ABOUT THE ISLAND

There is an ancient Greek legend telling that after creation of the World, God had a pile of precious stones left which he threw to the sea and that is how Greek Islands appeared. The most precious and bright emerald turned into Island Zakynthos. Once you are here, you will have no doubts it is true.
World famous, one of the top ten beaches in the world – Shipwreck beach or Navagio cove as locals call it; Blue caves with its clearest ion water; golden sand beach Marathonissi where giant sea turtles Caretta-Caretta lay eggs, picturesque villages, kilometers of olive gardens and vineyards, long sand beaches and green mountains – it’s all Zakynthos.

Zakynthos (Zante) is the third largest and the southernmost island in the Ionian Sea. It covers an area of 405 sq.km on Greece map. Population of the island is a bit more than 35 000 people. Thanks to close location of continental Greece, tourists can visit the motherland of Olympic Games – colorful village Olympia, which is located on Peloponnesus peninsula; they also can go to biggest Greek cities – Athens, Thessaloniki and Patras.
