Experience a taste of paradise with Zante holidays this summer
Enjoy paradise on earth in Zante
It's natural to become lost in paradise on Zante. The third-largest Greek Island has breathtaking vistas and an endless, impressive coastline. You're never too far from a piece of history to appreciate or a beach to soak up the sun! Zante Town itself merges history with modern life, as the 17th-century cathedral serves as a backdrop to several exclusive bars and restaurants. Experience a taste of tradition in the quiet village of Kampi, or the local town of Maries, with its cobbled streets and fresh Greek cuisine. Follow the welcome blue waves to hidden smugglers' coves, and add a unique sense of adventure. Towards the tip of Zante and nestled beneath rugged rocks, there's also the infamous Blue Grotto: cast in an ethereal blue light, there's lots of marine life to explore as well as a shipwreck for those who enjoy a spot of snorkelling.
Explore Zante on sea or land
You can also go deeper with regular scuba diving lessons and the chance to take in the vibrant marine life surrounding the island. For those who'd prefer to stay on land, there's a chance to appreciate Zante's seafaring attitude in the famous port town of Kefalonia, which previously experienced a taste of Hollywood when it was featured as the backdrop in Captain Corelli's Mandolin. Kefalonia also boasts one of the best wineries in all of Greece. You can even have a go at making it yourself!
Get back to nature
If nature's more your thing, there's regular walking trips deep into the heart of Zante's landscape, as well as the chance to spot loggerhead turtles at Lagana Beach! If you can't manage to come in the later summer months, though, Zante has its own turtle centre where you can learn all about the wonderful ocean creatures. With an average of thirteen hours a day of sunshine in the height of July, guaranteed good weather is only one of Zante's many benefits. A perfect way to wind down after a day of exploration is to watch the bursting golden sunset from Kampi itself. For those who seek a livelier end to an evening, there's a super party atmosphere with boat and paint parties to let your hair down.
Zante holidays are definitely ones to remember. Zante itself prides itself on its open and friendly nature, with tons of atmosphere and activities to suit everyone from all walks of life.
