Kambia Beach is located on the southwest coast of Santorini, in Akrotiri village, about 13 kilometers away from the capital Fira. It lies between the famous Red Beach and White Beach which constitute impressive landscapes, close to the beautiful lighthouse of Akrotiri. It is easily accessible by car or bike, through a 15 min drive on a dirt road that leads there.
Kambia is a lovely, little beach characterized by crystal-clear waters, large volcanic pebbles and is surrounded by cliffs that provide partial natural shade. Since its seabed is rocky, there is a makeshift platform for easy access to the water. It is a semi-organized beach with some umbrellas and sun beds available to rent. There is also an adorable traditional Greek tavern and snack bar by the sea where tourists can keep cool and savor typical local dishes, drinks, and fresh fish.
Kambia is not numbered among the popular beaches of Santorini and hence it is a quiet swimming spot ideal for relaxing moments away from the crowds. The combination of tranquility, clean waters, great views, and good food make it the perfect place for a pleasant day out and offers visitors the chance to experience a different aspect of Santorini.
