Ideal for a villa holiday, Zakynthos is a popular Greek island in the Ionian Sea. Breathtaking landscapes, exotic beaches with white sand and turquoise waters combined with a vibrant nightlife make it a great Greek villa destination. The harbour city of Zakynthos is the capital and major hub, centred around the waterfront, Solomos Square. Accessed only by boat, the worldwide famous Navagio beach is the site of a famed 1980 shipwreck resting in a sandy cove framed by cliffs.

Things to do in Zakynthos

Zakynthos is one of the most exotic Greek islands with a wonderful natural landscape and stunning beaches. Exploring Zakynthos, you’ll discover picturesque hilltop villages, traditional monasteries, and dreamy natural landscapes. What’s more, some of the beaches are home to the endangered sea turtle species Caretta Caretta, which every year hide their eggs in the fine white sand of Zakynthos, which you may be lucky enough to spot.

After exploring the emerald bays of the island, take a break from the beach life to visit Zakynthos Town, the capital of Zakynthos. St. Mark Square, the Venetian Castle, Solomos Square and the Post Byzantine Museum of Zakynthos are some of the best places to visit. You can do all of this with little fuss whilst on a villa holiday in Zakynthos.
