It’s no mystery why Zante is popular with nature lovers: with so many beaches devoted to the preservation of endangered turtle species, your chances of a once-in-a-lifetime wildlife encounter are sky high.
One of the best bases for animal lovers is the southern village of Kalamaki. Hotels and apartments are kept off the beach to protect turtle nests, but it’s a short walk to Kalamaki’s sandy shores where early risers might just get lucky and see an egg hatch.
During the day, you can explore the shops and taverns in town, hire a pedalo for a close-up look at Loggerhead turtles, or enjoy a coastal horseback ride. There are also plenty of activities for kids and a wide array of restaurants, not just traditional Greek tavernas but also international eateries.
