Welcome to Kamari
Kamari is a cosmopolitan beach resort on the south east of Santorini, which has been awarded the Blue Flag. The long stretch of beach lies under the impressive mountain of Mesa Vouno. The water is deep and blue, the sand is black and there is a lifeguard on duty.

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 offers a wealth of cafes, bars, restaurants, shops and supermarkets, as well as a lively nightlife. The beach is organized, with sun beds, umbrellas, water sports and diving.

Kamari Beach lies under the Shadow of Mesa Vouno & Ancient Thira

The Kamari area includes Agia Paraskevi, Kamari village and Kamari beach. Kamari underwent a large period of development after the earthquake of 1956, instigated by the residents of Mesa Gonia village which had been almost totally destroyed.

In 2002 an ancient Sanctuary of the legendary Achilleas was discovered. Amongst the stone ruins, a chalice of the Ionic period was found, with engravings which wrote the names of the craftsman and of the Greek hero.

Archaeological Sites : Ancient Thira Settlement
The second important period in the history of Santorini is linked with the city of Ancient Thira. The excavation there, begun in 1896 by Baron Hiller von Gaertringen in the area of Mesa Vouno, revealed ruins of town which bore evidence of settlement as early as 9th century BC.
