KALAMOS BEACH: THE EXPERIENCE
Now this one was a hike! And not a hike for us… a hike for our little non FWD car! hahah. It’s all about the adventure right? We spent the day visiting all of the north eastern beaches of Ios and this beauty was the last one for the day. Whilst a beautiful beach to visit, we have to give you some pointers before you go.
So accessibility… after our experience, we wouldn’t recommend coming down in anything other than a FWD. And for a few reasons.. the road is entirely dirt and sand and is extremely steep, rocky and bumpy in most areas. So yeah in a tiny car… not too safe! We were told by a local to head to this beach and that it’s fine to do so in our car… i don’t know what her wheels are looking like but we wouldn’t recommend.
The beach itself was gorgeous, and extremely secluded which we could understand after the strug of getting down there. A yachts was anchored down here, probably because they would usually have the beach to themselves. So if you have a FWD or a boat and love a secluded beach, Kalamos will impress you!
