At the beach, one should carefully decide when to swim, and when simply to enjoy the sun and surf. There are often winds and active surf conditions, which would tend against swimming. The beach is natural, and there are no permanent chairs or sun covers. It is a splendid place to enjoy the sun and the peaceful sounds of waters, sand, and the magnificent stones.

Away from the beach, there are many sights to take in on the island including boat tours through sea caverns and air tours to see the entire island in a few hours. Kalamitsi, without a doubt, is a place you should visit if you have the opportunity.
