The lively resort of Argassi, Greece is on the stunning island of Zante, one of the most popular holiday destinations in the Greek Islands. With a great range of bars and clubs, excellent watersports facilities, and good transport links to Zante Town, it's well suited to couples and families who want all the convenience but none of the crowds. With its natural beauty, historic sights and excellent cuisine, holidays to Argassi are great for relaxation.
The sand and shingle beach here is nearly a kilometre long, and if you wake up early enough you'll see a wonderful sunrise over the Ionian Sea. With plenty of sunloungers, you can easily take some time out and soak up the sun.
Another big advantage of Argassi holidays, other than the sun, sand, and sea, is that you'll be just a 10-minute ride from Zante Town via the tourist train. Here you can find a much wider range of restaurants and bars, and historic sights like the Venetian church of San Dionisio.
Summers in Zante are very long, hot, and dry, with daytime temperatures peaking at around 31°C in July and August, and hovering around 27°C to 28°C in June and September. In July and August, night-time temperatures often remain above 20°C, meaning you can look forward to spending time outdoors after dark without needing a jumper. Even in winter, daytime temperatures regularly hit the teens, and average daily sunshine hours in January are closer to what you'd expect in southern UK in August.
