Explore Zakynthos

The flower of the Levant

The third largest in size of the Ionian Islands, Zakynthos lies off the west coast of the Peloponnese. Zakynthos has flights from most European cities and from Athens in the summer months. It is easily reached by a busy ferry service from Kyllini and this port is linked with a coach service from Athens Bus Station.
The Venetians called the Island Zante and on account of its profuse natural vegetation and soils that supported rich agriculture christened it ‘flower of the Levant’ and the Island rivals other Greek Islands in terms of natural beauty and the quality of its beaches.
