Our final peek at Kalamia before we made our way down a trail that leads from the road to the beach

Fewer than a dozen people were enjoying the beach on the day we were there, at the end of May. The place was blissfully peaceful and quiet.
Above: More views of the cliffs, caves and large rocks near the shore. The town of Lixouri can be seen in the distance, on the opposite side of Argostoli Bay, in a few of the photos.

Kalamia beach photos on social media
Below are several photos that have appeared on Google and on a Kalamia beach page on Facebook. They show that, during the main summer travel season, at least, rental sunbeds and a beach bar are available at Kalamia. There weren’t any lounge chairs or umbrellas, and no sign of a canteen or beach bar, when we visited the beach in low season. If you visit Kalamia early or late in the season, be sure to bring your own snacks and water in case the canteen isn’t yet open.
