Situated in the southwest of Zante is the resort Kalamaki. Kalamaki is a large resort with a beautiful beach and a relaxed holiday atmosphere. Due to the central location of Kalamaki on the island you can easily move between Kalamaki, Zante Town, and the nearby resorts of Argassi and Laganas. Kalamaki is a great place to stay if you want a peaceful holiday base with a few bars and restaurants to keep you entertained during your time in Zakynthos.
Situated very close to the town of Zakynthos, some 6 kilometers at the South, Kalamaki is a lovely tourist resort, very popular and well known. This is also the closest resort to the island’s airport. From the main Kalamaki resort road, where many of the hotels and restaurants are located, it is just a short 1 kilometre walk down to the sea.
The popular Zante beach of Kalamaki is one of the longest on the island, stretching from Crystal beach right down to Laganas. 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.
You will enjoy swimming at Kalamaki beach – the water here, in the middle of the Gulf of Laganas, is always warm and clean. Kalamaki is a really popular spot for families because the beach is wide and the waters shallow so kids can safely play during their days at the beach in Zante.
The beach at Kalamaki has restricted opening times, closed from sunset to sunrise, due to the nesting times of the Caretta Caretta Loggerhead turtles. As the sun goes down all tourists are asked to leave the beach so that the turtles are not disturbed during their nesting process.
Zante is the main nesting ground for the Loggerhead turtles in the Mediterranean and 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 the opening times of the beaches, to ensure that the protected turtles are as unaffected by tourism as possible. All the way along Kalamaki beach there are National Marine Park Huts which are staffed by helpers who can provide you with more information on the Caretta Caretta Turtles.
