Zante is a beautiful Greek Island blessed with idyllic coastline and forested mountains. Famous as a beach holiday destination, there are also a number of historic sights to explore. Kalamaki is a particularly beautiful beach resort on the Greek Island of Zante.
Pick up the keys to your Avis car hired from Zante Airport and you’ll be just a short drive from the popular seaside resort of Kalamaki, as well as the capital city – Zakynthos Town.
The stylish resort town of Kalamaki is just a 10-minute drive from Zante Airport. Boasting excellent beaches with shallow waters and a relaxed atmosphere, this is a firm favourite with families.
Kalamaki is most famous for its Caretta sea turtles, who swim for thousands of kilometres each year (between July and August) just to lay their eggs in the soft sands of the beach. Visitors are asked to leave the turtles alone during this time, but you can still take a glass-bottomed boat trip to watch them in their natural environment.
There are an array of restaurants and shops in the town too. The market in Kalamaki is a great place to pick up souvenirs and try local sweets like mandolato and pasteli.
From Kalamaki, you’re also within easy reach of the island’s capital Zakynthos Town – just a 15-minute drive away. This is where most of the island’s cultural attractions lie.
The ancient Venetian Castle of Zakynthos overlooks the city and is well worth visiting, as is the Byzantine Museum. Housed within the 16th century St Andreas Monastery, the museum features a selection of ecclesiastical art works and restored frescoes. Other important sights include the Church of Dionysius, which displays scrolls from the 13th and 14th centuries.
Explore Kalamaki and Zakynthos Town with ease from the comfort of your Avis rental car.
