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.

Beaches
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.

Culture
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.

Nightlife
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.

Things To Do on Zante Holidays

Turtle Spotting
Nothing makes you feel like you’re on holiday more than seeing turtles first-hand in the sea. There are plenty of boat trips on offer to see the majestic creatures in their natural habitat and venture around the island’s rugged coastline and caves. Make sure to do your research beforehand, as turtles may not be as easy to find during their mating season.

Zakynthos Town
Explore the wonderful island’s capital city and experience the enchanting ambience that leaves tourists re-visiting Greece year after year. Wander through the rustic streets and visit Agiou Markou Square. Agios Dionisios Church is a must-see when in the area, a magnificent piece of architecture, which will leave you stunned. If you’re a lover of seafood, you can end your night perfectly by dining at one of the seafront restaurants for a delightfully fresh dinner with a view.

Shipwreck Beach
Reachable only by boat, Navagio Beach is a small cove on the North West of the island. With the main focus being the ruins of an abandoned freightliner, the sometimes named ‘Smuggler’s Cove’ has an exciting air of mystery about it. Once the shipwreck has been explored, the beach itself offers stunning views with white, rocky sand and crystal blue waters.

Venetian Castle
Situated at the top of Bohali hill, the Venetian Castle of Zakynthos is a spectacular piece of history that shouldn’t be missed. Learn about the castle’s past and the interesting facts surrounding it whilst taking in the jaw-dropping views. A lovely day out and a perfect chance to get some stunning photos.
