The long and sandy beach of Kalamos, situated the eastern side of the island Ios, 10km from the port, is a gorgeous place with soft golden sand and crystal waters. It is mostly secluded and receives few visitors, even in high season. Surrounded by rocky cliffs covered in almonds and olive trees, the beach is considered a special spot for adventure.  The preserved beach of Kalamos is ideal for those who love diving and snorkeling. It is not organized so take some supplies with you.
