Kalami beaches
(190 votes)

Kalami is located 70km south east of Agios Nikolaos and 34km east of Ierapetra, very close to Goudouras. The area is full with small quiet coves, too far from the busy centres. They are very easily accessible, because the road passes just next to them. The first beach you meet is called Kalami and is named after the reeds (kalami in Greek) in the torrent in the center of the beach. It is a nice pebbly beach, perfect for seclusion with a spring with fresh water. There are no tall trees on the beach, but the rocks offer natural shade to its visitors, all day round. In order to locate the beach, you should note that the beach is located directly below the chapel of Agii Saranda. The beach is surrounded by high rocks, thus accessing it from the road is quite tough, but still possible.

There are some tiny coves next to it. The first beach on the west is a tiny beach shaped at the exit of a narrow and small ravine with cavernous walls. Atherina, as it is called, is one of the nicest private beaches in the area. Just 100m on the east, there is another small bay facing to the west.
