Situated on the south east of Zante, Vassilikos may be one of the most popular spots on the island but it still retains a very Greek and traditional charm that makes it the holidaymaker hotspot that it is. It's not popular because of its nightlife opportunities - more the low-key vibes and rustic scenery.
However, it's certainly not without its fair share of facilities to keep holidaymakers well and truly satisfied. Vassilikos provides a perfect combination of charm and comfort, and the great value holidays here will certainly not be a disappointment. Enjoy the rural nature of the resort and explore what else the peninsula has to offer from this idyllic base. As far as Greece and its islands are concerned, this corner of Zante is one of the prime spots to enjoy the best of everything.
With watersports on two of its beaches, and a sprinkling of bars, shops and tavernas to keep you happy when on dry land, Vassilikos holidays offer gorgeous views of rolling hills that slip gently into the sapphire waters of the Ionian Sea.
Perfect if you want to enjoy a spot of shopping - particularly for souvenirs and trinkets that are absent in the lanes of Vassilikos - a visit to Zante Town is easily enjoyed, especially because it's only 11km up the road. The town is also home to a wide selection of attractions, bars and restaurants to enjoy if shopping till you drop doesn't sound too appealing.
The Smuggler's Cove
One of the highlights of the island, this sight is definitely not one to miss. This picture perfect cove is home to a famous shipwreck, while the waters are turquoise and crystal clear - ideal for swimming and snorkelling to see what lurks beneath the ripples!
The Blue Caves
These dazzling caves are another popular attraction on the island of Zante and world famous because of their outstanding beauty. The waters that flow through the caves are a vibrant cyan blue, adding to the beauty of these incredible geological formations. You can reach them by regular boat trips too.
Walking in the Lanes
Walking and hiking are popular here, with the criss-crossing lanes being a perfect playground for avid walkers who love nothing more than to explore. Stop at one of the local village tavernas for an ice cold drink or head for the headland to enjoy the coastal walks at your own pace.
Dive on the Marathonisi Isle
Diving lessons can be arranged for those who are new to the pastime, while those who know what they're doing can go it alone. This isle can be found just off the coast of Zante and, as part of the natural marine park, it exudes natural beauty including white sandy beaches and incredibly translucent waters.
Sunbathe the Day Away
If there's one thing that Vassilikos is good at, it's beaches. It'd be a shame not to sample the sands as much as you can and if you're looking for lazy days, there's no better place for you to be than stretched out with a stunning view to the blue yonder beyond!
One of the most popular tourist destinations on the island, Vassilikos has something for everyone. Perfectly placed for exploration and adventure, while also ideal if you just want to while the days away watching the world go by.
More vibrant than its neighbour, Laganas is one of the party towns on the island and definitely a place to base yourself if you're hoping for after-dark action and dancefloors aplenty. It's becoming increasingly popular with the under-30s crowd, so it's definitely the place to go if you're after some fun after dusk!
