The Venetians, who owned it for 600 years, called it "the Flower of the East". Zakynthos is still one of the lushest and most-loved Greek islands, with green hillsides covered with flowers in spring and early summer, cliffs dropping to dazzling turquoise waters, and some of the country´s best beaches. Along with its natural beauties, it is claimed to be the sunniest among the island of the Ionian Sea, matching its natural beauties with a sizzling nightlife.

Do and see
The great majority of Zakynthos´visitors are particularly attracted by the vast selection of dazzling beaches that the island has to offer. The Flower of the East though, manages to keep the holidaymakers entertained with a lot more options, ranging from museums to architectural beauties or ancient ruins. Covered by lush Mediterranean vegetation, the area that stretches along the southern coast from the promontory of Marathia’s Cape to the beach of Gerakas, has been designated as a National Marine Park, housing many engendered species and several walking trails.
Church of Agios Dionysios
This small church, built in 1925, contains the silver-encrusted sarcophagus of St. Dionysios, the island’s patron saint. It survived the 1953 earthquake – proof, say devout islanders, of the Saint’s miraculous powers.
Post-byzantine Museum
The main attraction is the collection of fine Orthodox icons and wall-paintings collected from the churches and monasteries that were leveled by the devastating 1953 earthquake. A model of Zakynthos Town prior to the disaster shows what the town looked like before the unhappy event.
Solomos Museum
This modest museum celebrates the life and works of Dionysios Solomos, the Zakynthian author and poet who penned the Greek national anthem along with other notable islanders. The museum houses 18th or 19th century paintings and ancient instruments among other local artworks.
The Monastery of Panagia Skopiotissa
A long and scenic 4 kilometers long climb will lead you from Argassi Village to the remains of Panagia Skopiotissa, through a walking trail surrounded by unspoiled nature. The monastery, located on top of mount Skopos, was constructed in 1624 and still features beautiful murals.
Round The Island Cruises
Excursion boats leave daily (buy tickets the night before at the quayside or at your hotel) from all the island resorts and throughout the whole summer. The trips head to the Blue Grotto, a marine cave carved out of thousand years old white limestone cliffs, and to the so-called Smugglers Wreck, the rusty hulk of a Syrian cargo vessel that ran aground in the 1980’s on a spectacular white beach overlooked by towering cliffs, which, for its secluded location, is almost impossible to reach if not by boat.
Ancient Olympia
The spectacular ruins of ancient Olympia, birthplace of the Olympic Games, are located only an hour away from Killini, the small port on the Greek mainland opposite Zakynthos. The ferries to Killini are frequent and the journey takes approximately 90 minutes.
Seaplane Flights
There are no direct ferries from Zakynthos to other islands but you can choose to hop on one of the sea-planes operated by Hellenic-seaplanes. The trip might be on the expensive side, but the experience is certainly worth it.
Tsilivi Water Park
The ultimate water-park experience is in Tsilivi, among beautiful landscapes and lush vegetation. The Water Park comprises colourful slides and themed swimming pools, in a family friendly environment that both grown-ups and kids will love.
Zakynthos International Airport
Zakynthos Airport is midway between Kalamaki and Laganas. It is located about 4 km from the major holiday resorts such as Tsivili or Laganas. There is no public transport from the airport, though you will find plenty of taxi companies outside the terminal, or you can book one in advance. www.zantetaxi4u.com www.suntransfers.com/zakynthos-airport
Public Transport
A regular bus service connects all the main resorts to Zakynthos Town, with buses running throughout the entire day and tickets sold on board. Car rental is widely available and perhaps the best option if you are planning a tour of the island. Scooters and motorcycles may also be hired, but inexperienced riders should take great care.

The main post office of the island is located at Georgiou Tertseti, in Zakynthos Town, where you will be able to buy postcards, stamps and mail letters. The post offices are run by the Greek company Elta and feature a blue sign on the outside.
There are several pharmacies in Zakynthos Town and at least one in most resorts. If you require medicine after midnight, a doctor must contact the pharmacy first. For the location of the nearest pharmacy you should ask at your hotel.
