Zante beach

The beaches, the food and the nightlife, whatever you seek out of a Greek getaway, Zakynthos has it. Also known as Zante, the island features quaint villages, stunning shores and lively resorts. From the Shipwreck beach to the Venetian Castle, you will find the perfect mix of exciting trips, non-stop parties and relaxing resorts throughout, all whilst by the Ionian Sea.

The variety of Zante’s shores are irresistible, each one with crystal-blue waters. Laganas and Kalamaki beaches on the south of the island are long, popular stretches of shore, great for beach days with friends and family. Alykes beach on the north east of the island is a quieter option, awarded with the blue flag it’s great for families with kids, plus there water sports available for those who seek a little more excitement. The main attraction, Shipwreck beach, is a cove reachable only by boat and holds scenic views and mystery behind the shipwreck itself.

Zakynthos is much more than the famous Laganas nightlife. Beautiful beaches fill the coastline and historic sites are found inland, from the mysterious Shipwreck beach to the Venetian castle, there is plenty to see on the island. After tourism, olive oil and wine production are the most prominent form of income, which is great for food and wine lovers.

Food & Drink
Savour the traditional Greek cuisine all over the island. If you’re a fan of meaty dishes, souvlaki and gyros are the local kebabs that aren’t to be missed. For those who prefer their vegetable and dairy dishes, the Greek salad is a refreshing yet filling option, or tsatziki is a dip consisting of mainly yoghurt and cucumber, that goes perfectly with fresh bread drizzled in olive oil.

Although the majority of the island is made up of peaceful villages, Laganas is a hotspot for buzzing nightlife. Filled with bars, clubs and pubs, the southern town attracts plenty of tourists each year for a holiday of sun, sea and non-stop partying. If you’re idea of a perfect night out is more reserved, the smaller resorts feature lovely little venues to enjoy a relaxing drink in the evening.
