Its nearest school is in Metochi. Kalogria is famous for its sandy beaches. The beaches extend north to the nearest climbing areas. There are more than 80 climbing routes in the mountain range of Mavros Oros. The famous resort of Kalogria Beach is near the beach.

The setting of Kalogria is located west of the mountain and a cliff is east of Kalogria and its landscape is rocky and bushy.
