Kalamitsi is a traditional village along the main road in Lefkada island. The village is relatively untouched by the tourist industry and still retains many of the characteristics of a calm unspoiled gateway destination. The main road that passes through the village is very narrow and there are sections where only single car can drive through. People traveling from Lefkada town to Vasiliki, Egremni, Gialos or Porto Katsiki often consider the other main road via Drimonas and Axanthia.
In Kalamitsi there are many villas and holiday homes which offer calm and peaceful holiday. Still the island capital and some popular beaches are not far away. Kalamitsi beach is the closest (4 km away) and is characterized by the huge rocks in the sea next to the beach.
