    Lonely beach

    Lonely beach
    1 more image

    Along the shores of Kalamos, not far from the village, several narrow beaches are nested between the sea and the steep slope covered with a pine tree forest. Each beach is separated from the next one by large boulders. They look welcoming but they are made of pebbles and not of sand!

    Kalamos is made of layers of sedimentary rocks that stand almost vertically. In several places, sea erosion have removed internal layers and have given birth to amazing small caves.

    Even if you look closely to the first photo, I bet you will not see that there is a cave as its entrance is well hidden! It is on the left, under the pine trees!

    With our Zodiac inflatable boat, we could go into this rather small cave (second photo)

    The harbor

    The harbor
    1 more image

    The mole extends 50 meters long towards the North and protects the harbor from any southerly winds. However, it is open to North and North East winds. Most of the harbor is too shallow for yachts, even small. Hence, there are few visitors and almost all the boats are small local boats used for family fishing.

    Inside the village

    Kalamos village
    3 more images

    The first photo shows the main street of Kalamos.

    As the village is spread over the slope of the central ridge of the island, the way to the upper parts of the village are steep. It is coated with concrete to avoid the erosion (second photo).

    The third photo shows a heavily loaded donkey, the best way to carry parcels in places than cannot be reached by a car!

    The fourth photo shows a chimney with the typical style on the Ionian islands.

    Shuttle boat to Mytikas

    Shuttle boat to Mytikas

    The photo shows the ferry to Mytikas (see my Mytikas page). The crossing is just a little more than 3 nautical miles and is about 15 minutes. We never took it as we either went to Kalamos with a Zodiac inflatable boat from Mytikas (see my Mytikas page) or, on other occasions with a small sail boat.
