Golden from the sun, washed over by the sea in all shades of blue. Green from the pine forests and olive groves, fragrant with the flowers of oranges. Stunning unique scenery, full of pleasant surprises. Its advantages have been valued by Caretta turtles, which have chosen the beaches of the island as a nesting site and have become its symbol. The sensual atmosphere of Zakynthos and kindness of the island's residents have created ideal conditions for spending holidays there.

Breathtaking views – standing over a cliff, we have a precipice under our feet. Wherever you look there is the emerald green sea and blue sky, everything intersected by the sharp contour of gray-white rocks. Between them a little patch of a distant beach whitens, and on it a magical shipwreck. This is the flagship of this wonderful island, which is a must see. It's worth coming here for the streets filled with quiet and heat, where elderly people sit in front of houses, and pigeons occupy the old bell towers, for the late afternoon soaked with light, which blurs the boundaries between the sky and sea, for the simplest dishes, like a piece of sheep's cheese with bread and olive oil. And for the retsina - a wine seasoned with resin, which tastes so great only here. The noisiest, literally and metaphorically, tourist centre of the island is Laganas, by a bay of the same name, with a 5-km sandy beach, which is part of the National Marine Park. It is here that every year turtles lay their eggs and that is why certain sections of the beach are closed to tourists, and certain sport activities are prohibited. The best clubs, bars and discos on the island are in Laganas, popular among amateurs of the nightlife. There are plenty of taverns and restaurants here: from the traditional Greek to Italian, Chinese, Indian and typical fast-food places. Many shops do not differ in assortment from the best in the capital. Tsilive is enjoying increasing popularity - a small, but lively tourist resort with a beautiful sandy beach distinguished by the Blue Flag certificate with a rich offer of watersports. The cafes, bars and pubs lure you, it is worth visiting traditional Greek taverns. There are many attractions here for tourists of all ages: Fantasy Mini-Golf courts, Bowl'm Over amusement centre with pool tables and bowling alleys, Luna Fun Park and the Marine Museum. Argassi is located only 4 kilometres from the island's capital. The destination offers sandy beaches and clean sea waters. The best taverns of the island and Greek night clubs have their headquarters here. The destination is an ideal starting point for visiting the beautiful beaches of Vasilikos peninsula - Banana, Gerakas and Porto Roma. Near Argassi begins the trekking route to Skopos, the highest elevation of the Vasilikos Peninsula, where in antiquity was the Temple of Artemis.

Kalamaki is a small tourist resort best known for its wonderful, wide beaches, which are the breeding places of the Caretta Caretta turtles. Quieter than its neighbour Laganas, it is the perfect place for those seeking tranquility or families with children.
