“Just Chalk It Down to One of Life's Pleasures...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 August 2012

Kalamionas Beach is a tranquil, hide-a-way in Kassiopi, Corfu. There is plenty of room for everyone (never cramped) and the scenery and entire experience is a gift... The only caution I would draw to your attention are the little sea urchins that occasionally wash to shore. If you step on one - you will receive an 'owie" of grand proportion from their spines which must be removed. I would strongly suggest wearing water shoes or sandals of some kind while walking on the beach to avoid these little guys. There are piles of sunbeds which you may rent (which is entirely reasonable seeing tourism forms part of Kassiopi's economy) and the price of 5 euros for an entire afternoon not worrying about someone taking your chair or possessions is a small price to pay indeed. I actually holiday on Kalamionas Beach at a resort located behind it. I could sit and stare at the bay for hours on end and knowing that there are liquid refreshments and food just a short walk away is an enticement to settle there for a while. I visited for 11 days September 2011 and I am headed right back there for 14 days on September 3, 2012.

“nice beach”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 August 2012

not too cramped but you have to pay 5 euros for a sunbed which is a joke when you have to go to the beach because the hotel has none

“Beautiful.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 July 2012

The most fantastic view and location in the world.
Although the beach isn't sandy, its white pebble, which some may prefer... its a comfortable environment that is spotless clean, well looked after and loved.
The sea is crystal clear and fantastic for snorkeling with all the fish further out, and the view from the sunbeds is phenomenal!
Just one reason kassiopi stands out from the rest of holiday locations.
