A holiday on Zakynthos

The island of Zakynthos awaits. Located in the Ionian Sea, Zakynthos is an island rich in geological formations. Visit the stunning Navagio Beach, secluded and blocked off from the outside world, and only accessible by boat. Learn about the phenomenon that occurred here in 2006, an 'earthquake swarm' that shocked and baffled the Greek scientific community at the time. No matter what brings one to this charming Greek island, let HomeAway make finding the perfect villa on Zakynthos-Zante a quick and hassle-free process.

For couples and single families, HomeAway offers many different types of apartments on Zakynthos-Zante to best suit any group's needs. When planning a Greek holiday with extended family or just a large group of friends, HomeAway recommends choosing from one of over 80 Zakynthos-Zante villas. These properties come in a variety of sizes and with an array of available amenities, such as balconies, swimming pools, and full-size kitchens.

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

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. Sea taxis and boat rental are also available once on the island of Zakynthos. Several of the beaches are only accessible by boat.

Lovely holiday

5 of 5
Had a wonderful time. Such a peaceful location. The family were very caring and we had really good service. Breakfast was good and we also enjoyed many nice meals at the Ampoula Beach Restaurant-the extra discount was very welcome. The apartments /villas are not a luxury standard but are very clean (cleaned daily) and comfortable. Would recommend anyone to stay there.
