Walking-Hiking

Coastal walks and hikes through the verdant landscape, the coastline and the picturesque landscape will certainly delight the most adventurous souls. Worth visiting are the beautiful Chouchoulio beach and the enchanting harbor of Kouloura only 15 minutes away from Kalami, where travelers can relax by the sea or wander into the verdurous countryside.

In the area of Kouloura one should visit the Anielli’s estate dating back to the 11th century and the scenic chapel nearby. Follow the road for Kerasia (about a 30minute walk), admire the unspoiled landscape with the few impressive villas scattered throughout and try local specialties in the traditional tavern. The area of Kerasia is renowned for the tower that was built by Rothchild in order to host the crème de la crème of international  society, including members of the British Royal family.

Moving on you will encounter the picturesque village of Agios Stefanos (approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes’ walk), with  startling villas brilliantly set amidst the hills and the absolute calm as well as a few taverns where you can enjoy some of the finest Mediterranean specialties right by the seashore.

If you are heading south make sure to visit the beach of Gialiskari (about a 15 minutes’ walk), a pristine beach with crystal-clear waters nested in olive groves and fragrant gardens ideal for swimming and snorkeling. The village of Agni further ahead (approximately a 25 minutes’ walk), offers a few picturesque taverns for fish lovers and enthusiasts of local gastronomy.

Choose any route your please, by the startling seashore or within the verdant landscape. Whichever route you choose to follow the majesty of nature will take your breath away.
