Kalotaritissa is a small, picturesque fishing village at the foot of Mt. Papas, in Donoussa’s northeastern tip. It has a few low, stone-built houses with blue and green doors and windows, and adorned with basils and bougainvilleas.
A particular feature is the impressive old juniper trees on the hills around the village. The whitewashed church of Agios Georgios, built in 1985 and featuring a pretty bell tower, is in the same frugal style. A traditional tavern operates in the summer months.
The bay of Kalotaritissa features the pretty beaches of Sapounochoma, Vlycho, Messa Ammos and Trypiti, while Skoulonissi islet is off its northeastern tip.
