Kamari is one of the most popular beach resorts on the Greek island of Santorini thanks to its unique black sandy beach and convenient location just 10kms southeast of Santorini's largest city of Fira and three kilometres from Santorini's airport by car hire in Kamari.
Loizos Rent A Car, a local car rental business in operation since 1990, is just one among many companies providing car rental in Kamari. Desks offering cheap car hire in Kamari can also be found in several of the over 200 accommodation options in Kamari.
Kamari's beach is not only unique because of its distinct black sand, but also because of Mesa Vouno, the gigantic mountain rising from the nearby sea which is lit up at night, giving it an even more spectacular appearance. The beach is a popular location for several water sports.
Kamari's beach is also Santorini's largest, and received its name from the arch at its south end which is the remainder of an ancient landmark dedicated to Poseidon, the ancient Greek god of earthquakes and the sea. Restaurants, bars, and hotels line Kamari's streets, but visitors should watch out for empty restaurants or overly enthusiastic staff offering free drinks or discounts.
Another historic landmark, Ancient Thira, lies just above Kamari and is an hour long walk or shorter drive by car hire in Kamari to the top. An unforgettable view of the Aegean Sea awaits visitors who reach the summit of Ancient Thira.

What do I need to do when picking up a car?
To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.
