What's Kiliomenos like

Kiliomenos is a small settlement close to the centre of Zakynthos island, it’s not far from Macherado and just 18km from the islands capital Zakynthos Town which is around a half an hours drive.

Its forested mountain setting is home to beautiful walking trails, and the town itself is a bastion of traditional architecture, with old stone houses dating all the way back to the 16th century and an incredible Gothic belfry from 1893 adorning its central church of St. Nikolaos.

The shopping here can’t be beaten – a local women’s cooperative peddles fresh, organic products including local olive oil, wine, honey, vinegar, herbs, cheese, soap, candles, sweets, liqueurs, weaving, knitting, embroidery, jewellery, ornaments, and more. It’s the best place on the island to pick up authentic souvenirs showcasing Zakynthos Islands rich cultural heritage.

Despite it’s small size, you’ll still find a number of apartments and villas available to stay in as well as a handful of restaurants for your lunch or evening meal. There’s not much else though so don’t expect to have the sort of tourist facilities that you get in the more popular destinations.

Kiliomenos is ideal for people that want to get away from the crowds, whether that’s for a day trip, an afternoon or for your entire holiday.

Kiliomenos nightlife

With just a handful of tavernas in the village you can probably guess that nightlife is virtually non-existent. There's no live music, Greek nights or other entertainment so the evenings in Kiliomenos will consist of enjoying a meal and a few drinks and that's about it.

What to do around Kiliomenos

Kiliomenos is in a decent location for exploring the southern region of Zakynthos island, it'll take around 20 minutes to get to any of Laganas, Keri or Porto Limnionas beach with the Damianos caves being under 15 minutes to the south of the village, close to Agalas.
