Zakynthos: The Greek Island of Beauty
Whether you are looking for a glitzy, full-party holiday of a lifetime or a relaxing stay in a picturesque and secluded holiday cottage, the Greek Island of Zakynthos is yours for the taking. More commonly known as Zante in the United Kingdom, Zakynthos is increasingly popular with British tourists due to its proximity, which makes for a short flight and attractive package rates from England. In fact, Zante is quite easy to get to with frequent and cheap flights from most major UK airports.
The main town of Laganas, nestled on the south of the Island, is everything the young British party seeker is looking for. With a wide variety of beachside restaurants, bars and clubs aplenty for hosting a great party, and the opportunity to bask on glorious sun-drenched beaches, you simply cannot go wrong with Zakynthos.
The island also offers you a chance to explore and exclaim over the famous loggerhead turtles. Towards the north of the island, you can find idyllic holiday villages, quiet secluded coves and breath-taking scenery for your quiet getaway.
Getting around the island cannot get any easier: with car and bike rentals, you get easy access to the more secluded villages in the north of the island, as well as a chance to spend some of your holiday funds in the island’s principal town, Zakynthos Town.
It is worth remembering that on a cheap package deal, the accommodation in Zakynthos can be quite basic, but this should not spoil your holiday as long as you get to make the most of the island’s favourable weather and facilities.
