The island of Zante has long been regarded as one of Greece’s most beautiful locations, and its attractions are a testament to this reputation. A longstanding belief is that the ancient Greeks believed the island was once home to an immortal nymph – but this theory remains unconfirmed. In any case, visitors today can explore a range of natural wonders and landmarks around the island.

The crystal clear waters offer unparalleled opportunities for swimming, snorkeling and diving; there are also numerous beaches with golden sand where visitors can enjoy sunbathing or simply take in the stunning views. There are several other points of interest too; two popular highlights include Navagio Beach (also known as Shipwreck Beach), which features dramatic cliffs overlooking pristine blue-green water, and Keri Caves, renowned for their spectacular stalactite formations.

Tsilivi beach is also worth visiting due to its buzzing atmosphere and lively restaurants and bars along the seafront. Other activities on offer include horse riding, mountain biking, windsurfing and paddle boarding – making it easy to find something suitable no matter your interests or skill level. With plenty of places to shop and dine out, Tsilivi has become increasingly popular over recent years.

Finally, those seeking spiritual enlightenment should head up Mount Skopos – Zante’s highest peak at 906 metres above sea level – where they will be rewarded with breathtaking panoramic views across Zakynthos Island from the summit monastery dedicated to Panagia Skiniotissa: an iconic symbol of Greek Orthodoxy.
