Corfu Kalami beach

General information

The picturesque beach destination of Kalami in Corfu is most famous for being the landscape that inspired famous English author Lawrence Durrell to write his novel L'île de Prospero (Prospero’s Cell)! The Blue-Flag shore is filled with large pebbles, clear warm waters, and a deep pebbly seabed, hence it is recommended that you bring a pair of water shoes!

Kalami is a well-organized seashore featuring a plethora of sunbeds and sun umbrellas to rent, a pay-to-use rinse shower, and free-of-charge changing booths and WC facilities. Furthermore, one may visit the on-site beach bar for a snack or a drink or pay a visit to a local supermarket near the beach! Also, Kalami has a handful of villa apartments near its shores, as well as boat rentals and watersport facilities!

    Great for laidback vacation
    We are an elderly couple and we were looking for a laidback vacation, so Kalami suited us greatly. A pretty village that provided us with exactly what we wanted. We didn't want a village that is filled with tourist activities. Kalami has pretty much no roads and there were practically no cars. It is a very humble village that is left unaffected by mass tourism. The beach was pebbly which I loved. My husband was happy because sand simply sticks on you. The beach was clear and there were two main activities we did, swimming and snorkeling. We enjoyed our meals at the local taverns. The hosts were gorgeous and we ate some fish dishes made with fresh caught fish. A couple of mini-markets were there along road from which we bought essential supplies. Really gorgeous place. Not recommended if you are looking for all night fun!
