Have you ever been to Santorini?

Monday, June 14, 2010


The cosmopolitan Kamari is 10km away from Fira. There is always life, as it accommodates the majority of the charter passengers that inundate the island in summer. It has a well organized that stretches in many kilometers. It has smooth black sand, playground, water sports and diving center.
The town is connected with frequent bus service from Fira. Completely rebuilt after the 1956 earthquake, Kamari was the most important strategic point of the island, and also the port for Ancient Thera, after the decline of Akrotiri in ancient times.
In Kamari, the church of Panagia Episkopi is of great interest. It is an old Byzantine church built in 1100. The best time to visit the church is on August 15th during the feast of Virgin Mary. You will enjoy with all the dancing, singing and the tasty food.
At nights, when the red full moon is rising from the dark waters, a walk in the costal pedestrian precinct is a perfect idea. Enjoy the sight and make a stop for a bite or a drink, since it has restaurants, bars, but also a bank, ATM and cinema.
