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

Jersey is lined with rocky coastline and picturesque bays. When you set eyes on the golden sand and bright blue waters, you’ll find it hard to believe that you’re not in one of the sizzling Spanish beach resorts! Enjoy relaxing in a beach-side café as you watch the world go by.
