Holidays to Zakynthos (Zante)
As the southernmost of the Ionian Islands, clustered close to the Greek mainland, Zakynthos (Zante) enjoys warm, sunny weather throughout spring and summer. It’s what ensures your time spent by the beach will be reliably great. However, you can also attribute your enjoyment to the sheer beauty offered by more than 70 miles of stunning coastline. Put simply, Zakynthos (Zante) offers you some of the most idyllic strips of sand in the entire Mediterranean. The Navagio Beach (also known as Smuggler’s Cove) is a case in point. Its powdery sand, aged shipwreck and startlingly bright white cliffs look so perfect, it seems as if it was created for the finest oil painting you could imagine.
Experience the bright lights of the lively south
Every day feels like a Friday when you have your holidays in Laganas! In the bustling south of the island, Laganas is a world away from the quiet coves of the north. Nights out are never boring here, as Laganas keeps things fresh with more than 100 bars and clubs, all packed around the party hotspot known as the Strip. By night, this long street is lit up with the neon glow of cocktail bars with open-air terraces. You’ll also hear a pulsing dance beat as the soundtrack to nights out in Laganas, with free-entry clubs dotted around the centre of the resort.
Fantastic holidays for families
But it’s not all about partying the night away in the south of Zakynthos (Zante)! The neighbouring resort of Kalamaki has a more peaceful atmosphere and authentic Greek tavernas. Plus, transfer times from the airport are incredibly short and you’ll still be right by Laganas Bay – its calm, shallow waters are ideal for safe swimming for children. For the biggest choice of activities, Tsilivi along the central coastline is your best option. Fascinating museums, fun waterparks and mini golf courses will all be within your reach.
Peaceful holidays in Zakynthos (Zante)
Escape to the relaxing retreats to the north of the island and you’ll have ample opportunity to unwind. Alykes sits close to the stunning beach in Xigia, which rivals Smuggler’s Cove for the dramatic depth of its cliffs. It’s a place of total isolation, your sense of serenity aided by the thermal sulphur waters, rich with natural nutrients and minerals that seep from the submerged rocks. You’ll also be in the perfect position to explore inland, especially the narrow winding streets that make up the radiant white village of Volimes, where locals still sell handicrafts and fresh fruit from the front of their houses. The neighbouring resort of Alykanas has a similar atmosphere and is close to the inland countryside of olive groves and delicate jasmine flowers. It’s also easy to venture north from here and see white stone arches rising from the sea at the Blue Caves of Cape Skinari.
As soon as you arrive in Tsilivi you’ll understand why it’s one of the most popular resorts on the inviting island of Zante. A relaxed atmosphere pervades throughout the town, and yet it still has many attractions and activities to keep you entertained.
