Zakynthos (Zante), the third largest island in the Ionian Sea is a magnificent verdant island with fertile valleys, an impressive coastline with sandy beaches, striking secluded coves and dramatic rugged cliffs.
The Venetians called the island “Fioro di Levante” (flower of the East) due to its impressive fertility and made it the gem of their empire, leaving their stamp on Zante island. Saint Mark square, the Venetian Castle, Solomos square named after the poet Dionisios Solomos who wrote the “Hymn to Liberty” which became later the Greek National Anthem, are some of the hidden gems of Zakynthos Town, the capital of the island.
Authentic traditional villages with stone houses and cobblestone streets, beautiful views of the surrounding nature and the sounds of the cantatas, Zakynthos traditional music, will feel your heart with joy.
And if you want to be enticed by the sunset, head to Keri village and admire the sun as it sets into the sea, radiating the most captivating shades of red, yellow and gold.
And then there is the most iconic shipwreck, Zakyntho’s most photographed spot, Navagio beach. An imposing backdrop with dramatic towering cliffs and a white sandy beach with turquoise waters and the mysterious shipwreck at its center. Arrive by boat and swim in the magical waters or view from above for breathtaking shots. Visit also the extraordinary Blue Caves for a sense of an adventure and admire their impressive colours and striking rocky formations. And then head to some of the island’s most admired beaches, from Laganas to Gerakas, Vasislikos and Marathonisi, they all are among the best in Greece.
Feel your heart with joy if you are lucky enough to see the endangered caretta caretta sea turtles as they lay their eggs in the island’s white sandy beaches of Gerakas, Dafni, Kalamaki, Marathonisi and Sakania. Marvel the miracle of life with respect and do not disturb these beautiful creatures or their eggs.
