Kampi, sometimes also known as Kambi is a tiny village in the middle of the west coast of Zakynthos
. It’s about 26 km west of Zakynthos Town
and that would be about a 45 minute drive.
This largely agricultural village has less than 100 residents, it’s surrounded by olive groves and vineyards that have defined Greek culture for centuries.
As you might expect from such a tiny village, there are minimal tourist facilities in Kampi, just a couple of villas to rent and a couple of tavernas on the outskirts but that’s about it. There’s no ATMs, no vehicle hire shops and no supermarkets.
Just north of the village is a large 5* hotel so if you want to stay somewhere out of the way but still be in a place with some great facilities then this could be a good option for you.
The main reason that people visit Kampi is the sunset views, stake out a spot at one of the restaurants that overlook the cliffs just outside the village centre and be treated to stunning views as the sun goes down.
As there's no bars or any other evening entertainment in the village itself it's hard to recommend Kampi to anyone who wants a night out.
That said, there's a collection of restaurants just outside the village that all offer stunning views over the Ionian sea and the Zakynthos coastline. There's are a popular choice for sunset meals and somewhere that everyone should try and spend at least one evening if they can.
Also nearby is the Mycenaean cemetery which consist of 14 graves carved out of the rocks and some informational signs explaining what was found when excavations took place in the early 1970s, it’s worth popping by if you’re in the area but can be tricky to find and get to due to poor roads leading there.
