Kamari Santorini Greece
Kamari is a tourist hot spot located on the south eastern part of Santorini, approximately 8km away from the capital town of Fira. During the 1956 earthquake most of this village was destroyed and it has since been completely rebuilt.
Kamari has a beautiful beach covered with black pebbles and is the longest beach on the island. Along the beachfront there are hotels, cafes, restaurants, bars, shops, nightclubs and water sport activities.
The village took it’s official name “Episkopi Gonia” from a church called Panaghia Episkopi, which built in 1100.
Kamari is a very beautiful part of Santorini, and is one of the most popular destinations for visitors to the island.
With a huge choice of accommodation and great facilities for dining and entertainment, many visitors base themselves here, and visit the other parts of the island during their stay.
There are two yearly festivals that take place at the church on August 15th and September 24th. Visitors to Santorini can join in with these celebrations and sample some local food and wine, as well as enjoy the traditional dance and music.
