Popular with families with children and with those who enjoy water sports (especially windsurfing), this beach is on the eastern side of the island. Kalafatis is known for its water sports. This is very much an active beach. In the left corner of the beach of Kalafatis one can find a hut with hire facilities from a snorkel to diving. There is also a windsurf centre, where you can rent a board by hour, and a watersports centre for jet ski. As it’s away from the more touristy beaches, it remains less developed, but it has a few hotels (see below) and restaurants. There are some rocks by the water’s edge, but once past them, it’s great for swimming. The smaller beach of Agia Anna is just a short walk away.
