A beautiful sandy beach in this quiet resort. The sunset from the beach is stunning. For those more daring part of the beach is allocated for naturists

This is a lovely beach that stretches many kilometers so easy to find space, whether organized, since lots of beds and umbrellas, or expanse of Wilder areas to have more privacy, your choice! Libyan sea, lovely and fine sand, not much wind when we visited...More

Beautiful and clean! The sand is quite dark, so it was really hot on our feet. There is a sharp drop-off as you get in the water. Nice waves, but the rocky ridge made it a little hard at the time we were there. I...More

We have been to Kalamaki about 15 times in the past 20 years, usually with a couple of friends, on one occasion as much as 24! Even after all these years, this place is still not overrun by tourists, which makes it much less crowded...More

Nice spacious beach with large grained dark sand, lots more room than Matala and less crowded and not so commercial. Nice for a bit of sun and causal lunch. 25 minute easy drive from Matala. Highly recommended if you like space on the beach. Matala...More

The beach of Kalamaki is not a good option if you are keen on a nice swim actually.It is better to take the bus to nearby Platanias where there is a nice sandy beach.Other options are Chrysi Akti and its neighbour.

This beach is a really safe beach for swimming. Sandy underfoot in the sea with very few stones. Nicely sheltered in the bay. Free sunbeds and parasols if you buy a drink from the bar. Someday's you almost felt as though you had the little...More

The beach is not over crowded. Free umbrellas all over the place. It's a sweet small town with many small stores and tavernas. I love it here

Nice straight beach, lined with cafes and fish taverns. Nothing to write home about, a nondescript place. Probably an alternative for accommodation to nearby Matala.
