Zakynthos is the third largest island of the Ionian Islands, and is an ideal place for those looking for quite relaxation. Its landscape is shaped by prolific plains, mild slopes and hills. The plains are covered with rich vegetation: olive, lime and grape plantations stretch across the land and rocky shores end in crystal clear waters on the western side of the island.
The “Fragrant Island” has an area of 404 km 2 that can be divided into 4 different parts: the Laganasi Bay full of holiday resorts;the Vassilikos peninsula;the steep, rocky western parts with the “Blue Caves” and the north-eastern shore covered with pines and dotted with beaches from the city of Zakynothos to Agios Nikolaos.
One of the main sights to see on Zakynthos is the Navagio Bay with the rusting smuggler ship resting majestically on its beach and of course, its protected turtles. Visitors to Zakynothos can also make a boat trip to Corfu and Kefalonia.
