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.
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.
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.
Anyone who visits the beach Diakofti will be confused and wonder if they are in some exotic island! The water is shallow and turquoise and the color of the sand is white. Located on the northeast side of the island, in one of the most beautiful sites of Kythera next to the harbor, it is an ideal beach for young children because of its depth.
At the entrance of Chora take the dirt road on the right; it will lead you to Feloti. The road is very dangerous and requires attention but the scenery will surprise you, as large rocks that slumped from the mountain of Agia Elessa have randomly set up on the slope.
