Kalamokanias beach

Kalamokanias is situated in the south-east of Agios Nikolaos, at a distance of 57km, and to the east of Ierapetra, which is 22km away. The beach is located at the west side of the Makrigialos settlement, and it derives its name from the Greek word for the migratory bird stilt (Himantopus himantopus) that has red legs and body resembling a miniature stork and nests in the local streams.

The beach is less developed and secluded, with coarse black sand that doesn’t cling to the body. There are some tamarisk trees providing shade and a few taverns and rooms to rent. Generally, it is locals who frequent this beach, as opposed to the tourist beach of Makrigialos. To get to Kalamokanias from Ierapetra, turn right 100m before arriving at Makrigialos and head towards the sea. There is a coastal road also linking the beach to the local harbor.
