About Kalamata

Located in southern Greece, Kalamata is a lesser-known tourist destination, making it the ideal place for a peaceful holiday in Greece. You can enjoy the sand and sea at the beach, feast on delicious fresh Aegean flavors, and have fun at the lively taverns in the evening. The city is located approximately 240 km from the capital, Athens. Places to visit in the city include the Kalamata Castle, the Old Town, which is located around the Castle, the Church of the Ypapanti, which was consecrated in 1873, and the Agios Ioannis church. Other attractions include the Town Hall, Gallery of Contemporary Greek Art, Archaeological Museum of Messenia, King George Square, and the Folk Art Museum.

Known for its olive trees and olive oil, this port city features a 4km stretch of pristine, blue flag beaches as well as vibrant taverns, cafes, bars, and clubs that line the shore. You should also visit some of the other beautiful beaches located a little further outside of the city. If you have time, visit the beaches at Verga, which is 8 km from the city, Mikri Mandineia, which is 10 km from the city, or Avia, which is 12 km from the city. The ruins of Ancient Messene are also worth a visit.

The city has a fairly small airport that mainly serves seasonal international flights. Another option would be flying into other cities in Greece, like Athens, and taking a domestic flight to Kalamata. You can reach the city center from the airport by taxi or car. We recommend booking taxis in advance. Also, there is a bus stop outside of the airport that provides transportation to the city.
