Kalamaki, also known as Apraos is the first sandy beach on the north-eastern coasts of the island and is located between the popular tourist resorts of Kassiopi and Acharavi. Kalamaki is a shore about 1,5 kilometers long known for its shallow waters. You may have walked for more than fifty meters into the sea and the water might still be reaching only up to your knee! For those wishing to reach faster in deeper waters, they can use the wooden deck which starts from the beach and continues into the open sea.
Kalamaki provides all the necessities of an organized beach for bathers such as deck-chairs, parasols, sea sports as well as the basic infrastructure for accommodation and food. It is an ideal beach for families with children, as the waters besides being shallow are also very warm unlike most beaches on the island. Small boats depart from Kalamaki for excursions in the nearby beaches of the region.
