hotel in Kamari on the beach, just a breath away from the sea, is the Μakris Beach Hotel.
