The coastal village of Kalami lies in Souda
bay and it is built around the Intzedin (Izzedin) fortress, constructed by the Turks in 1866. The fortress is large and well preserved, with panoramic view over the bay. The village is very small, with a dozen of houses and a narrow beach of sand and pebbles but the large sandy Glaros beach is just 1 km away. Another sightseeing nearby is the archeological site of Ancient Aptera, with Roman baths, ancient theater, Roman cisterns and a chapel. The resort village of Kalyves
is at a distance of less than 3 km.
