Nederlands map of Crete

There are several beaches in Crete that are called Kalamaki Beach. There is one in the north of the island, not far away from Chania, and there is one in the south of Crete. The beach here on the photos is Kalamaki beach in southern Crete. It is situated about 70 km from the capital Heraklion and is accessible via the route Heraklion - Mires - Kalamaki Beach, or from Rethymnon via the route Rethymnon - Spili - Akoumia - Timpaki - Kalamaki Beach.

The southern Kalamaki Beach has a beautiful 2.5 km long sandy beach where sun beds and umbrellas are for rent. Often sunbeds and umbrellas are free if you order a drink at the tavern where they belong to. In the village are several small shops, mini markets, a bakery and a large number of taverns, mainly on the lively promenade that is located along the beach (no cars). There are quite a number of accommodations for rent in Kalamaki Beach.

The beach of Kalamaki is situated between Kommos Beach (in the south) and Kokkinos Pyrgos Beach (in the north). Kalamaki Beach is very quiet compared to some other resorts in Crete, but there is still a little bit to do. Because the beach is so long you will always find a quiet spot for yourself. If you walk south for about ten minutes you'll come to a stretch of beach where there are some tamarisk trees, where there is also room for naturists. You have to be careful though because in between May and October there are nests with eggs of Caretta sea turtles on the beach. For this you will be warned by signs.

Kiknos Cafe Snack - Kalamaki Beach

Kiknos Café is situated on the promenade that runs along the beach of Kalamaki. They sell simple meals and snacks, including pizza, sandwiches, yogurt, omelettes and various types of breakfasts. We order therefore not haute cuisine but a cappuccino and a yogurt with honey and walnuts. The coffee is good and strong, Lavazza, and comes with a bottle of water. The yogurt is fine, but it is of course difficult to do it wrong. We are helped by a very nice girl that brings us a large plate of grapes (free) after we are finished.

Our verdict: pleasant and friendly, a 8,5 out of 10
