Kalami is a small, picturesque, coastal village. It is located 15 kilometers east of Chania, in the south side of the bay of Souda and near the village of Megala Chorafia. It has a spectacular view over the bay and the fort of Souda.
It is also close to the ancient city of Aptera and the Turkish forts of Intzedin and Aptera which are quite impressive and were built after the Cretan revolution of 1866.
Just 500m north of the village, within a short walking distance, a beautiful beach with deep water and round pebbles is shaped.
At the eastern end, there is a tiny harbor with boats. The beach is very popular to the locals, but still and not very well organized. There are some umbrellas and a few tamarisk trees.
At the settlement of Kalami there are traditional taverns offering you the chance to taste the local cuisine. However, the accommodation options are limited.
The bustling village of Kalyves with all amenities and its sandy beach is just a 5 minute drive away.
