We visited Kamari off season, so had the entire beach to ourselves. It's a pleasant pebble beach with volcanic sand. it's an ideal place to relax, swim. The pristine aqua blue waters make you want stay there forever.

Spent the late afternoon and early evening in Kamari after a visit to the ruins of the ancient city of Thira, which is located on top of a large hill near the town (if you don't fancy hiking up the hill for several hours, you need vehicular transport. A travel agency in Kamari has a van going and up the hill for 10 euros for a round trip, if you don't want to rent wheels).

As it was October, Kamari was relatively quiet with a number of hotels, shops and eateries already closed for the season. I saw only a few people in the water although a paddle on my part suggested that the water, while fresh, wasn't particularly cold. The beach is interesting, given that it is volcanic in nature, but as a beach resort for a summer holiday? Well that really is a matter of taste.

Kamari's restaurants, eateries and taverns continue along a pedestrian strip next to the beach for several kilometres but there are a number of others in the town proper and you are not paying for a view of the sea. I had a nice evening meal in one of these away from the beach and was most impressed with the food. There are the usual souvenir shops and I bought a couple of reasonably priced t-shirts.

At the end of the walking path I noticed some new subdivisions underway in Kamari; these houses seem to be catering to either people who wish to use them as holiday homes or to live in permanently. It would seem the town will continue to expand, which is a shame as it continues to lose its village status and becomes ever more just a seasonal resort. All in all, it was fine for a visit in autumn but it's not a place I would go to in high summer.

Beach is very nice, it's black from volcanic rocks, it is not sand,. The water is clear and cold. You can get here from fira by bus only e1.80. Very nice stroll in November not too many tourists..

I haven't seen Kamari in the high season, but in the low season it's a gorgeous place to enjoy the sea and the sea views. The town of Kamari is nice too. It's not full of traditional houses or anything, but it is appealing with lots of good food options.
