Zante Hotels - Zakynthos sights places to visit Zante island Greece


SHIPWRECKZakynthos hotels in Zante - Shipwreck

The most famous sight and one that is definitely not to be missed is the Shipwreck - a picturesque beach in the north of Zante.The shipwreck is without a doubt the most famous sight on Zante.

It also gets referred to as its Greek name Navagio, as well as Smugglers Cove.

It lies in the middle of a beautiful white pebble bay, surrounded by white cliffs and blue water that looks like bleach has been added - the colour is certainly impressive.

Shipwreck beach can be appreciated in two ways either by taking a boat trip or by viewing it from the viewing platform above; there is no direct access to the beach.

BLUE CAVES

Zante hotels in Zakynthos - Blue CavesThe Blue Caves are in the north of Zante and are one of the best known sights on the island.

The unusual caves were discovered in 1897, with the largest cave being called Blue Grotto.

In order to visit the caves you can hire a boat, or take a boat trip.

The nearest point to the caves to take a boat is the harbour of St Nikolaos, near Volimes, but trips depart from many other points on the island. The colours of the caves are spectacular and have to be seen to be believed and also an ideal for snorkelling.

VENETIAN CASTLE

Zakynthos hotels in Zante - Venetian CastleThe Venetian Castle, on Bohali hill on the outskirts of Zante town, was built in 1480 but only shortly afterwards part of it was destroyed by invading Turks.

From 1514 onwards it was repaired and at one point it became the capital of the island. The castle is in ruins today but it is still worth visiting as there are exceptional views of Zakynthos town below and across the Ionian Sea to the Peloponnese region of Greece.

Before the Castle was built, there once stood an acropolis on the same sight. The Castle is set amongst pine trees and is a lovely place to visit, for a better understanding of Zakynthian history, the splendid views and also the atmosphere one of tranquillity.

XIGIA

Zante hotels in Zakynthos - XigiaXigia Beach is in the north of Zakynthos and offers a unique chance to go to a health spa for free.

The water here has high sulphur content, reputed to be good for skin, removing cellulite, relieving arthritis and for other minor aliments.

What could be better on holiday than treating yourself to a pampering swim, so you can return home healthier and revitalised.

The beach is easily accessible by car and parking is available nearby. The beach is small and uncrowded, perfect for a tranquil time to bathe in the healing waters.

MARATHONISI

Zakynthos hotels in Zante - MarathonisiMarathonisi is a small uninhabited island, just off the coast of Laganas bay which can be reached by hiring a boat.

The island's shape resembles a turtle and it is also a nesting area for the Caretta Caretta turtles which is why it is affectionately known as Turtle Island.

There are two main beaches on Marathonisi, one is where the turtles lay their eggs in the soft golden sand and the other beach is pebbly with two coves nearby which are fun to discover and explore.

It is a lovely place to visit for a tranquil day of swimming and sunbathing, but be aware there are no facilities whatsoever on the island so it is advisable to take a food and beverages with you.
