Kalamaki, Crete


Kalamaki is a popular seaside settlement in the Prefecture of Heraklion, in Southern Crete. It is located 67 kilometers away from Heraklion, really close to Kamilari, Matala and Faistos.

A few meters down the road you will find a Super Market, as well as shops with souvenirs and beach accessories.

Banks and a health center can also be found in the nearby area. Every Friday and Saturday you can shop all kinds of local products in the open market.

The longest beach

The beach in Kalamaki is extremely long (it is the longest beach in Southern Crete), about 2.5 kilometers, as it reaches from Komo (south) to Kokkinos Pirgos (north-western) .

The sea turtle Caretta Caretta lays its eggs in that beach. If you come across fenced areas, there are nests with eggs, buried in the sand, that are hatched by the sun. The beach is excellent for sea sports, such as canoe, kayak and windsurf.
