Kalamaki Beach, Kalamaki
(4.1/5 based on 1,800+ reviews on the web)
A hidden gem of the Ionian Islands, Kalamaki Beach offers you a chance to practice your canoeing, kayaking, and windsurfing skills in relative peace. Despite its proximity to the busy resort town of Kalamaki, the beach remains relatively undiscovered by foreign tourists and maintains its relaxed island atmosphere. A nesting ground for the endangered loggerhead sea turtles, the beach is a key part of a national marine park. In order to protect the turtles, which you can often spot in the shallow water near the sand, local law prohibits water skiing and swimming after dark. Rent a pedal boat and spend a day exploring this protected stretch of the coastline. Our Kalamaki holiday planner makes visiting Kalamaki Beach and other Kalamaki attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • Lovely beach Walked right the way from laganas beach Was clean, quite packed though But the more we walked and got past all the sun beds the quieter it got, worth a visit definitely 
  • beach was abit dirty n full of stones,not many sun loungers but all in all it was ok to sunbathe on,noisy when planes went above you low 
  • Wide, long, sandy beach, a long and shallow descent to the sea, pure water and plenty of beautiful shells on the sand, at night it happened that on the edge of the ejected was seagrass. In may without the crowds, you can find a quiet place for sunbathing and relaxation. Beach protected due to the turtles Caretta-Caretta, which establish their nests on it while you're there in September, you can see how hatch small turtles, and adults measure up to 120 cm. length. You can rent a pedal boat and put out to sea in search of turtles, which we have personally, really big fun, photos and memories. An additional attraction are flying dozens of meters above the heads of the planes landing nearby, contrary to appearances, the noise does not interfere with summer life.
