If you fancy Greece and your idea of an ideal luxury holiday involves a beautiful beach and a relaxing getaway, you should seriously consider Zante, which is also known as Zakynthos. Zante is the most southerly of the Ionian Islands and the third largest behind Corfu
The island boasts mountainous landscapes in the north and gentle hills and rolling countryside in the south. You will find lush countryside rich with olive groves, lemon trees and bougainvillea plus a stunning coastline and plenty of beaches just perfect for lazing your days away.
Zante is an important nesting spot for loggerhead turtles (also known as Caretta Caretta turtles). One of the best places for spotting these amazing creatures is Marathonissi Island, particularly at sundown between July and August.
Kalamaki is a peaceful resort close to Zante Town and within easy reach of the airport, ideal for travellers that like short transfer times! The beach is excellent and there's a wide selection of bars and tavernas plus there's a large waterpark nearby. Those seeking a more lively resort should choose Argassi which has plenty of clubs and bars, excellent watersports, fantastic gastronomy and a good choice of historic sights within easy reach.
For a stunning photograph opportunity, take a trip to Navagio Beach (Shipwreck Beach). Only accessible by boat, you'll find this is a very popular spot but it's well worth taking the time to visit. Other beaches of note include Alykes Beach which is incredibly clean and has shallow waters ideal for families and Porto Limnionas Beach with its crystal clear waters and a wonderful local restaurant that enjoys amazing views.
