Santorini Kamari Beach

Updated on September 10, 2014

Kamari Santorini

Santorini is one of the most famous of the Greek islands. It is also one of the most beautiful and one of the most visited island. It is a popular option with those who want to get married or spend their honeymoon on the island as there are plenty of secluded places in which to enjoy complete peace and privacy. The hotels on the island are ideal for visitors of all ages and Kamari Santorini is a favored holiday destination for tourists.

One of the reasons for this is that there is so much to see and do in the area. Visitors are able to enjoy a variety of activities such as water sports, with snorkeling, scuba diving and swimming among the favorites. The coast of Santorini has clear waters and it is a great way to see underwater life at close quarters. There are also some areas of the coastline which are ideal for those who enjoy surfing and sailing is another popular hobby. Boat trips are a great way to get a new view of the island and these can take you out to the other islands or to the volcano itself, where you can experience the hot springs and the amazing views.

Family Holidays in Kamari Santorini

Kamari Santorini is a great place for holidays with the family. Many of the hotels in the area have features such as childrenÂ's clubs and pools, so that parents can relax while the children are kept busy and under supervision. With other activities such as tennis and gymnasiums, there is something for everyone, particularly at the bigger hotels. The beaches on Santorini are not traditional sandy beaches, often they are pebble beaches or black sand which is usual with a volcanic island. Sunbathing is still popular though, and many of the beaches have loungers and chairs available for maximum comfort.

If you are looking for budget hotels in Kamari, I suggest the Irini's Rooms unit, built right on the beach.

Restaurants in Kamari Santorini

Dining in Kamari Santorini is so easy. There are many restaurants to choose from so if you want to try some of the traditional Greek dishes there are plenty of places to go (suggested: Irini's Restaurant). However, the town also has restaurants which serve other cuisines, mainly from Europe, so there is something for everyone. Locally made wine is available almost everywhere and there are also trips to the island's wineries which can make a great day out.

Historic Sites in Santorini

Historic attractions are readily available to those who are staying in Kamari Santorini, with trips to the capital town of Fira for the museums and to Akrotiri for the ancient ruins. There are other places on the island which are a must for those who are interested in history so your holiday here does not just have to be about sunshine, although there is certainly plenty of that. Santorini is one of the driest Greek islands and the climate is one of the reasons why visitors choose to come here year after year. With this and the warm welcome which is guaranteed for visitors from the local people, you may begin to wonder why you ever chose to take a holiday anywhere else.
