Kalamaki Beach is a beautiful sandy beach located on the south coast of Zakynthos, close to the popular resort of Laganas.
Kalamaki Beach is part of the National Marine Park of Zakynthos, which is dedicated to the protection and conservation of the Loggerhead sea turtle (Caretta caretta). The beach is a nesting site for the turtles, so visitors are asked to respect the marked nesting areas and not disturb the turtles or their eggs.
The sea at Kalamaki Beach is usually calm and shallow, making it perfect for swimming and the impressive rock faces provide incredible photo opportunities and viewpoints. There are several beach bars and tavernas along the beach offering refreshments, snacks, and full meals. Sun loungers and umbrellas are also available for rent.
The surrounding area of Kalamaki is relatively undeveloped, with natural greenery and olive groves. The beach is easily accessible by car or by bus from Zakynthos Town or Laganas. There is a large parking area available for those arriving by car.
Overall, Kalamaki Beach is a great place to spend a day enjoying the sun, sea, and sand, while also being close to a range of amenities and activities. Its stunning natural beauty, protected status, and easy accessibility make it a popular choice for visitors to Zakynthos.
