Zakynthos (Zante)


Zakynthos, the third largest of the Ionian Islands, has long been a source of inspiration for its many visitors. The Venetians dubbed it "Fiore di Levante", the flower of the orient, because of its rich and colourful landscape. Today's visitors are left equally awe-struck by the lands natural beauty and the clear waters that surround it.

Food & Wine in Zakynthos
Zakynthos has always taken great pride in its cooking and has many delicious local dishes. Stifado is a very popular rabbit stew while rose and fruit liqueurs and pastalis biscuits make for some tasty deserts. Look out for the strong and pungent 'graviera' cheese which with crusty bread, salad and olives makes a great picnic. 'Mandolato', a sticky white nougat made with almonds, is another local speciality. You might stop at a roadside stall and buy 'fitouri' or 'pasteli', delicious sweet fried snacks. The vineyards on Zakynthos produce some excellent wines. The white Popolaro is considered one of the best in the Ionians and the young and refreshing dry white, Verdea, is a fine accompaniment to seafood.

Days & Nights in Zakynthos
Argassi, Lagana and Tsivili offer the most if you are looking for lively nightclubs and bars. They also have plenty of restaurants and Tavernas with sea views for those who prefer a quieter evening. For an even more romantic setting try and find a secluded table over looking the Aegean in Alikes or Vassilikos.

Sights & Sounds in Zakynthos
Sightseeing: From the plains and mountains of the interior to the rugged coast there is plenty to do in Zakynthos. One of the best ways to see the island is by boat, some of the best beaches such as Smugglers' Cove and the romantic island of and Marathonis in Laganas Bay can only be accessed by sea.

Sun & Sand in Zakynthos
Long crescents of soft sand and sea on the eastern peninsula are perfect for sunbathing, swimming and a variety of watersports. On this coast you will find the popular beaches of Vassilikos, Tsilivi and Alikes. Further south Porto Roma, fringed by pine trees, and Gerakas with its golden sands and rocky peninsula offer a quieter beach experience. On the west coast, the island plunges steeply into the sea with numerous caves piercing the cliffs. Here you will discover the much-photographed bay known as Smugglers' Cove, only reachable by sea.
