Sailing Holidays in Zakynthos

Zante is an island of poetry, song and love; the native land of Dionysios Solomos, the national poet who wrote the Greek National Anthem but also that of St. Dennis, the Patron Saint. Zante is the ideal of any traveler with an exploring mind.

It is almost triangular in shape, with two green mountainous promontories extending into the sea to form the huge bay of Laganas. There are more pine-covered mountains and hills in the north, but the center is gentle and lush, richly planted with currant vines, olive trees, almonds and seasonal vegetables.

There are dozens of beaches to choose from, sandy and sheltered with invitingly clear waters. Flowers of every kind are everywhere, filling the air with the scent that so enraptured visitors of old. With a sunny climate most of the year and good roads to facilitate exploring, Zakynthos lends itself to holidays throughout the year.

Some of the best known summer resorts are Kalamaki, Argassi, Alykes, Tsilivi, Vassilikos, Keri and Volimes and Laganas. With its long beach and wide range of facilities, Laganas is the most famous attracting thousands of tourists.
