Holidays to Zante
The Greek island of Zante offers many rewards to travellers who like to get out and explore. A trip around the island will reveal spectacular white sand beaches flanked by soaring cliffs, transparent turquoise waters, lush vegetation, rolling hills, and small mountain villages where the locals are happy to share their traditions and culture with visitors. For holidaymakers looking for a scenic island getaway with much to see and do, Zante is an ideal choice.
What to see and do on a Holiday to Zante
The beaches on Zante are what makes this tiny island such a paradise. The most famous beach is Navagio, also known as ‘smuggler’s cove’. This isolated cove is surrounded by steep white cliffs and lapped by aquamarine waters, and as if that was not picturesque enough, on the sands there rests the skeleton of an old smuggling ship that ran aground in 1981. This is a great spot to take holiday pictures, as the
shipwreck on the flawless white sand beach looks like something straight off of a film set.
Visitors on a holiday to Zante will not want to pass up a boat trip to see the Blue Caves. At certain points around the coast, the sea has carved out hollows in the cliffs just above the surface of the waves. What makes these hollows unique is that the sun reflects the colour of the azure waters back onto the white walls of the cliffs, creating an dreamy blue haze. Many tours to the caves include a snorkelling session where you can catch sight of colourful fish, crabs, and sea turtles.
After a day spent sunbathing on postcard-perfect beaches, swimming in the crystal clear Ionian Sea, and exploring Zante’s unique sights, visitors can keep the momentum going at one of the many restaurants and bars in the resorts scattered around the island. Laganas is very popular with the nightlife set for its lively bars, clubs, and discos where you can dance the night away. For those looking for a quiet dinner and drink, Vasillikos has a very peaceful village atmosphere and a few welcoming authentic Greek tavernas.
