Kalamata is worth a visit even if only for the famous olives and its famous olive oil.
Near the city we recommend a tour of Ben Olive Mill – Kalamata, a 4th generation olive oil factory with its own orchard. The organized tour gives you a real-time picture of the production process and includes tasting, but must be booked in advance.
In the city we found near the beach Camping Fare Kalamata, a modest campsite but with all needed facilities and relatively easy access to the beach. Below are some pictures from Kalamata and the campsite itself.
