Zakynthos (Zante): The Must-Do Activities

Zakynthos (Zante): What to do when you get there?

Enjoy the great weather on the sunniest island in the Mediterranean, and let yourself be swept away by the rhythms of Zakynthian life, joining the hospitable people of this island.

Zakynthos manages every time to charm visitors with its many faces: from the one side mountain villages, pine covered mountains and fertile valleys and on the other cosmopolitan beaches, dramatic cliffs and caves.

You can expect to find some of the most famous beaches of the Greek islands, such as Shipwreck, Laganas, Volimes, the Blue Caves.The Ionion Sea around Zakynthos is one of the best scuba diving locations in Europe with a wide variety of stunning topography, breathtaking walls, drop offs, overhangs, caves, caverns and wrecks! The rich and varied marine life in Zakynthos includes octopus, barracuda, moray eels, large grouper, tuna, giant loggerhead turtles (Caretta Caretta), crayfish, langusta, white bream, bluefish, dolphins, greater amberjacks, parrotfish and many other reef fish.

The rich sea biodiversity of the island and the very mysterious and powerful dive sites, are making the island as one of the pearls of diving destinations. Have a swim at the wide sandy beaches in the company of sea turtles, or go for snorkelling or scuba diving between rocks and in underwater caves.

In the winter months Zante has a high level of rainfall, helping to maintain a very green landscape in Zakynthos. The greenery of Zante helped to earn the island the title of the 'Flower of the East' from the ruling Venetians.

Zakynthos is blessed with some of the highest sunshine hours in all of the Mediterranean - making this a great place for a beach holiday!
