A holiday on Zakynthos

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.

The pool was larger than appears in photos plenty of space for the kids to play it is the same depth throughout. Dionisios was very kind and kept in contact throughout the week via WhatsApp. One morning he brought us a Greek desert to try. We also had a cleaner every day which made us feel very spoilt. I would highly recommend the shoestring bar and beach as it was a hidden little piece of heaven. Do be careful in what car you choose, the roads are very narrow in places so the smaller the better.

Dionisis, the owner is a very polite and helpful man who works very hard to make sure your stay is a comfortable one! We stayed in a two bedroom apartment. It is very spacious, has all the amenities you would need for self catering, fully air conditioned, and a lovely balcony to sit out on with views of the bay between Zakynthos and Kefalonia. There is a restaurant on site that is family run. Food is traditional, simple and delicious, and well priced. If you want to take advantage of self-catering there is a small market 2 mins walk up the road. The pool area is modern and clean with a fenced off area for young children. The area itself is very quiet, so I would recommend Car Hire if you want to get around, although there are two beaches (Psarou & Amoudi) in very short walking distance. And Alikanas is about a 10 min walk that has a few more shops and tavernas. Overall a very quiet and relaxing studio complex, which is clean and the service is excellent!
