What to do and see in Zakynthos

Stroll the picturesque waterfront of Zakynthos town from Solomos Square to the Church of Agios Dionysios, patron saint of the island.

See artefacts dating back to the 12th century at the Byzantine Museum, enjoy panoramic views from the hilltop ruins of the Venetian fortress and have fun at the Zakynthos Water Village, with its numerous slides and pools.

Take a water taxi to swim in the remarkable nature-sculpted Blue Caves of Volimes and visit the 14th century Church of Agia Mavra at the traditional Greek village of Macherado. With its impressive Venetian belfry and collection of icons and frescoes, the church is considered one of the most important on the island.

While Zante offers a choice of excellent beaches and some of the clearest waters in Greece, don't miss Navagio Beach – one of the most famous beaches on Zakynthos.

A pocket of gorgeous white sand sits surrounded on three sides by towering vertical cliffs of white rock. The remains of a shipwreck sit semi-submerged in sand in the middle of the beach.

Located on the west coast, this picture-perfect beach is only accessible by a 30-minute water taxi ride from Porto Vromi.
