Flower of the East
Located just off the west coast of mainland Greece, Zakynthos enjoys a reputation as both a party destination and a family-friendly getaway. Packed with foreign tourists along its eastern and southeastern coastline, the island also features numerous tranquil pockets in its central region of forested mountains and rolling hills. Avoid the overcrowded east by discovering the island's less-explored northern sections, which contain a series of deep caves that feature sun reflecting on seawater and white stones, creating a striking shade of azure particular to this part of the world. The northern capes of the island also offer the calmest waters, which lap a string of developed beaches with plenty of modern facilities. When using our Greece trip itinerary tool to make an itinerary online, Zakynthos holidays come together around your tastes, interests, and requirements, with us taking care of the logistics.

Where to stay in Zakynthos

Zakynthos offers lodgings for every budget and taste, from quaint family-run inns to luxurious seaside hotels. If you wish to avoid the package tourism of Zakynthos Town or Laganas, book your stay at one of the island's coastal villas, offering access to private swimming areas and fully equipped cooking facilities. For a less expensive alternative close to secluded beaches and traditional taverns, consider a small village like Keri or Vassilikos, which offer comfortable rooms at a fraction of the price charged by the big-name hotels.
