The “beach” is full of dirty facilities that serve as cheap tourist trap. No service, questionable food, and NO food safety. (Beware of what you consume) Most food is processed and or frozen. Kalamata is a dirty port city with Marina serving as a junkyard for old boats. No respect for tourists or appreciation. If you find yourself in the area, immediately go to Costa Navarino area about 45 minutes from Kalamata airport.
There are far more beautiful destinations in Greece and Europe.

The beach in Kalamata proper is NOT clean, NOT sandy and NOT organized. Mostly all broken down places, processed and frozen food items. The sundeds are dirty and and broken.Very cheap, loud and obnoxious. Go to Mani or Stoupa or Costa Navarino. Nothing in Kalamata worth wasting anytime.

Kalamata has much potential. 2 hour easy drive from Athens Greece and an International airport, Marina and deep water for Yachts. The swim-able beach coastline is about 9 kilometers.
The beaches are mostly raw with disorganized beach venues, no service or a quality setting.
Having said that, it is very beautiful, the sea and the mountains and the quaint fishing towns. If you want a nice beach day and sunset, go to Yanina Kai Parea Beach Lounge. (Fabulous and Beautiful) If you like to rough it, go to Akti Beach Cafe. (Limited services and facilities)

This is a very beautiful area, the sea, the mountains, the greenery. Location is good, easy 2-hour drive from Athens. An airport, deep water Marina, the area is wonderful.
The local cuisine is very mediocre, mostly mystery food and frozen. Nothing that fresh, cheap eats, cheap liquor and no real hospitality. Not very clean along the beach or the main beach street, Navarinou. Too much graffiti, the buildings private and government are in shambles and do not resemble the photos. It is not quaint and more a waste of time and money. If you are on a budget and quality is NOT important, or cleanliness, this place is for you. Otherwise, drive to Costa Navarino, or Mani area.

Kalamata is a place you will never forget and will always desire to return to. It is ideal for every need. Historic yet simple and magical. The beach is endless, the food delicious and the filoxenia unmatched. Close your eyes as you hear the melodious waves and smell the salty and warm therapeutic water.

One of the greatest beaches of Messinia, ideal for a lovely walk, with lot of beach bars, where you can enjoy cockteils or food in one of the most hospitable Greek cities. You can see people swimming and the winter, as temperatures in Kalamata are always high. Kalamatas beach is about 4 klm starting by lighthouse and finish about Filoxenia Hotel. Also there are several cycling. There are lot of tavern's with delicious Greek food and the most of these they have the tables beside the coast. If someone want to buy traditional things there are two shops that you can find. Furthermore in the long way beach can anyone taste yummy ice cream from the pastry and see the beautiful sunset. Enjoy it!!

I stayed for 1 week in Kalamata and went to this beach every day! Okay, it's not the prettiest beach I've ever seen (particularly due to lack of sand), but it is a very pleasant beach on which to sunbathe and swim. The water is perfectly clear and warm and the sea very calm. The beach is lined with many lovely restaurants, all of which have sunbeds at the front which you can use free of charge after purchasing something from the restaurant. I would have breakfast somewhere, and then stay on the sunbed all day!
Love this beach and can't wait to go back!
