The townSeparated from Laganas by a huge pine wood, Kalamaki develops almost entirely along the main street; recent hotels and restaurants, perfectly integrated with the surrounding countryside, offer the tourist all the possible facilities.
In the last years also many snack bars and souvenirs shops were born always respecting the natural environment and the close beach that being the extension of the one of Laganas it is protected too by the rules of the Marine Park.
The beachIt is a beach of fine sand very crowded in the first part, the one close to the trees but it is worth at least once to take a walk to the final part of this beach where the mountains dives straight into the sea.
In this part in addition to the crystal clear sea and a very warm water it is possible to be alone even in August.
In the same way, if you walk on the beach going towards Laganas, when you will be exactly halfway between the two resorts, you will have a pine forest behind, the sea in front of you and few tourists around.
Even in this part the access hours are limited because of the turtles presence.
