Zante or Zakynthos, a popular island in Greece, has perhaps one of the most photographed beach coves in the entire country, and if you’ve ever seen photographs of the Greek islands, then you may already have seen one of the famous beaches of Zante, Navagio Beach. This cove has the bluest water, and it is surrounded on three main sides by tall cliffs seemingly stretching all the way to the sky. If you’re planning a visit to the island of Zante, Navagio Beach is surely one of the sights to see. But Zante has other interesting and relaxing sights for visitors of all ages. Here are the top three sites in Zante you shouldn’t miss.
- Alykes Beach
Alykes Beach is one of the most popular sites in Zante, and it’s a favourite beach of many due to its relaxed vibe and beautiful stretch of coastline, where visitors can simply while away the hours in some of the most relaxing beach bars ever. The great thing about Alykes Beach is that it has a number of bars, and some of the bars will let you sit on the chairs on the beach for free as long as you order drinks or food. The bars offer some really affordable cocktails and beers, and you can spend the day on the beach just relaxing, sipping your favourite beverage, and occasionally taking a nice, cool dip. The atmosphere and food will leave you feeling happy and satisfied.
- Zante Town
Once you’re in Zante, you wouldn’t really miss Zante Town – but rather than head off right away to the nearest beach, spend a few hours in the town and check out the many different restaurants as well as the promenade facing the sea, which is right in front of the harbour full of picturesque fishing boats, sailboats, and ferries.
- Porto Limnionas
Porto Limnionas is just one of the many beach coves on Zante, but it still stands out for many reasons. The bay is surrounded by cliffs as well, but these cliffs have multiple colours, and Porto Limnionas gives a new meaning to ‘crystal clear water’. A visit to Porto Limnionas isn’t complete without a few drinks from the Limnionas Tavern, and you can easily rent a sunbed which hangs over the edge to give you a fantastic view of the sea.
There’s one other brilliant thing you can do on your visit to Zante to make it more memorable: you can go on a boat party package, which is available for anyone wanting to have a great time on the island. These popular Zante boat events are guaranteed to give your holiday that extra ‘oomph!’. There are fantastic tours around the island, complete with DJs and live music, cocktails, and champagne, and other party guests all raring to have the time of their lives.
