Zante

Zante holidays


Just off the south-west tip of mainland Greece, Zante is a glimmering Ionian Sea jewel, where families come to relax, clubbers come to party and sea turtles come to nest. Coves of curving azure water and sun-speckled sand are set to enchant, with cobbled streets opening to excite foodies and shoppers.

Nesting beauty

Zante’s stunning coast is lined with sandy beaches, rocky coves, dramatic cliffs and hidden sea caves. Further inland, lush olive groves and lemon trees give way to rolling hills. In summer, loggerhead turtles swim all the way from Africa to Zante to lay their eggs in the island’s golden grains.

A world-class party scene

If you’re looking for a no-bass-spared after-dark scene, Zante’s totally kitted out for your every clubbing desire. The cutting-edge venues in Laganas attract the sort of big-name superstar DJs you’d expect to see in Ibiza. And the parties on the beach are legendary – they kick on right until morning.

Tsilivi

From its golden sands to quaint tavernas, Tsilivi is a top beachfront pick that has retained its traditional Greek town feel.

Kalamaki

An idyllic choice for relaxing and unwinding on a gold-flecked beach, Kalamaki’s shores meet up with Laganas Bay, so keep your eyes peeled for loggerhead turtles.

Laganas

Fizzing nightlife and miles of sand make Laganas one of the most sought-after locations in all of Zante.

Argassi

Small but sweet, this compact resort centres around terracotta-topped buildings and a smattering of bars, restaurants and souvenir shops.

Alykes

Alykes has a very authentic way about it. The intriguing salt flats are the place to start – prepare to be wowed.

Alykanas

This small, typically Greek village is surrounded by dreamy bright blue seas in north-eastern Zante.

Stavros Bochali

Lose yourself in the calming sea views stretching out as far as the eye can see.

Vassilikos

Vassilikos takes up a good amount of the southern part of the island, so it’s got a little more than your ordinary small resort.

Aghios Sostis

A coastline less littered with parasols than your typical Zante resorts is waiting, so find yourself a sandy spot and settle down.

Keri

Watch warm waters bubble against the sand. Keri’s best known for its lighthouse and luscious lake.

Kypseli

Dotted with bougainvillea and traditional buildings and churches, Kypseli extends across a beach, town and valley area, nestled right within the coastline.

Tragaki

Verdant headland encases deep, clear aquamarine ocean, creating Tragaki’s sensational views.

Beaches

For sheer fun in the sun, you’ll find plenty of extensive stretches of Blue Flag beach all across the Costa. But if you want to get away from it all, there are cooler, lesser-known shingle patches to sprawl out on, too. Palm-fringed pathways line these gorgeous seaside spots.

Sights

Castles, chapels, traditional towns and more classic Spanish features dot this coastal region. There are loads of epic sights to see in the resorts, while statues and palaces full of mosaics, hidden courtyards and gently playing fountains make for wonderful day trips, should you prefer to venture further out.

Activities

Make sure you save time for water and theme parks! Aqualand in Torremolinos is the biggest around here, with hair-raising slides to suit adrenaline junkies as well as calmer versions for little ones. Botanical gardens are ideal for strolling around, while immaculate golf courses offer an active side for sportspeople.

Eating and drinking

Cool down the Costa del Sol way with refreshing cold soup. You could try some of the white garlic recipe made with almonds, or a typical gazpacho. Seafood and international dishes are real winners too – especially if you fancy tucking in along the harbour or in the usual Brit-friendly pubs.

Shopping

You’ll find malls, stores and souvenir shops all around the Costal del Sol, but for chic boutiques, Marbella and Puerto Banús are the places to go. Fuengirola has a brilliant complex housing all of your favourite chains, while local markets are great for buying fresh goods and trying out your haggling.

Nightlife

Torremolinos wears the Costa del Sol nightlife crown, but you won’t be short of neon-lit joints and pint-pulling pubs wherever you go. Head to the centre of town in Torremolinos for an array of clubs, live acts, discos and bars, or get dolled up for party nights in the glitzier resorts.
