Kamari is probably best known for its incredible black-sand beach – a striking reminder of the island’s volcanic origins. But the beguiling, Blue Flag-certified sands aren’t the village’s only spectacle – its gleaming whitewashed buildings literally sparkle in the Aegean sunshine.
Kamari holidays put you in easy reach of first-class amenities, excellent varied dining options, sites of historical interest and, of course, the warm, crystal-clear waters of the Mediterranean. The resort has lots to offer – local shops, bars and restaurants combine relaxed, contemporary sophistication with an unmistakably Greek charm. Stroll along the bustling pedestrianised promenade while the sounds of traditional Greek music spill out from the tavernas. Stop for a glass of local wine, some meze or even catch a movie under the stars at the open-air cinema. You will soon discover that holidays to Kamari are anything but black and white.
Watch a film
Open Air Cinema Kamari screens films in a lush, leafy amphitheatre, complete with ice cream, popcorn and a bar. The films are shown in English with Greek subtitles.
Make a splash
Kamari has loads of fun water sports for all the family, from banana-boat rides to knee boarding, jet-skiing and paddle boarding, with great scuba-diving opportunities just offshore.
Visit the local ruins
Just above the beach is Ancient Thira, which dates back to the 9th century BC and includes the ruins of Hellenistic temples, Christian churches, a theatre and a public square.
