One of the most popular Greek islands, Zante is also known by the Greeks as Zakynthos. It’s perfect for family holidays, with sun, sea, and sand on offer all year round. It’s also a very family-friendly island, with plenty of things to see and do for the little ones. Fancy trying your hand at some water sports? Holidays to Zante are the perfect opportunity to try out something new, whether that’s getting upright on a set of water skis, or hanging on to a banana boat ride! Head away from the beach and inland and you’ll discover ancient olive groves and timeless villages, surrounded by beautiful countryside. The island’s pristine beaches and family-friendly attractions ensure it’s the perfect destination for holidaymakers of all ages. Bohali village is a must-see, and its hillside location affords it spectacular views over Zante Town.

Things to do

Life here revolves around the sea and a glass bottom boat trip from Skinari in the north is a must. Stop off at Navagio Beach or explore the famous Blue Caves; it’s best to go early in the morning to see the magical colour-changing waters at their best! Get some chill-out time in the afternoon, because the party really gets started after the sun goes down. Zante nightlife is famous for its banging beats, friendly atmosphere, and up-until-dawn fun that is bound to get you up on your feet and dancing!

Where to stay

Known by the Greeks as Zakynthos, there's a range of places to stay from quiet, hidden spots to more modern, bustling resorts. Whichever resort you choose to book your Zante holiday in, you’ll be amazed by Zante’s natural splendour.
