Kalamaki, Zakynthos Island

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. The settlement is found one kilometer far from the sea and it counts some 650 permanent residents.

Several hotels of all categories, studios and rooms to let are available both within the village and in the area around. Most of them are open from April or May until October and offer full facilities.

The churches of Aghios Alypios and Aghia Kyriaki, within the village are interesting to see.

It is worth visiting the protected biotope of the sea-turtle caretta–caretta. Practically, the coastal area to the East and South of Kalamaki, up to the beaches of Secania and Dafni as well as the opposite islet of Pelouso is reserved for the reproduction of caretta-caretta. Camping and staying overnight is strictly not allowed, as lights and noise disturb the turtles and affect egg laying.

Luckily enough, the access to the beaches by car is not easy, which is good for the turtles and protects them enough from Man, often disturbing and sometimes dangerous for them.

Food is good and plenty both in taverns of the area; you will enjoy fresh fish and seafood and a variety of local, Greek and international dishes.

You will swim at the homonymous beach close to the settlement at the East, or at Gypsolithos (or Ypsolithos) some 2 kilometers at the West, where you will also admire the impressive rock on the beach.

For health problems, a local Medical Center is available at Pantocratoras (8 kilometers at the West); you may also address to the health services of the town of Zakynthos, 6 kilometers northern to the village.

Access from the town of Zakynthos (6 kilometers far away) is easy by taxi and by rented or private car and motorbikes.
