Exotic Zakynthos

Zante, Greece


The breathtaking natural beauty of Zakynthos has drawn tourists to its shores for thousands of years. In ancient times this picturesque island found its way into Greek mythology, the poetry of Homer, and some of the earliest written history. It was a pivotal battleground for the Athenians, Spartans, Macedonians, and a slew of others through the ages.

There are several Mediterranean islets along the coast of Zakynthos Island, some uninhabited and some with commercial structures and private homes.  All are good photo opportunities and welcome sights for sore eyes.

The smaller Blue Caves are accessible only by swimming, while some of the larger caves are restricted to boat approach only for safety purposes. It is possible to park above the cliffs and take a long stairway down to the water, but it can be a difficult climb back up if you’re out of shape.
