Island of Zákynthos (Zante) Holidays

Welcome to Zákynthos (Zante)


The third largest island of the Ionian sea, is internationally known as “Zante”. Zákynthos is said to have been the island’s first inhabitant and the ancient acropolis is attributed to him. He was the son of Dardanos who ruled the ancient kingdom of Frigia. A Venetian fort was built at later times on the site.

The city of Zakynthos is the capital of the island and at the same time the island's port. Its landscape diversity has resulted in different types of beaches in Zante. There are sandy beaches in secluded coves where the tranquil waters are deep blue on the island’s south eastern part; yet, if rugged cliffs and an interesting underwater world are to your liking, try the western part of the island.

Zakynthos is home to the worldwide famous Navagio (Shipwreck) beach and glorified by innumerable travel guides, Zakynthos island is one of the most popular Greek islands! This island offers breath taking landscapes, exotic beaches with sugar-fine sand and turquoise waters. 

The Venetians, who ruled Zákynthos from 1484 to 1797, called the island “ Fioro di Levante ” (flower of the East) as there are over 7,000 species of flowers on Zákynthos.  The Venetian architectural influence has left its stamp on Zante despite the damage sustained due to the seismic activity in the area. Zakynthos Town has many hidden gems to explore! Saint Mark Square, the Venetian Castle, Solomos Square and the Post-Byzantine Museum of Zante are some of the best places to visit in Zakynthos Town. 

On Zante, great care is taken to protect two endangered animal species, namely the carette carette turtle and the monachus  monachus seal.

"Sadly like many people our holiday for five people was cancelled due to Covid-19. The date of our holiday meant it was on, then off, then on and finally off again. Throughout all this I can't fault how Akin and his team dealt with all the hassle at a most difficult time for his company.  The refund was dealt with swiftly and our party can only thank everyone for all their help."  Mr Brian Chappell - 2 Jun 2020

"Our holiday in Turkey exceeded our expectations. Cappadocia was interesting and beautiful. It was exciting staying in cave. Istanbul was amazing. We had very little previous experience of Turkey and Turkish people, so we enjoyed the beauty of the country and friendly hospitality of the people. We felt safe and not at all threatened in the city. The quality of food and service in restaurants was good. Efes beer is very tasty."  Mr David Hyam
