Zante, also  known as Zakynthos, is the most southerly of the Ionian Islands and one of the most popular Greek islands. Triangular in shape Zante island has three distinct geographical areas: the north west is mountainous with quaint traditional mountain villages, the central region is a fertile plain rich with olive groves and vineyards and the south east is characterised by beautiful beaches. There is something for everyone on this floating island of paradise with numerous sandy beaches, mountain villages preserving the traditional Greek way of life, beautiful natural scenery, watersports and good quality restaurants, bars and nightclubs to more than cater for all your entertainment needs. The locals welcome tourists with open arms and offer them the hospitality which Greece is famous for.

The harbor city of Zakynthos is the capital and major hub, centered around waterfront Solomos Square. Popular beaches like Agios Nikolaos, Alykanas and Tsilivi offer swimming and water sports. Accessed by boat, Navagio beach is the site of a famed 1980 shipwreck resting in a sandy cove framed by cliffs. Breathtaking landscapes, exotic beaches with sugar-fine sand and turquoise waters and crazy nightlife are the main reasons why this island is wildly popular and most preferred tourist destination.

MORE ABOUT ZANTE

Navagio Beach
Navagio Beach

This place is accessible only by boat, either on a big cruise ship, or a smaller one with private excursions directly to the smuggler's cove. There is a  large shipwreck on the beach, that was stranded on the white sands while fleeing from the authorities. In 1980  authorities chased a boat suspected of smuggling cigarettes and drinks, sailing off the coast of the Ionian Sea. 

The sea is absolutely stunning, and the white sand is like white chalk decomposed from large rocks around it. The attraction brings thousands and thousands of tourists each day during the summer season. The best photo opportunity is from the lookout from the top of the cliffs shown here, accessed only by car or a van. It's crowded in the high season but in the off-season, this place is a wonder of nature which gives chills to the bone.
