ZAKYNTHOS or ZANTE

Zakynthos or Zante

Zakynthos or Zante is an enchanting Ionian Sea island with great natural beauty. White beaches, sea turtles and a party atmosphere make Zakynthos, a favorite holiday destination. The Venetians called this southernmost Ionian island, Fiore di Levante, the Flower of the East. Its nobility and fertility made it the jewel of their empire.

It is not without a reason that the Caretta-Caretta turtles have chosen some of its magnificent beaches to lay their eggs on. Sanctuary of the Caretta-Caretta turtle, Zakynthos is the foremost reproduction site where you can observe this rare species in their natural habitat, Marathonisi islet or Caretta’s Fun Park.

Another important species that is found in the water of Zakynthos is the Mediterranean monk seal Monachus-Monachus, which is among the rarest mammal species of the world. The monk seals go in the secluded caves of Zakynthos to give birth to their youth, while the newly-born seal stays in the cave for two weeks before it gets into the sea.

The most famous sightseeing in Zakynthos is the Navagio or Shipwreck Beach that has taken its name from a rusty, wrecked ship that is found on shore. This beach can be accessed with a boat that also passes from the exotic Blue Caves.

Other beautiful beaches in Zakynthos Greece are Gerakas, Laganas, Agios Nikolaos, Kalamaki, Tsilivi, Porto Zoro and Spanzia.
