Kalamaki Beach, Kalamaki

4.2
#1 of 21 in Things to do in Kalamaki
A hidden gem of the Ionian Islands, Kalamaki Beach offers you a chance to practice your canoeing, kayaking, and windsurfing skills in relative peace. Despite its proximity to the busy resort town of Kalamaki, the beach remains relatively undiscovered by foreign tourists and maintains its relaxed island atmosphere. A nesting ground for the endangered loggerhead sea turtles, the beach is a key part of a national marine park. In order to protect the turtles, which you can often spot in the shallow water near the sand, local law prohibits water skiing and swimming after dark. Rent a pedal boat and spend a day exploring this protected stretch of the coastline. Our Kalamaki holiday planner makes visiting Kalamaki Beach and other Kalamaki attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

    Immediately adjacent to the airport of Zakynthos the coming and going of planes breaks the "poetry". Fairly crowded but its great size allows not to suffer more from time that aspect. in case of strong wind (as happened to us) becomes hard to resist a long time. the sea degrades slowly so I think this is suitable for those who, like me, have small children

    Kalamaki beach might not be the prettiest, but the sea here is calmer than a swimming pool. The views across the bay are incredible and the underwater gradient is so shallow you can walk out for ages ...  more »
