Vibrant Zante

With its rolling hills of green olive groves, hideaway ancient villages and majestic mountains, Zante is an island of contrasting beauties.

Dubbed the ‘Flower of the Orient’ because of its sprawling rural landscape, Zante holidays have much to offer for those who revel in the calmer ambience of life – with gorgeous trekking paths, idyllic fishing villages and historical wonders. Explore the fascinating Greek culture found in Aghios Sostis or simply kick back and relax in the stunning coastal village of Argassi.

Unwind in the laid-back coastal town of Tsilivi or dance until sunrise in vibrant Zante Town. If you like the buzz of the crowd, Laganas is the place for you, with plenty of bars and clubs on hand for evening entertainment. Wherever you choose to explore, you’ll find plenty of things to do on your holidays to Zante.

Sea and Sands

When deciding where to chill out and soak up the sun, Zante boasts a long list of idyllic locations to choose from. The island’s beaches remain a draw for many, with several to choose from. Agios Nikolaos is termed the best beach on the island and is located near Vassilikos. Indulge in the myriad of water sports on offer or linger over drinks at the on-site beach bar.

If you’d rather lean back somewhere a little more romantic when on your holidays in Zante, take a stroll down to Dafni. Access is via a steep hilly road in between Argassi and Vassilikos, resulting in a quietly pleasant beach, perfect for an all-day picnic and enjoying the peace.

Greek Paradise

Those who enjoy a slice of history can revel in culture on their holidays in Zante. Spectacular landmarks include Soloumou Square and the majestic Saint Nikoloas church, boasting an impressive legacy and striking Venetian architecture. Take the stroll down to the stunning blue caves of Cape Skinari, where you’ll find a Smuggler’s Cove at the site of a famous shipwreck.

Located on the Ionian Sea, discovering Zante’s scenic delights is best done so on the water. Jump aboard a boat and sail along its extensive coast, embark on a deep sea adventure to glimpse delightful coral reefs or get your adrenaline pumping with one of the fantastic water sports on offer. Whether you’re looking for an action-packed adventure or something more laid-back, it’s a great way to see Zante from a distinctive angle.

When the sun goes down is when this island really comes alive. A clubbers haven, it is easy to see why the island is popular with party-goers on their Zante holidays. Dressed top to toe in neon, head straight for Laganas and Tsilivi, which are filled with bars, clubs and pubs – offering everything from foam parties to neon nights.

It is an absolute must to spend some time sampling some of the island’s mouth-watering cuisine, when on holidays to Zante. This luscious island is filled with an impressive choice of restaurants, serving everything from Greek classics to Mediterranean fusions. Take a seat along one of the beaches to enjoy fantastic servings of seafood or head inland to tuck into authentic Greek cuisine in a charming taverna.

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.
