Kalamitsa beach

Kalamitsa Beach is located in the suburbs of Kavala, which is why there are always plenty of tourists on it. Convenient transportation, proximity to hotels, developed beach infrastructure ... Indeed, why else go somewhere if you can stay in a colorful and comfortable town and walk every day to the beach on foot? If you agree - you definitely do not need to rent a car, because Kalamitsa is a real youth paradise. A rich day's rest is not worse than the stormy nightlife – you can have fun here around the clock, and we recommend you to do it.

Beach description

The territory on this site is a pebble beach 800 meters long and 25 meters wide. The pebbles are quite small, so in some places it is mentioned that Kalamica is a sandy beach. The sea is small and calm, so Kalamica is an excellent choice for beach holidays with children. But consider the fact that it is often quite noisy and crowded on the beach. Sure thing! After all, the greater percentage of holidaymakers is young people, whose rest is necessarily accompanied by laughter, loud music, jokes and fun.

The beach in this area is protected by rocks from wind and waves, so it will also be an excellent place for those who do not confidently stay on the water. Also on the beach the nature itself created ideal conditions for sunbathing, picnic by the sea, or sports games on the sand.

The beach has a benefit location. It takes a long time to get there: You can get there very fast by buses № 4,5 and 8 from Kavalla. There are also buses from Thessaloniki. Who does not plan to order drinks in local bars (and there are a lot of them here, keep in mind) – can come here by rented car. The route is quite comfortable, and the beach has parking.

When is the best time to go?

Greece - a country with a long length from north to south, so the recommendations will vary depending on the place where you are going. The holiday season  begins in May and reaches a peak in July-August: there are too many tourists, and the temperature on the southern islands reaches 40 degrees, which may still not play a role on the beach, but certainly not suitable for sightseeing. So the best time to relax in Greece is the end of spring-beginning of summer or September-October.
