The village lies at a distance of some 2.5 kilometers from the sea and the beautiful, kilometers in length beaches between Kalamaki and Komos are easy and quickly to reach on foot or by car. When you stay in Kamilari you can combine visits to the beach with beautiful walks through the environment. Also a visit to the famous archeological site of Festos, two kilometers from the village and to the caves of Matala, eight kilometers, should not fail your holidays.
