Although Zante is just a small island, sometimes you really need to escape from everything and relax in a more secluded corner of the world. Marathonissi Island fits the bill perfectly. This tiny island has just two perfectly powdery beaches, both lined with twinkling turquoise waters and adorned with loggerhead turtles. It’s a true taste of the exotic and just moments away from the popular Zante base of Laganas.
Located on a beautiful harbour, Zante Town is a relatively recent development, with many of the builds erected in the mid 1900’s. Despite this, the whitewash cubic builds, traditional stalls, and tasty tavernas make Zante Town a delightfully distinctive day away from your resort.
With a good selection of hot spots nearby, the option of exploring a number of Greek Islands on holidays in Zante is always available.

Yerakas is an untouched, peaceful area of Zante, with little to do but tuck into some authentic Greek cuisine at the local tavernas, or sip a cool drink and relax in a bar.

Picture the perfect horseshoe cove from any fantasy film, and then open your eyes… you’ve imagined Smugglers Cove on the supremely unspoilt shoreline of Navagio Beach. Those travelling with children can book a swashbuckling excursion to this attraction, complete with pirate camp, certificates and some hearty grub. Will you be mean enough to make them walk the plank?
While Zante likes to play things cool during the day by providing plenty of places for visitors to find their Zen and rejuvenate, when it comes to partying hard, Laganas is on hand to balance the scale. The clubbing capital of the island, expect nothing less than foam, UV, Geek Chic and laser parties from the Laganas strip.
Zante package holidays are ideal for families, and frankly, no family break is complete without a waterpark.

Travelling with tiny tots or just looking for a romantic rendezvous? Either way, the charming town of Alykanas is the perfect selection for Zante holiday resorts. Safe, sugary soft shorelines, whitewash buildings, and traditional tavernas ensure that everything you need for a chilled out trip is right on your doorstep.
