Zakynthos

Zakynthos

Zakynthos (also know as Zante) is the southernmost and third largest of the Ionian Islands and is situated south of Kefalonia and west of Peloponnese. Since the Middle Ages, the Venetians who ruled the island used to call it as "Fior di Levante", which means "Flower of the East", fair enough to say as nowadays, Zakynthos is thought to be one of the most charming destinations in Greece. A place full of contrasts, it seduces its visitors with its many picturesque villages, its imaginary sightseeing like the Blue Caves or the world-famous beach of Shipwreck (Navagio) and its long culture heritage, which travels through the centuries.

While you are on holiday in Zante, make sure you enjoy the beautiful beach at Shipwreck ‘Navagio’ Bay, one of the most famous beaches in the Mediterranean. Navagio is located on the north-west shore of Zakynthos. And is perhaps the most famous tourist site in Zakynthos. Better known as Shipwreck Bay, this isolated sandy cove is banked on all sides by towering limestone cliffs at 'Smugglers Cove' and the azure-blue sea. On the sand is the wreck of the ship Panagiotis, which is believed to have been involved in some smuggling activity when it got into trouble and washed ashore in 1981. Since then, it has become the trademark of Zakynthos.

Its sandy beaches, the picturesque underground caves, the verdant olive groves and the rare Caretta Caretta turtle species, are just some of the attractions that the fascinating Zakynthian landscape has to offer.

You can arrange diving trips to Marathonisi (Turtle Island) and the blue Keri Caves, filling your holiday memories with the most impressive images of natural beauty. If you wish to have a taste of the traditional architecture of the island, do not forget to visit the picturesque Sarakina village, and enjoy a nice walk to the scenic island of Saint Sostis, also known as Cameo, that is easily accessible by a small wooden bridge.
