Where to stay in Santorini on a budget near the beach
Booking accommodation in Santorini at an affordable price means you’ll probably not be in the renowned Thira or Oia. However, you shouldn’t see this as a disadvantage. Those places are located high up on the cliffs and are usually packed with tourists. They’re also loud, and much more expensive.
Instead of being up on a crowded cliff, you could be staying next to a wide beach, and only be in the middle of those crowds when you choose to. This way, your Greek island holiday will also include some well-deserved peace and quiet.
The Sea Side Beach Hotel is located just 11 meters away from Kamari Beach. And, in case you don’t like Santorini’s pebble beaches, the place also comes with a nice pool in the interior courtyard. Oh, and the pool comes with a jacuzzi!
Personally, I loved taking cover from the sun in that shaded pool during the afternoon. And, after so much walking through the heat to explore Santorini, it was so comforting to get a good massage from those strong water jets!
And having the beach that close was so great, especially in the evenings. I could have some delicious food at the beachfront Sea Side Restaurant, followed by a walk on the beach or simply sitting on the shore to admire the moonlight reflected in the water.
