Zakynthos

ZakynthosGreece

Of sea turtles and smugglers

Appreciated as the sunniest island in the Mediterranean, Zakynthos has far more to offer than just sun, fun and relaxation. This Greek isle offers a slice of paradise to cave divers, families and animal lovers as well.

But, clearly, the spots most favoured by Zakynthos visitors and locals are the island’s beautiful beaches, many of which are gently-shelving, and therefore particularly suitable for family holidays.

    Kalamaki, for instance, has fine, white sand beaches, dunes and cliffs on offer. Surfers are more likely to be drawn to the island’s northeast coast. Many of the beaches on the west coast can only be accessed by boat which means that even during the high season they are not overcrowded. View in maps
