Luxury Zakynthos Holidays

Golden sands and sea turtles

Zakynthos

Settled just south of Kefalonia is Zakynthos, also known as Zante. This Ionian island had a bit of a party reputation in the past, but nowadays it’s attracting visitors with its stunning scenery and family-friendly golden sands.

The beaches (which are some of the best in Greece) vary from long swathes of sand to peaceful coves protected by dramatic cliffs. Inland, meanwhile, you have a mix of olive groves, lemon-tree orchards and rolling hills.

What puts Zakynthos firmly on the holiday map, though, is loggerhead turtles. The island is one of the most famous nesting spots in the Med for these friendly-faced sea creatures – keep an eye out for them in the summer months.

Flight Information

Flight time from the UK to Zakynthos is around 3 hours 30 minutes. 

When to go

Zakynthos is very much a summer destination, with temperatures starting to climb around Easter time. May and June are pleasantly warm, and by July you can expect the mercury to nudge 30 degrees. Being an island, you can often expect a sea breeze or two - a welcome break from the midsummer heat. 

Visa Information

Currently visas are not required for UK citizens travelling to Greece

Tipping

In Greece, a service charge will be included in the bill at restaurants and bars. Much like the UK, an additional tip is not required, although is appreciated for particularly good service. It is common to round off the amount when paying cash, particularly with wait staff and taxi drivers. 

Introduction to languages

The official language of Greece is Greek.  English is widely spoken, too, so getting by is easy.
