There are two beaches named Firi Ammos on the island. The first and most famous is in the southeast, near the village of Kalamos. It is a long beach with red sand and pebbles, in the past it has won the Golden Starfish award for its natural beauty and the purity of the water. It's really crowded but worths a visit. Since last year the beach has been organized with a canteen and umbrellas, quite an important addition as any other cafe or shop is several kilometers away! Also Fyri Ammos is ideal to enjoy an amazing sunrise.

Small Harbor

Kyriakoulou beach is on the right cove after the cape between Chalkos and Kapsali. It is small, with white pebbles, green waters and high rocks, accessible by sea or through the gorge that starts at the cave of Agia Sophia, near Kalamos and has a small pond just before reaching the beach.


It is one out of the best three coastal destinations. Melidoni beach lies in the southwest of the island and is connected by dirt road to the village of Drimonas.

If you have just left the village of Kalamos, there are many swimming options nearby. Chalkos is one of the most popular beaches on the island, located just a few kilometers away - a pebbled beach with crystal blue waters! A canteen operates in the summer; you can also rent umbrellas and deck chairs and relax for hours.


Between Kaladi and Komponada is the beach of Vlychada. There is a dirt road to the beach but it is very rough even for off-road vehicles.

Komponada is one of the wildest beaches on the east part of the island. Located between Firi Ammos of Kalamos and Kaladi, it has large pebbles and very deep waters.
