Kamari, is a cosmopolitan resort on Santorini’s south east. Its volcanic sand and pebble beach rolls out for over 2 kilometres and lays claim to a prestigious Blue Flag. You can kickstart your tan on one of the sunloungers – some will get you free Wi-Fi and waiter service, too. And if you need to cool off, a dip in the clear waters of the Aegean should set you straight. A stone-paved promenade that runs parallel to the beach, stretches across the crescent moon shaped bay, where a variety of cafes, restaurants, shops and supermarkets can be found. The nightlife if quite lively, while there’s also an open-air cinema on the outskirts of town. You can sit in the director’s chairs and watch the latest releases from 9.30pm every day. Ancient Thira is literally above Kamari. There are buses available to take you to the top but you can walk or drive. The site is open from 10-1430 most days (closed on mondays). There are plenty of accommodation choices at Kamari, hotels, rooms to let and villas for rent.
