Explore Zakynthos

The Blue Caves of Zakynthos, located on the northern coast, are must see sight, here on the island. The caves are easily accessible by boat, and many excursions from nearby resorts operate daily. Their walls are lit up blue from the colour of the waters, and almost all of the caves are entirely filled with water.

The city of Zakynthos is the capital and largest on the island, offering its visitors an array of attractions and interesting sites to see. Some of these include; the Museum of Solomos; a beautiful, well preserved Venetian Castle built on the ruins of an ancient acropolis; the Byzantine Museum of Zakynthos, which displays collections of icons from the Byzantine period to the 19th century, and Kalvos and Eminent Zakynthians Museum which contains relics of poets and other famous Zakynthians.

The island offers its visitors stunning beaches but two have an interesting bonus. If you're lucky you will be able to see the Caretta-Caretta Sea turtles that come into Lagan and Geraka. They come ashore during the early hours of the morning to mate and to lay their eggs.

At night Zakynthos city and Tsilivi offer good options for dining, and accommodation is also plentiful.

If you choose to tour the island by car, the mountain villages of Maherado, Keri, Lithakia and Koilomeno are famous for their hospitality. Here you can sample local cheeses and wines while you take in the fresh mountain air.
