Top Kalamaki Hotels
Kalamaki has a Mediterranean climate meaning it is hot and sunny all summer long and pleasantly mild in the winter. The best time to come on your Greek Island holiday is April to September when the temperatures are at their zenith, all the restaurants and bars are open and the water is warmest. If you visit Zante in the peak summer months, don't forget your sun cream - you'll need it!
Winters in Zante are cooler with the chance of an odd shower. It is very rarely anything less than cool so while you may want to bring a sweater for the evenings you'll still get to enjoy the sun during the day.
Kalamaki has one of the most beautiful beaches on the island. The white sands and crystal blue waters make it a favourite with tourists and locals alike. There's plenty of sun loungers, deck chairs and umbrellas so you're sure to find a great sunbathing spot.
This is quintessential Greek countryside with long beaches, steep cliffs and green hillsides all round. There's no shortage of memorable vantage points for the perfect backdrop in your holiday photos!
Things To Do on Kalamaki Holidays
There's plenty to do in Kalamaki including crazy golf and a reptile house which the kids will love. If you fancy taking in some scenery take a walk into the nearby resort of Laganas. The main attraction though is the stunning beach, which is really a continuation of Lagan Beach. This long stretch of soft sand is fringed on either side by magnificent cliffs.
If you visit Kalamaki at the right time you might just be able to spot the Caretta turtles who come back to the same beaches to lay their eggs.
Zakynthos was flattened by an earthquake in 1953 and only one building in Kalamaki survived. However many of the buildings, especially the churches were rebuilt and are extremely popular with tourists and locals alike.
Kalamaki has some great bars, the Safari bar being one of the most popular, but the best thing about it is its restaurants. Authentic tavernas offer fresh fish and delicious Greek cuisine all day and into the night. Michaelos, to the north of the resort is one of the best tavernas anywhere in Zante.
As far as clubbing and late nights out dancing goes, Kalamaki is not for you. If it is late night partying that you want, then head to nearby Laganas.
