Kalogeras beach is located in the settlement, a little further west of Kontogoni and extends to the next bay (Piso Kalogeras). Kalogeras is adorned by the rare cedars and typical sand dunes of the island, it has very shallow turquoise waters as well as all the beaches of the island.

It is said that in this particular area lived in solitude a "holy" man, simple and wise, in his simple hut. He was lonely and everyone respected him and loved him. When he died they buried him there, and in his honor the area was named after him (Kalogeras in Greek means “monk”).

Here is the stadium of Elafonisos and Toumbes, a region with high sand dunes.
