Holidays to
Kalamaki

Zante in the slow lane

The seaside resort of Kalamaki faces an untouched, expansive cove, so it’s a magnet for beach lovers. If you’re lucky, you might catch sight of the Caretta sea turtle here, which is an endangered species known for living in the waters and coves around the island. 
The turtle nesting beaches sit just 150 metres from the charming Old Town, making it a good place to stop off after a day of snorkelling in the Mediterranean waters. This is traditional Greece at its best – authentic tavernas and cutesy souvenir shops, stuffed down spindly alleyways framed with blooms, and lined up along sleepy cobbled squares. 

During the summer months it can get quite busy, but there are plenty of places to seek respite on holidays to Kalamaki. For a proper breather, head out into the countryside in a 4x4 or explore on two wheels.
