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.
Fab for families
Over in Tsilivi, there’s a family feel with oodles of sand, plenty of restaurants and a fab waterpark that calls for hours of fun. Kalamaki’s another good all-rounder with calm waters for kids and cocktail bars for the grown-ups. While authentic Alykes slows the pace on its Blue Flag sands if it’s peace and quiet you fancy.
