A “Blue Flag” distinction is the best…medal of honour for Firi Ammos beach near Kalamos
There are two beaches named Firi Ammos on the island of Kythera. The most famous one is on the island’s southeast, near the village of Kalamos. At 17 klm from Aroniadika, it can reached from the north from Livadi going towards the Panagia Odigitria Chapel, a distance of about 4 klm on good asphalt road, plus 4 more klm to Firi Ammos, with the last 500 meters done on foot.
It is a long beach with red sand and pebbles, which in the past has won the Golden Starfish award for its natural beauty and the purity of the water. It is an organized beach with a canteen and umbrellas, quite an important addition as any other trace of “civilization” is several kilometers away!
