  • Notes:
    A large hotel has appropriated half the beach although bathers can certainly use the facilities. The hotel also offers a great deal of water sports activities and organizes professional sport event like beach volleyball tournaments.

    When we visited there was a beach volleyball turnament taking place in front of the large hotel, and parking on the narrow road was a pain. We reached the beach just to find that there were no parking spots. Turning around in the narrow road was a major production, and we had to park far from the beach.

    Overall, not too bad of a place to swim. Nice sand and nice water.

    Visitors' Reports

    Kalogria beach is a well kept secret. We have visited this beach sine 1978 and were back there again the summer of 2007. It is nice to see that not much has changed....still only a couple of hotels and not the concrete jungle we expected to see. The sand is white and soft and for families very shallow. Very clean refreshing water. The drive to the beach takes you through an unusual pine forest . Tall umbrella -like pines that have been preserved for years. On our last visit my daughter and I tried para-sailing...the view of the turquoise water was breathtaking....highly recommend this spot! -- by Jen and Lei (2008)

    Comments this is the best beach in the whole world. it has lovely soft sand; trees at the back which offer shade; rocks around the edge where people can go snorkling and which house a spring water pool; and crystal clear cool turquoise sea water. there's also a volleyball net, room to play bat and ball and pedaloes&canoes available for hire. the beach bars around the back of the beach are brilliant and in general the entire beach just rocks.

RATING SCALE

5 = the sea water was some the best for swimming. We would go way out of our way to swim there again
4 = sea water was excellent and inviting for swimming. We would go out of our way to swim there again
3 = very nice and clean sea. We would go swimming there again if we were in the area
2 = nice sea, we had a nice swim but we did not notice anything special about the water
1 = the sea water was not very inviting at the time we visited. We did more sunbathing than swimming
0 = the water did not seem suitable for swimming

Note that these are our simple (and unscientific) observations based on our subjective experience during our visit. We enjoy the water when it is crystal clear, and cool instead of warm. We don' like visible floating particles of any kind or algae settled on the beach.
