If you are planning a trip to the paradisiacal Greek islands, it is more than likely that you are wondering what to see in Zakynthos. After all, this is one of the most visited and most beautiful spots along the Greek coast.
What to see in Zakynthos? Destinations not to be missed
First and foremost will be your arrival. The most convenient way to access the island is through the airport, which is located in Zakynthos. From there, you can comfortably move around the 40 kilometer-long island.
This place is full of small coves, secrets and points of tremendous beauty that you can discover. Therefore, our recommendation is that you rent a car at the airport upon arrival. It will make it much easier for you to move around freely in a unique place. As a result, you will be able to discover some of these sites of tremendous interest:
These are a series of natural caves that have formed on the coastline, between the mountain and the sea. A true wonder that we recommend visiting early inthe morning. At that time, the sun's rays strike, emitting an absolutely amazing brightness and color.
The most comfortable way to visit this spectacle is by ferry, which provides a guided tour.
The shipwreck beach
The main tourist spot on the island, with a ship stranded on it that, as you can imagine, has been shipwrecked there. It is a marvel that is hard to access, but well worth it. The crystal-clear water will make you want to never leave the sea.
The only drawback is that the area is very crowded with tourists. Ideally, you should visit during off-peak hours. Another option is to view the beach from the cliffs. This is one of the main attractions of Zakynthos.
In fact, our advice is to look for a good spot on the cliffs from which you can watch the sunset. Without a doubt, it will be one of the most beautiful you will ever see in your life.
Xigia Beach, another of the gems to see in Zakynthos
If summer, sea and sand are your thing, be sure to come to this tiny cove, absolutely beautiful and unique. It is located in an area where the current is almost minimal, and the water temperature is ideal.
In addition, if you have rented a car, it will not be difficult to get there.
Porto Limnionas Beach
A much less touristic area than the previous ones, with natural pools that will leave you speechless. It is a great place to spend the day: you can eat in the area, have a drink in its bars and enjoy a relaxing swim in the sun. Undoubtedly, a wonderful plan.
In addition, here you will find one of the most interesting activities that the Greek islands have to offer: snorkeling. Put on your goggles and equipment and go diving to see beautiful fish and corals at the bottom of the sea. It will be a unique experience.
Finally, we have here a much larger space in which to enjoy the sun and the naturally good climate of the Greek Islands. In addition, this beach is a little more remote than the previous ones. If you have a rental car, it will be easy to get there, and it will not be crowded at all.
The ideal plan, for sure. Also, if you are there at night you may see some of the turtles come up to lay their eggs. A show that is well worth watching.
