Kalimaki Beach Holidays
The attractive Kalamaki Beach has a long wide stretch of golden sand which slopes gently into the shallow, clear, blue sea and provides perfectly safe conditions for children and inexperienced swimmers. It is also home to a colony of loggerhead turtles, so water sports are not allowed but can be found in the nearby resorts of Laganas and Argassi.
Despite its growing popularity, the resort has remained a peaceful place where holidaymakers can relax and escape from the hustle and bustle of twenty first century living. It is worth taking a trip to the nearby Zante Town for a livelier vibe. Kalamaki provides a great location for walking or cycling amongst the olive groves in the attractive countryside whilst enjoying the views across the sea and inland to Mount Skopos. Take a trip inland to experience the traditional spirit of Greece with its quaint, delightful, picturesque villages and vineyards.
Nightlife and nearby Kalamaki
Allow yourself time to enjoy the local tavernas with their traditional fare and locally produced inexpensive wine. Reflecting the family-orientated nature of the resort nightlife is very low-key except for a few lively bars for the young and a hilltop disco. Most of the night life can be found in nearby Argasssi and Laganas, both minutes away by local bus or taxi.
For shopping Kalamaki is limited to providing the essentials and the usual gift and souvenir shops but with Zante Town only a short distance away you will find shops of every description. As with all islands fish is a huge part of the Greek diet with the day's catch featuring on almost all menus. Try the traditional Moussaka made with lamb and Mediterranean vegetables it is delicious. Also sample Mezedes, a variety of little dishes of fish, meat and vegetables to share, the Greek's answer to the Spanish tapas, along with the local wine for an inexpensive meal. All restaurants cater very well for children.
