One of the most popular Greek islands, Zante is also known by the Greeks as Zakynthos.
It’s perfect for family holidays, with sun, sea, and sand on offer all year round. It’s also a very family-friendly island, with plenty of things to see and do for the little ones. Fancy trying your hand at some water sports?
Holidays to Zante are the perfect opportunity to try out something new, whether that’s getting upright on a set of water skis, or hanging on to a banana boat ride! Head away from the beach and inland and you’ll discover ancient olive groves and timeless villages, surrounded by beautiful countryside.
The island’s pristine beaches and family-friendly attractions ensure it’s the perfect destination for holidaymakers of all ages. Bohali village is a must-see, and its hillside location affords it spectacular views over Zante Town.
Well known for its nightlife, Zakynthos island (also known as Zante) is much more than Laganas’ nightclub strip. The Greek island may be home to a popular party resort, but for those who want to relax by the Ionian Sea, the beautiful beaches, scrumptious food and laid-back villages are something worth travelling for.
Whichever type of beach you prefer, Zakynthos’ coastline will not disappoint. Dotted with secluded inlets, rocky coves and sandy stretches, the island has a beach for every mood. South of the island, Laganas beach and its neighbour, Kalamaki beach, are popular soft shores. In the North East, Alykes beach offers a more tranquil setting, or for a more exciting beach day, Navagio Beach (also known as Shipwreck Beach) is a hidden cove in the North West.
Food & Drink
Souvlaki, moussaka, gyros and Greek salad are just a handful of the taste sensations that the nation has to offer. Tzatziki with bread, fresh fish and well, pretty much anything drizzled in locally produced olive oil, the list goes on and on. Wine connoisseurs can take a trip to the quaint, family run vineyards and wineries, and for those who love a good pint, a large Mythos is the refreshment you will remember.
Zakynthos is a Greek Island with many sides. Tranquil villages, popular tourist resorts and all of the history in between. The birthplace of the Greek national anthem’s writer, Dionysios Solomos, it is also considered a land of music and poetry.
Popular with both families and young people, Laganas is Zakynthos’ home to pubs, clubs and bars that buzz into the early hours of the morning. If you’re looking for a wild night out with friends, Laganas strip is the answer. If you prefer a more laid-back approach to your evenings, the quieter resorts like Alykes and Vasilikos feature plenty of places to enjoy a relaxing refreshment to end your day.
