About Kalamaki Beach
Kalamaki beach is a large sandy beach on the north east corner of Corfu. It’s in the bay of Apraos and that’s why it’s sometimes referred to as Apraos beach. There are multiple tavernas around the middle of the beach serving food and drinks to keep you refreshed, the middle of the beach, near the tavernas is also where it is generally the busiest and it gets quieter at the far ends away from the tavernas.
Kalamaki beach is perfect for kids as it’s a wide beach giving them room to play in the sand and it stays shallow for a good distance out making it safe for them to have a splash about in the water. There’s pedalo hire available as well as a long jetty out to the deeper waters that you can jump off at the far end.
Although Kalamaki is a relatively popular beach, it never feels crowded due to the size of it. There’s always a bit of space if you want to get away from the noise and sunbeds are not tightly packed in like on some other beaches. Other facilities here include a decent sized car park, toilets, showers and changing huts at the edge of the beach.
If you are not able to make your own way to the beach, there are a number of boat trips that stop here, some even have a beach BBQ here. Speak to one of the travel agents where you’re staying and they’ll help you to find which trips stop at Kalamaki beach.
There are a couple of minor downsides to Kalamaki beach, one is that the road getting down to the beach is fairly steep so walking is hard and driving can feel a bit scary if you’re not used to this type of Greek “road”. There is also sometimes a bit of wind in the area and as the beach is so large there’s not much shelter so if it’s a particularly windy day then Kalamaki may not be the best choice. Don’t let these things put you off though, this really is a gem of a beach, enjoy it before it gets too commercialised!
