Holidays to Zante

With gorgeous beaches, a lively nightlife scene and fascinating history, Zante holidays have something for everyone. Filled with rolling hills of green olive groves, hideaway ancient villages and majestic mountains, Zante is fantastically diverse.

Spend the morning in town, shopping or trying local cuisine, then wander along to the beach and enjoy a sun-soaked afternoon on the sandy shore. You’ll then be in the prime location to sample the island’s vibrant nightlife – kick back in a quiet bar, have a sing-a-long in one of the karaoke bars or dance ’til dawn in one of the clubs.

Dubbed the ‘Flower of the Orient’ because of its sprawling rural landscape, the island also has many much to offer those who revel in the calmer ambiance of life, such as gorgeous trekking paths, hideaway fishing villages and historical wonders. Stay in the Dream Studios for a relaxing break with only a 15-minute transfer time from the airport. Whatever you’re after, you won’t have to look further than a wonderful holiday to Zante.

Diving in Zante

The calm waters of Agios Nicolaos are great for scuba diving, but for a diving excursion with a difference, Limnionas has some excellent caves perfect for the more adventurous divers seeking refreshing waters. For beginner, Laganas has a great diving school where you can find your flippers and get to grips with the sport.

Water Sports

Again, Agios Nicolaos is a popular spot with lots of facilities, but for more of a surf head to Alikes. Tsilivi and Laganas are also lively resorts where there are no shortages of water sports for all ages and abilities including water skiing, wind surfing and fun floats.

Go-Karting

Get the adrenaline racing by going go-karting with family or friends. On the road between Laganas and Kalamaki you can find an impressive F1 track which is host to family fun throughout the season; the venue offers child karts through to high speed vehicles for experienced drivers, so is suitable for all ages.

Cycling and Climbing

The varied landscape of the island is ideal for hiking and triking of all gradients. Take a relaxing ride or walk with a picnic around the countryside surrounding the beaches and villages; or for more challenging treks head off into the hills further inland.
