Zante

GENERAL

Should be the First on your List for a Great Greek Island Getaway

Land your ideal Zakynthos holiday with a little help from The Co-operative Travel.

It might be the last name in an alphabetical ordering of favourite holiday hotspots, but Zakynthos should certainly be the first on your list if you're looking for a great Greek island getaway.

Also known as Zante, Zakynthos is steeped in natural attractions, from the loggerhead turtles under the sea - whose favourite holiday hotspot this is too - to the peak of the two mountainous promontories which reach out into the sea and enclose the huge Laganas Bay.

Zante's fabulous climate makes a holiday here from spring through to the dying embers of autumn a seriously sound choice. There are some wondrous beaches to discover, but the most famous today is the one simply referred to as The Shipwreck.

The wreck is the remains of a boat which came to grief while carrying an illegal cargo of cigarettes in 1983, and a platform has been specially built to give a good view of it. Make sure you have your head for heights with you if you decide to scale it though - it is quite wobbly!

On the northern part of the island is Cape Schinari, and to the east of the cape are the Blue Caves in the region of White rock, a series of geological formations that have created a unique seascape. Apart from the natural arches that have been carved out by erosion, these caves are famous for the colour of the water in its deepest hollows, a deep azure colour which is most striking in the morning when the light is at its brightest.
