Kalamaki Beach
Kalamaki beach is one of the longest beaches on the island and stretches all the way from Crystal Beach at one end to Laganas at the other!

The beach at Kalamaki is within the Gulf of Laganas and does have restricted opening times; as it is closed to the public from sunset to sunrise. As the sun goes down all tourists are asked to leave the beach so that the turtles are not disturbed during their nesting process.

Water sports are also limited on Kalamaki to protect the Caretta Caretta turtles. While there are pedaloes for rent along the beach, you will not find any of the motorised water sports along this beach.

The Zante beach of Kalamaki is a long stretch of fine, golden sand. The beach runs from Crystal Beach at one end, right down into the beach of Laganas. Kalamaki is really popular with families on holiday in Zante as the wide stretch of sand and very shallow swimming makes this a great spot for children to enjoy their holiday at the beach.


The popular Zante beach of Kalamaki is one of the longest on the island, stretching along most of the South West coast of the island together with the beach at Laganas. The two beaches run into each other and it is hard to pin-point where Kalamaki ends and Laganas begins. Notably though, the Kalamaki end of the beach is less developed with fewer beach bars and sunbeds dominating the beach shore.

The fine golden sand of Kalamaki beach makes it a popular spot for tourists during the summer, in particular with families on vacation. The rocky cliff, at the far end of Kalamaki beach, at Crystal beach, consists of gypsum, and is a beautiful sight sparkling in the sun.

Zante is the main nesting ground for the Loggerhead turtles in the Mediterranean. The South West region of the island is where they most commonly choose to return to lay their eggs. Subsequently, the National Marine Park of Zakynthos take a number of steps, including restricted opening times of the beaches, to ensure that the protected turtles are as unaffected by tourism as possible.
