Surreal sunset in Kalamki

It was a hot and very hazy day on Sunday, but the cloud shifted before sunset giving this display. This is straight from the camera and hasn't been enhanched in any way.

Kalamaki Summary:

Kalamaki has changed quite a bit over the years and the resort is now spread out over a fairly large area. Fortunately most of the development has been concentrated on the main Kalamaki to Laganas road leaving the beach area and back roads relatively undisturbed. The original character of the resort is still there. The bars, restaurants and people who first made it popular are still here. It's the closest resort to the airport and although there are no night flights, several planes land just after 6.00 AM. Only the western part of the resort is affected and otherwise the resort is fairly quiet and relaxing. It's a good location on the island, close to Laganas, Zante Town and Argassi.

Beaches near Kalamaki:

Aghios Sostis Beach  (0 Comments)
Aghios Sostis BeachA small family friendly place with a sandy beach and shallow water also offering boat trips to Marathonisi Island and the Keri Caves
Argassi Beach  (138 Comments)
Argassi BeachOften criticised, mainly because in many places there is no beach! At least the water is shallow with a sandy bottom making it good for bathing.

Kalamaki Beach  (209 Comments)
Kalamaki BeachProbably the best place to actually see a turtle. Just wade about in the shallow water and if they are about you will soon spot one.
Laganas Beach  (162 Comments)
Laganas BeachIt's as busy as you'd expect from a Club 18-30 resort, but keep walking and you'll find a long stretch of beach where development has been prevented by the Marine Park.
