Kalami Beaches

Kalami Beaches

Kalami beaches (it is a group of 7 small beaches stretching for about 1 kilometer and parallel to the asphalt road, where other beaches are visible from the street and others not) is located between Kapsa Beach – Monastery (west) and Goudouras Village (east), 11km east from Makrigialos, very close to Kapsa Monastery. The area is full with small coves with small quiet beaches, too far from busy centres. Some of the coves are very easily accessible, because the road passes just next to them.

The first beach of this group is not so easy accessible like the eastern Kalami beaches and you can meet this 70m-long beach driving some 2 km from Kapsa. It is called West Kalami and is named after the reeds (‘kalami’ in Greek) that are next to it. It is a nice pebbly beach, perfect for seclusion with a spring with fresh water on the beach! There are no tall trees on the beach, but there is a big cave offering natural shade to its visitors, all day round. In order to locate that, you should note that the beach is located directly below the chapel of Agii Saranda. The particular beach is surrounded by high rocks, thus accessing it from the road is quite tough, but still possible.
