Kalami, Corfu

Kalami is a very small scenic tourist resort situated within an overgrown area with nice beaches, below the Mountain of Pantocrator. It is found at a distance of 28,5 kilometers northern to the town of Corfu. The bay where the settlement is found has the shape of a horseshoe. It counts only 25 permanent residence, who will proudly show to you the “White House”, the house where lived and worked the Nobel prized British author Lawrence Darrel (1912-1990), during the period 1935 -1939.

During this period of time, his younger brother Gerald (1925-1995), who later became also a well-known writer and a fervent defender of wild life and nature, was the one who “explored” the island, investigated the flora and fauna of Corfu and collected several species. In 1939 the Darrel family was obliged to leave their beloved island, as the World War II had already broke out.

The Mountain Pantocrator is one the most important places worth seeing in the area. You will find cute small villages and overgrown hills around, but you will also be close to the rest of sightseeing of Northeastern Corfu. Hotels and rooms to let are available for accommodation within the settlement and in the broader area.

Kalami attracts mostly families and couples liking peaceful and relaxing holidays. However, if you feel like bored of calmness and relaxation, Kassiopi with the noisy bars and clubs and the intense nightlife is only at a distance of 20 minutes drive.  You will enjoy fresh fish, local dishes and international cooking in the sea front taverns of the settlement and of the broader area.

Swimming is possible at the beautiful pebbly beach with the crystal clear sea, in front of the settlement. The beach has been awarded a blue flag. You may also visit the beach of Kouloura at a distance of 20-minutes walk, at the right of Kalami; or you may choose Kerasia (30 minutes walk).

You may also choose the remote, almost hidden beach of Gialiskari, with turquoise water, southern to Kalami, where you will arrive after a 20-minutes walking; or you may pass Gialiskari and go to the beach of Agni, less remote, where you may also have lunch in one of the three fish taverns at the sea front.

In case of health problems you may address to the Medical Center of Kassiopi (some 9 kilometers to the North). Access to the village from the capital (Corfu 28,5 kilometers far away) is easy by taxi and by rented or private car and motorbikes.

The visitors should have in mind that there might be a slight problem with parking; although all the places for accommodation offer also a parking to their customers, there is never enough, especially in summer when the place receive many visitors. If you like to have a more original transport from one beach to another and wish to explore the coast, you may catch an excursion boat, available on the beach.
