description

Zakynthos (Zante) is a verdant island endowed with fertile valleys and a temperate climate. Its landscape diversity has resulted in different types of beaches: there are sandy beaches in secluded coves where the tranquil waters are deep blue on the island's southeastern part; yet, if rugged cliffs and an interesting underwater world are to your liking, try the western part of the island.

Great care is taken to protect two endangered animal species, namely the caretta caretta sea turtle and the monachus monachus seal.

Wander around the picturesque port, the Venetian fortress, the cathedral, go sailing or windsurfing, discover the deep blue sea while diving, dance and sing at the Agios Dionysios festival.
