Where to stay

Party animals should book a hotel in Laganas. As the island’s biggest resort, it has plenty of bars vying enticing you in with lively music. If the long nights out leave you tired, simply kick back on the sandy beach and soak up the sun. Tsilivi is a great family-friendly alternative. Its beach boasts gentle, shallow waters – perfect for splashing around in with the kids. Nightlife is a little more subdued here, but there are still lively bars and romantic tavernas to be found. Culture aficionados should consider in Zakynthos Town, where you'll find most of the island's historical buildings and museums.

Things to see

Many are lured to Zakynthos by the prospect of picture-perfect beaches, and the island certainly delivers on that front. The jewel in the crown is Gerakas Beach, which is blissfully unspoilt and spotlessly clean – an idyllic stretch of sand surrounded by gorgeous limestone and sandstone cliffs. The island is also renowned for its magical Blue Caves, which can be explored on glass-bottomed boat trip. Enjoy a swim in the most brilliantly blue waters imaginable, before continuing on to the legendary Shipwreck Beach, so named because a smuggler ship was wrecked here in 1980. If you fancy a break from the sun, the Byzantine Museum of Zakynthos is home to a stunning collection of precious artworks, including beautiful frescoes dating back as far as the 12th century. You could also take the time to visit Grampsas Winery, where you can sample locally produced wine as you look across the enchanting countryside.
