Costa del Sol
Kalami is sheltered by 2 wooded headlands and backed by a steep hill making it feel very protected with calm seas. It’s a quiet, traditional resort, centered around the road that runs parallel to the pebbly beach and surrounded by olive and cypress groves. The bay is lovely, with a sheltered crescent of Blue Flag beach and watersports in the summer months. Why not rent a small boat or kayak to explore the coast? If that sounds too active, just hire a sunbed and parasol on the beach or relax by your villa’s private pool and come out to play in the evening.
You can get the everyday basics in the village if you want to cook at your villa - there are 2 mini markets that sell fresh bread and a fishmonger. You’ll also find a couple of gift shops selling Greek crafts and souvenirs plus all you need for a day at the beach. Locally made ceramics, lace and leather goods are high quality, inexpensive and widely available in Corfu Town and in Kassiopi.
Kalami is centred around the beach which is lined with several tavernas serving plenty of Greek and Corfiot classics. The famous White House, once the family home of authors Laurence and Gerald Durrell, is now a restaurant with lovely views of the resort and bay. If you fancy a change of scenery, it's well worth walking around the headland in the other direction to Kouloura, which has a fantastic, well-known seafood restaurant right by the little harbour. The bigger resort of Kassiopi is just a 15 minute drive away with a greater choice of shops, bars and restaurants. Or, The pretty tavernas in nearby Agni offer a dinner boat taxi service during the summer months.
Kalami has a lovely pebbly beach, perfect for snorkelling and swimming, with sunbeds and parasols to hire. Around the headland, about a 5 minute drive from Kalami is Kouloura, a very pleasant little beach, shaded with huge eucalyptus and pine trees. The harbour has a traditional style taverna with lovely sea views from the terrace. For very keen walkers, the Corfu Trail coastal path leads from Kalami Beach to Agni and Kaminaki beaches to the south. Agni has several good tavernas while Kaminaki has no facilities but is a delight.
In the summer months, you can try the watersports on offer at Kalami Beach including sea kayaking and stand up paddleboarding. Alternatively, you can take a boat trip from the beach to explore the nearby bays and coves, an idyllic way to see more of the island. You can also, enjoy fantastic views and swim in picturesque spots, so beautiful, that you will never forget. Further afield, Aqualand waterpark is in the centre of the island, just under an hour’s drive away.
The island is full of traditional quaint villages, ready to be explored, along with some spectacular scenery along the way. Why not visit the Pantokrator Mountain, Corfu's highest point, and admire the view over the island to the open sea?
We recommend a visit to Corfu Town, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, with historic churches and a maze of narrow streets, 2 fortresses built during the Venetian era, pavement cafes and hidden leafy squares. The Archaeological Museum has plenty of artefacts found around the island dating back millennia that tell the story of its ancient past.
For a different kind of adventure, you can cross the narrow straights to Albania, which was under communist rule and closed to outsiders for decades. Today, you can travel there by hydrofoil in just 40 minutes from Corfu Town and explore the World Heritage Site of Butrint. Once a major trading post, you can see how the Greeks, Romans and Ottomans all left their mark here including an amphitheatre and temple.
