Beaches - Kalamaki Zante - Zakynthos Island Greece
Resorts and Beaches Kalamaki beach is a long sandy beach with shallow blue waters, perfect for children to play. It is a continuation of the famous Laganas beach. There are more than one access points where there is also space for parking.
You will find organized parts with canteens for refreshments, scenic traditional tavernas or hotel restaurants and pools that lead to the beach. There are also a few quiet parts on the beach with no direct access where you can enjoy peace and quiet, sunbathing and swimming along with few people. You have the chance to admire an emplacement from the Second World War that is located over the beach. Staying on the beach until late is not permitted in many parts as it is protected from the National Marine Park.
The endangered Caretta Caretta turtles choose Kalamaki beach to lay their eggs and thus it is forbidden to stick umbrellas in some parts that are marked as nesting areas. This is also the reason there are no crowded beach bars or other shops right on the beach.
