Resort Summary

Kalamaki itself is serene and scenic. The impressive image of Mount Skopos stands at one end of the beach and the green landscape is sprinkled with beautiful wild flowers, grape vines and all manner of fruit and olive trees. Due to the conservation of the resident loggerhead turtles along the coast, the no-watersports policy here only adds to the ambience and tranquility along the white sands.

Once you feel rejuvenated and fancy some action, Kalamaki will continue to impress you with its host of wonderful excursions and experiences suitable for the whole family. Local tour operators offer daily cruise trips to nearby caves and coves where you can snorkel, sunbathe and spot loggerhead turtles in the clear water.
