Laganas vs. Kalamaki

Laganas vs. Kalamaki


I'm not an experienced traveler and on a tight budget. We (20 & 30 years old) want to do a couple holiday (no party holiday) in Greece at the end of August into September.

At the moment the decision lies between Laganas (Nemesis, Aphrodite Studios or Paradise Apartments) and Kalamaki (Marelen Hotel or Costas Apartments).

My concern is that Laganas might be too loud and too busy. I'm fine with party but I would like to be able to rest too. Is Kalamaki the perfect choice as the travel to Laganas is easy, short and cheap (taxi or walk) or would you recommend just going straight to Laganas?

If so, which Hotel can you experienced travelers recommend?

Thank you a lot and greetings from Germany!

Kalamaki would be my advice although I've never stayed there. It has a lovely beach, a good choice of bars and restaurants and is close enough to Laganas if you feel that you want to party one night.

As said Kalamaki has all you need for a holiday but the added bonus of a stroll to Laganas if you fancy clubbing and jut a few euros in a taxi back to Kalamaki.
