Zante

Zante, or Zayynthos, houses a wealth of delights from its prime location in the Ionian Sea. With rugged coves, golden beaches and mammoth cliffs from which to enjoy its famously dazzling sunsets, Zante has some of the most impressive coastal scenery in Greece. It’s also famous for its loggerhead turtles, which can be observed nesting in the summer months on Laganas Beach. Night owls will enjoy the bustling pubs and bars of Tsilivi whilst those seeking a more relaxed pace of life can relax on the beaches of Kalamaki and Alykanas.

The island’s lush interior is also a joy to behold, with plentiful citrus groves and beautiful flora justifying Zante’s Venetian nickname, ‘The Flower of the Orient’.
