Nestling on the south coast of the Greek island of Zante, the resort of Kalamaki is a beach-lovers paradise. With soft white sands that stretch deep and long, washed by the warm, blue waters of the Ionian Sea and in a rural setting that will take your breath away; Kalamaki is the ultimate destination in which to relax. The rustic village is spread across beautiful countryside which is scattered with aromatic olive groves and creates a peaceful setting that will enhance your feelings of harmony and well being. Kalamaki holidays are perfect for soaking up the traditional Greek atmosphere while relaxing under the warm glow of the sun.
Amenities on Kalamaki holidays are relatively low key; with Zante’s party capital of Laganas only a couple of miles away, this offers visitors the choice of quiet relaxed evenings or a racier atmosphere nearby. A couple of markets and shops will cater for all your holiday essentials as well as a handful of mementos and souvenirs. Dining options on Kalamaki holidays come mainly in the form of traditional family-run Greek tavernas where you can sample the delights of rustic Greek cuisine. There are also some music bars and restaurants should your tastes require something a bit more international. There is even a disco located up the hill, providing a livelier option for some yet keeping the noise levels down for those who do not wish to visit it.
The long, golden beach at Kalamaki is home to a colony of loggerhead turtles that nest here in the summer. While on holiday in Kalamaki you may wish to take advantage of the boating excursions that set sail to spot them or even set out on your own expedition in a pedalo or canoe. It is due to the turtles nesting here that motorised water sports have been banished from the beach in Kalamaki but in nearby Tsilivi or Vassilikos you can try out all the holiday favourites such as water skiing, jet skiing, para sailing or banana boat rides. You may also wish to explore the surrounding countryside on scenic walks or leisurely bicycle rides.
The scattering of shops, restaurants, tavernas and bars provide a friendly and welcoming atmosphere meaning Kalamaki holidays are great for families and couples visiting the resort. Amongst the Greek eateries you can find a range of international cuisine to suit your taste. Although the emphasis is on low key and relaxing, there are some lively bars where you can find quiz nights and karaoke and a walk up the hill will bring you to Kalamaki’s lively disco. If you really fancy something more energetic, the party resort of Laganas is only a stone’s throw away.
