Kaladi is, according to many, the best and most popular beach on Kythera, the one that shouldn’t be missed when visiting the island. It is a pebbled beach with crystal clear turquoise waters on the eastern part of the island, right next to Palaiopolis. The beach is divided into three parts, the third and most impressive being a small cave which ends up on a very small beach, the perfect destination for swimming and diving. The eastern side of the beach is ideal when the wind blows west, south or when the north wind is not too strong. To get there, you need to drive on a dirt road for a few meters and then descend the approximately 120 stone steps. There are no tourist facilities apart from some natural shaded spots to protect you from the summer sun. It can get quite crowded in the peak season especially with young people who enjoy dives from the rocks.
