You’re just five minutes to the beach with shops, bars and restaurants along the same street at TUI SUNEO Cavo D’Oro. The décor is bright and fresh and the central pool area features a wooden deck lined with sun loungers, parasols, gardens and trees. The pool is a good size and children have their own shallow end and separate splash pool. A poolside bar is perfect for snacks and drinks during the day and kids can play in the playground. There’s even an indoor play zone to keep them entertained. Following a delicious international buffet served in the restaurant, grown-ups are treated to weekly live music acts and Greek-themed evenings.

Overview of Kalamaki, Zante

Kalamaki shares a wide bay and broad white-sand beach with the much livelier neighbouring resort of Laganas on the south coast of Zante. Also known as Zakynthos, this beautiful Ionian island lies off the Greek mainland and has earnt its popularity with British holidaymakers thanks to the Mediterranean climate, gorgeous beaches, turquoise sea and heavenly food. TUI SUNEO Cavo D’Oro is as warm and welcoming as the weather and the ideal base for experiencing the best of holidays to Zante. Laganas and the island capital – Zante Town – are both just 10 minutes away in a cab and it’s only three kilometres to the airport.

Things to do in Kalamaki, Zante

The white sand and turquoise water of Kalamaki’s beach is waiting for you, just 100 metres from TUI SUNEO Cavo D’Oro. Come here for peaceful sun worshipping, thanks to the lack of water sports due to this being a protected nesting ground for loggerhead turtles. If you want more action, book a boat trip to explore the shipwrecks, turtles and caves along the coast or take a bus to Zante Town for culture, history, shops and laid-back nightlife. Laganas, at the other end of the beach, is for all-night parties and beach clubs. If you want to dance until dawn, make your way to the Golden Mile.

Resort Summary

Kalamaki itself is serene and scenic. The impressive image of Mount Skopos stands at one end of the beach and the green landscape is sprinkled with beautiful wild flowers, grape vines and all manner of fruit and olive trees. Due to the conservation of the resident loggerhead turtles along the coast, the no-watersports policy here only adds to the ambience and tranquility along the white sands.

Once you feel rejuvenated and fancy some action, Kalamaki will continue to impress you with its host of wonderful excursions and experiences suitable for the whole family. Local tour operators offer daily cruise trips to nearby caves and coves where you can snorkel, sunbathe and spot loggerhead turtles in the clear water. Opportunities to traverse the rest of the island and its beautiful culture abound on package holidays to Zante, with the options of exploring on foot, bike, horseback or 4×4 with an experienced guide – and kids will love the mini golf course.

A short ten-minute taxi ride will find you in the historic and culturally rich capital of Zante Town. As the island’s commercial centre, you’ll catch a glimpse of the real Zante as you watch the island’s residents go about their business and dine at traditional, Zakynthian tavernas full of locals.

The nightlife in Kalamaki is nothing in comparison to the neighbouring party town of Laganas. Here you’ll find a great selection of cocktail bars and tavernas where you can enjoy entertainment, good conversation and fantastic cuisine. If you’re craving a foam party and a fish bowl, a ten-minute drive will find you on the Golden Mile in Laganas, surrounded by all kinds of guilty pleasures.
