A Monotone Beach on a Greek Island

37 items of clothing, 8 pairs of shoes, 3 bags

In 2013 I visited the Greek island of Santorini. I stayed in the village of Kamari, where the photos below were taken. I won’t show you pictures of the iconic white buildings of Oia, you can find those online. This post is a little meditation on the black sands of Santorini. I hope to return there some day.







The black beaches of Santorini.



  1. Like these pics – as you say, not the usual postcard images associated with the Greek islands! I grew up in Greece and have been to Santorini quite a few times – although it’s stunning, I always found it rather over-comercliased so I’m glad you managed to find a calm corner…

  2. Nice photos. Didn’t need the text to know it was Kamari – the rock gave it away!
    This is a part of Santorini you don’t see in the photos. I think even some of those who stay in Oia for a few days never see this.
