Mesmerizing natural beauty of Zakynthos (aka Zante) is a perfect backdrop for a “la dolce vita” lifestyle. The third largest Greek island is located in the Ionian Sea off the west coast of Greece. It abounds in golden sand beaches surrounded by limestone cliffs, amazing caves and serene turquoise waters. The noble, charming and fertile Zante with distinct Venetian influence boasts a turbulent history with successively changing possessors and cultures. Nowadays, it is a glamorous world-renowned resort luring nature lovers, adventure-seekers and luxury travellers.
Beachfront family-friendly resorts, boutique hotels with spa, luxury villas with infinity pools and lush gardens are on offer in Laganas, Tsilivi, Kalamaki, Vasilikos, Argasi, Kerion and Akrotiri. Zante is a fascinating place to explore: from Zakynthos Town, its Bohali district, the Venetian Castle, shopping for high quality jewellery and local wines to forested wilderness and hilltop rural villages with local tavernas serving delicious Zakynthian dishes under evening kantades.
Take a round-the-island boat tour for snorkelling and swimming in the famous Blue Caves and hidden Navagio (Shipwreck) beach. Lounge on the fabulous beaches of Gerakas, Marathonisi and Sakania, behold the endangered Caretta Caretta sea turtles. Active types can indulge in parasailing, jet skiing, jeep safaris, horse riding along the Turtles Bay or a crazy nightlife in local clubs.
