Kamari is unique and unlike any other beach you have seen. It is long and distinctive for its sand, which is black and volcanic. An enormous rock that rises from the sea, called Mesa Vouno makes it even more impressive.

One of the most famous and beautiful beaches of Santorini, located near the village and ancient site of Akrotiri. We always recommend Red beach to our adventurous customers who rent a 4x4 or atv. It's worth taking your rental
car or atv and then climbing over a rocky path for around ten minutes to get there. Red Beach owes its name to the iron-rich sedimentary rocks and the red sand. You can rent an umbrella and a pair of sunbeds. There is also free space nearby, but gets packed in high season. It’s a great area for snorkeling too, as the waters are clear and an abundance of sea life is present. A great place to enjoy swimming at sunset time.
