If beautiful beaches, greek cuisine and wild nights out sound right up your street, then Zante is the place for you. Located on the island of Zakynthos, a simply stunning destination sporting some of the best beaches in the mediterranean. Popular sunbathing spots such as Agios Nikolaos, Alykanas and Tsilivi offer a place to relax and catch a tan, but if you want to get your blood pumping water sports are also available. However the prize for best beach in Zante has to go to Navagio. It’s typically accessed by boat, but it is well worth the journey as it is home to the famous 1980 shipwreck resting in a sandy cove and framed by striking white cliffs. Certainly the ideal spot to snap some summer pics! Don’t forget to check out the turtle sanctuary, it’s our only resort where these adorable sea creatures are on display. It’s a great way to spend the day getting up close and personal with these majestic creatures we usually only get to see on TV.
Zante is the perfect place for your first season abroad as it isn’t too big like some of the other larger resorts, meaning it’s easy to make yourself at home. Getting to know your bearings shouldn’t take long as most of the action is focused along the Laganas strip. The strip is only a few hundred meters long, but it’s jam packed with some of the best nightlife that Greece has to offer. Home to iconic clubs such as Cherry Bay Beach Club, Waikiki and of course the beloved Zeroes Nightclub. Clubs are nearby meaning that bouncing from one place to another is practiced and encouraged. It’s also great because it means that the streets are teeming with happy holiday makers, helping to give Zante a real festival feel. Workers are also treated to discounted drinks prices, costing as little as 2 euros per beverage. Which means your money goes further and your nights out are even crazier. Just in case you are feeling a little fragile the next day, you can clear up that hangover with some local greek cuisine. From the classic meat stuffed Gyro to more traditional dishes like Dolmades; comprised of delicious stuffed grape leaves. Zante truly has a great mix of everything, incredible scenery, daytime excursions and of course a nightlife you will never forget. Pack that suncream! Greece summers often creep above 30 degrees celsius and rarely fall below 20, with little cloud cover to stop those shoulders burning. Here’s a look at Zante’s weather:
Zante is known for its tight worker community due to the cozy size of the resort, with many workers reporting that there is a great family vibe.
