Things to do

Zakynthos:

The city of Zakynthos on the islands of the same name, is both the capital city of the island, and the largest city on Zakynthos-Zante. Visit the Bochali Hill, which overlooks the town and features a Venetian-style castle. Zakynthos enjoys a long tradition of music including serving as the historic hub of Greece's opera tradition.

Navagio Beach:

Zakynthos-Zante is home to some of the finest beaches and vantage points in all of Greece! Visit the stunning Navagio beach, with white sands and clear waters surrounded by dramatic cliffs. The beach is accessible only by boat, and is a popular site for base jumpers. See the shipwreck of a boat from 1983.

Zante currant:

Be sure to sample the mouth-watering Greek cuisine on your trip. The Zante currant is native to the island of Zakynthos-Zante. The island also produces grapes, citrus fruit, currants, and olive oil. These simple ingredients pop up in the cuisine of the island, and are best enjoyed in long, luxurious meals with loved ones.

Blue Sea Caves:

Visit each of the three locations of the Blue Sea Caves that surround Zante. The first is located east of Skinari on north of island, the second at Keri, and the third at Porto Vromi. Each of these caves is filled with clear, deep blue waters, and are collectively accessible by boat tour.

Laganas:

Visit the resort at Laganas. This white-sand beach is nine miles long and is extremely popular during the tourist season. The resort is the largest of its kind on the island, and is exclusively for those aged 18-30. A variety of cuisines and beaches are available at Laganas.

Marathonisi:

The tiny, uninhabited and privately owned island of Marathonisi is a popular day trip from the town of Keri. From afar, it looks like a turtle and is known thus as "Turtle Island." Sample the fennel which grows wild alongside the oak and pine trees.

Weather in Zakynthos-Zante

Temperatures in the summer reach 30°C, but the lack of humidity makes this temperature enjoyable. Milder temperatures in the winter never dip below 10°C. January and February are the rainy months on Zakynthos. The Etesian wind system (also called the Meltemi) can cause problems for sailors in open sea water, but is ideal for those pursuing various watersports, such as windsurfing.

Travel to Zakynthos-Zante by plane, arriving at Zakynthos International Airport (ZTH). Flights arrive daily from both mainland Greece and other cities. Alternatively, both car-carrying ferries and catamarans traverse the Ionian Sea daily, and even more often in high tourist season.

                                Wonderful villa - perfectly situated

                                4 of 5
                                Dolce Luxury Suites is a wonderful place to stay. From the moment we booked the owners were in contact with us and ready to help us make the most of our holiday. They met us at the airport and were so kind and welcoming. The villas are really spacious, well decorated and a short walk from a beach. There is someone who does daily housekeeping and it all felt really clean and well maintained. The best thing is that you feel away from the crowds, there is a small shop nearby and the beach has a taverna overlooking it. I would totally recommend Psarou as a holiday destination for people who want some peace and quiet, a lovely sandy beach and welcoming hosts!

                                A magical place

                                5 of 5
                                A quiet oasis for everyone who wants to relax and/or explore beautiful Zante. The flats are stylishly decorated and have stunning views of the bay. Several rock or pebble beaches are only a few minutes' walk away and offer easy access to the crystal-clear sea. Two tavernas are within walking-distance, more can be found in the village of Limni Keri, about 1.5 kms away. The owners are very friendly and helpful! I'd recommend this beautiful spot to anyone.
