We are flying out to the beautiful Kalamaki on the 3rd August - 15 weeks and can't wait!!!

We have been here 4 years running , but missed last year as we were on honeymoon in Cuba!
Been in all different months , July + August are by far the best!
Weather is amazing - but very very hot! even in the shade!
If you like it hot - but not too hot go in June ..
If you like it quiet as its downtime (in case nobody knows closes down in end of Oct) - and just warm go in September!
We're staying at Dennys Inn hotel - its amazing, so friendly - its like a 2nd home to us!

in zante right now!!!weather is great not had a bad day since we arrived 2 weeks on saturday not lookin forward to going back home. 1 problem is the hotel we stay in has no air con so if u visit zante at this time of year Make sure ur room has air conEmbarrassed

it is a great island to visit and to see turtles in the sea like i did todayTongue

we went early august and found it very hot on reflection probably too hot, but you can go in the pool to cool off. air con is a must.will probably go when it is a bit cooler next time.

I've been to Laganas 3 times...October last year, May and August this year and August was by far the best time for us. Loads busier and better weather...although the streets are abit untidier due to all the drunkards!!

Arrived Back Monday 28th August after two glorious weeks in the sun

Temperature reaching 44 most days and a not so chillie 30-35 most evenings
had one morning a bit cloudly for about 3 hours, but then the sun came out
Lovely island to visit
Enjoyed to Festival of St Dennis on 24th August, which takes place every year in Zante Town, well worth the visit

Good time to go if you like the heat! Got a good tan

If you like it hot then this is the time to go, although we did experience one of the most spectacular thunder and lightening storms in our second week. Would recommend the boat trip out of Tsivili from the Levante Speedboat - details available on this website. I've posted comments re this trip. The water park is well worth a trip but do make your own arrangements as it is easily accesible and very much cheaper. Be warned that at Kalamaki you will get great views of the planes coming into land, but it is quite exciting. This year was our second trip to Zante after last year - we all fell in love with the island and will be returning next year - already booked. Have a good holiday!

Just got back was slightly red hot 38 in the shade 40+ on beachGOOD NEWS  everybody on a return visit will be pleased to know the NEW ARRIVALS TERMINAL at the Airport is open.  HOORAY.  Two conveyorbelts NO MORE 2 hour waits for luggage for those of you that arrive on the really busy days of Sunday & Thursday and whats more it's fully air-condisioned (we nearly fainted) not with heat but SHOCK..  After 12 years of the hussle & bussle of the old terminal this Ultra Modern building is open.  MIND YOU it is not finished yet but is still massive improvement.

August is the best time Zante laganas is buzzing and the weather is really hot great for tans

Just got back from Tsilivi on Monday. Weather is still scorching hot! The resort is ideal for families and older people at this time of year, because the main season has finished and it is a lot quieter, especially at night. The beaches were quite empty last week, in comparison to the first week that we were there. A truly beautiful place - the best holiday we have ever had. Forget the trips, use the local buses to Zante and Laganas. They are so cheap and you see more of the real Zakynthos.


last friday in alykes the temp was 45 degrees C and about 118 farenheit!

Went to Tsilivi 12.08.03 for 2 weeks. Stayed at Zante Star Apartments and thought they were excellent. Tsilivi has a wonderful selection of bars and restaurants to coner every taste and age. We hired a car and explored the Island a bit. Found Tsilivi beach to have lots of dead sea-weed on it, which put me off at first, but it was so safe (shallow) for our two young children, that we soon forgot about that small issue. Food bar on beach excellent - good choice and excellent value for money, and the 'Fruit Salad & Doughnut' man was a godsend.
Anyone visiting will not be disappointed. Visit the Family Bar & Popeyes for the children, and also the Red Lion at the top of the hill.
