Kalamaki village

Kalamaki community is fairly new, constantly developing, built on a beach of exceptional natural beauty and character.
The fauna of the area is unique, with cedar trees centuries old, lilies of the sea, aromatic herbs, etc.

Kalamaki is located 2.5 km from the beautiful village of Kamilari and it is characterized as an archaeological site. It is one of the three villages that constitute the community of Kamilari.
The beach in Kalamaki is wonderful and extended, over 3 kms long and covered with fine golden sand. The Caretta-Caretta tortoises lay their eggs on the beach, among the sand-dunes of Kalamaki, and there is an information kiosk in the community.

The view from the beach is also magnificent. To the right of Kalamaki one can see the resort town of Agia Galini and , at a distance on the horizon Paximadia, the two small islands of the Messara gulf.

The area of Kalamaki has been inhabited during the Minoan, Hellenistic and Roman period. South of Kalamaki is the archaeological site of Kommos, port of ancient Phaistos.
Outside the community is placed the church "Palies eklisies", built on the 18th century probably on the ruins of a Roman temple. South of the "palies eklisies" church there is an excavated building probably of the Hellenistic period.

Kalamaki was built during the 80, while the first houses were built during the 60. The community is developing into a modern, tourist seaside resort, with restaurants, bars, hotels and rooms to rent.
