Why go to Kalamaki

Peaceful Kalamaki has retained the charms and slow pace of typical village life in Greece, while hosting an excellent array of facilities for holidaymakers looking for a quiet, comfortable location to soak up the sun.

Enjoy a sophisticated dose of solitude on holidays in Kalamaki, a chic resort in the south-east of the Greek island of Zante.

The beautiful Ionian island of Zante, also known as Zakynthos, sits off the western shoreline of mainland Greece and enjoys week upon week of uninterrupted sunshine. Sun-baked relaxation is usually top of the agenda on Kalamaki holidays, which are popular with couples, quiet families and other travellers who don't need the pounding beats of a nightclub to round off an evening.

There are many excellent hotels in the resort that will enable you to unwind, with poolside bar service and spa treatments on tap. Self-catering accommodation is also a good option in Kalamaki, though, with a range of villa and apartment holidays to choose from. And wherever you stay, a visit to Kalamaki's main beach, or one of the secluded coves that pepper the coast, is a must during your stay. This isn't an overcrowded resort, so you can find a peaceful spot wherever you lay your towel. In fact, you're more likely to be sharing the beach with the loggerhead turtles that come ashore of an evening and lay their eggs than with hoards of other tourists. Seeing them in their natural habitat, in both Kalamaki and the nearby resort of Laganas (which is the place to go for sunset cocktails and late-night partying), is well worth giving up access to some parts of the local beaches so that they can come ashore in peace.

Laidback Kalamaki is just a short hop from Zakynthos International Airport (ZTH), which means holidays in this resort can begin within minutes of arrival (after a flight time from the UK of around four hours). So why not hire a car to get from the airport and use it to see more of this green and lovely island during your stay? Popular day trips include Zante Town for rich flavours of Greece and Navagio, or ‘shipwreck’, Beach, which will take your breath away. It can be reached via day trips on board boats that depart from harbours around the island.

*ATOL (Air Travel Organiser's Licence) is a financial protection scheme for package holidays: It provides support to consumers in the event their holiday provider collapses. Booking with an ATOL holder ensures that you won't be left out of pocket and you won't be left stranded abroad. All package holidays compared using TravelSupermarket are protected by ATOL.

ABTA (Association of British Travel Agents) offers similar cover for packages booked with its members. However, while ATOL predominantly covers flight-based packages, ABTA covers non-flight based holidays (such as rail and cruise) and linked travel arrangements. If you are unsure whether or not your trip is covered by ABTA, check with your provider.
