The Bay

Kalami Bay has gained its reputation as one of the most attractive holiday locations in the Mediterranean for a number of reasons.
It is closely linked to the Durrell’s early life in Corfu whose descriptions of the island’s beauty won the hearts of many visitors thereafter.
Kalami has featured in a number of international movies with the ITV’s latest production of THE DURRELLS hitting the screen in 2016.
Despite its prized reputation Kalami continues to maintain its sense of primal peace and beauty. It is in fact the natural landscape of Kalami Bay with its unique rock formations, evergreen olive groves that touch the sea and the sapphire blue waters of the Ionian Sea that attracted this much attention in the first place.
The entire North East Coast of Corfu is a particular experience in itself with a multitude of coves and white pebbly beaches to discover most of which happens either by an extensive coastal footpath or by boat.

Kalami in Film

In 1978 Kalami was a featured location in the movie ‘The Greek Tycoon’. Starring Anthony Quinn and Jaqueline Bisset, the script is loosely based on Aristotle Onassis and his relationship with Jacqueline Kennedy.

Kalami also featured in the 1981 James Bond movie ‘For Your Eyes Only’. The movie starred Roger Moore and was directed by John Glen. Kalami was used as the location where the character Melina visits her parents and they are later killed here by villian Hector Gonzales. A number of other scenes were also shot for the movie on Corfu.

Kalami has also featured in many TV programmes. Notably, Rick Stein waxes lyrical about the bay and its connections with the Durrell family inane of his programmes about food in Greece.
