Kamilari is a quite, traditional village in southern Crete. It is small and scenic, with all the features of a typical Cretan village with a small main square, a church and the famous kafeneia full of character crowded by locals. Kamilari (350 inhabitants) is built on three hilltops, Goulas, Alevrotas and Evgoras, and offers a panoramic view of the olive groves of the Messara Plain, the peaks of Psiloritis Mountain and the south Cretan Sea.

On an 80-metre hilltop to the north of the village is a tholos tomb from the Middle Minoan era. Before the creation of the massive palace complexes such tombs had social functions beyond the funerary: hosting the rites of spring and harvest as well as drinking ceremonies dedicated to the living and the dead. From Kamilari’s tholos tomb you have a wonderful view over the Messara plain, the Lybian Sea and the majestic Psiloritis massif.

Nearby Kamilari village you will find the great sandy Komos beach. The prehistoric settlement at Komos became the port for Phaistos under the Minoans. It was excavated in 1970 by amateur archaeologist Friedhelm Will. The dig is not currently accessible to visitors, as work is still underway bringing valuable finds to light. From June to September the beach at Komos is visited by endangered loggerhead sea turtles (Caretta caretta) who come to bury their eggs.

Kamilari is very close to Tymbaki, Mires and the seaside villages of Kalamaki and Matala and just 4 km from the Phaistos archeological site … just the ideal base in order to explore the lovely plain of Messara, with its picturesque villages, rich history and, of course, its great beaches in this part of Crete.
