Dubbed 'Zante' by the Venetians, a luxury holiday to the beautiful Greek island of Zakynthos promises white-sand beaches, brilliant turquoise waters and a sunny Mediterranean climate. It's also dotted with several award-winning resorts, boutique hotels and luxury villas with private pools. While its sandy beaches and array of watersports make it perfect for a summer family holiday, couples will also love the stunning scenery and marina-side bars on offer.

Steal away to 'Smuggler's Cove' (Navagio Bay) to discover the island's famous shipwreck or take to the golden sands of Laganas Beach to swim with loggerhead turtles. The island is also known for its resident caretta caretta turtles, an endangered species you can say hello to when snorkelling!
Journey up to the mountain village of Agios Nikolaos (Kiliomenos) — just a 30-minute drive from Zakynthos Town — to wander its narrow streets, dine at it's waterfront restaurants and marvel at its distinctive stone-carved church. Discover Zante's enchanting Blue Caves by boat and sample the island's local produce from one of its many olive groves.
With such a variety of things do in its quaint coastal villages and on its sandy beaches, Zakynthos offers the perfect setting for many types of getaways. From active holidays to romantic retreats and luxury family holidays — this Greek island is the jewel of the Ionian Sea.
