The homes, shops and plateia of the village are on one side of the bay facing Agios Markos and cliffs which are located on the opposite side of the bay. On clear days, the island of Mytiline (Lesvos) can be seen in the distance beyond the bay enclosure. It is a short boat ride from the neighbouring island of Oinousses. Both Oinousses and Kardamyla are known as the home villages of Greek ship-owners. The largest town in the municipality is Mármaron (pop. 1,045).

Tourism

Sights in the village include "The V", a large white V painted on the cliffs facing the village. It was created after World War II to celebrate the "V"ictory of the Allies, and is kept painted white every year since. Kardamylitians are proud of it and many take on the challenge of cliff-climbing to it..
