Lovely beach, safe paddling/swimming gently sloping sand. Sunbed hire at reasonable prices and numerous beach front bars and restaurants. You can walk right down past Laganas to Agios Sostis and stop of breaks at the various bars etc.

From kalimaki to Zante town it's about €3 so about twice that distance should be about approx €6 depending how friendly the bus driver is. Taxis are reasonable, if you ask your rep/receptionist, they should help. Car hire is... More

We might reconsider about going in July next year and revert to May which was when we used to go when the kids were small ( Get to see the fireflies again. ) Sounds like you love Sidari as...More

Hi I'll be visiting Corfu in August & I'm going to hire a car for 2 days. I'll be staying in Kassiopi. I intend to drive to Mt Pantokrator & from there I wish to visit some nearby villages. Is it advisable to visit Spartilas? Are there any interesting thing to see please. I'll be also visiting Kalamaki beach, Strinilas & Acharavi. Any suggestions please. Thanks

The view from Spartilas is breathtaking - you could also venture around the hillside to Strinilas and have lunch in my favourite restaurant - 'A La Palaia.' Steve

There was a post recently on Facebook about a wedding ring found on Kalamaki beach? Zakynthos Zante Informer Facebook group was the place. Join the group & either search or add a question. Good luck.
