Best things to do in Zante

You’re only in Zante for a week so MAKE THE MOST OF IT!

Get out exploring and experience as much of the island as you can.

Here’s our tips for the best things to do in Zante, share them with your squad so you don’t have to persuade them to leave the pool!

THE BEACH

The Bay of Laganas is the 3rd largest in Greece and is absolutely beautiful; with careful sun bed selection you can experience serenity at it’s finest. The water is calm as a lake, warm as a bath and you can wade out for ages without being out of your depth!

There’s no sharks or jellyfish or anything that can sting you – it really is perfect and one of the reasons Zante is such a great place to visit. So, pack your beach bag, slap the sunscreen on and get to the beach.

Hire a pedalo, have an ice cream, play volleyball and soak up one of the most lovely places to swim on the planet.

WATER SPORTS DAY

Enjoy an epic water sports day at St Nicks beach which is about 30 minutes by coach or taxi from Laganas. This is seriously good fun and a brilliant way to spend a day with your friends.

You will scream, laugh and some of you will probably cry! The Crazy Sofa is terrifying, the Ringo’s are blatantly dangerous and the Flying Fish is not even funny!

You get a free transfer to this beach and discounts off the activities if you book events with VVIP Zante which saves you at least 30 euro. Details here  VVIP Zante discount wristband

PORT ROXA

Our top tip for a cheeky day out is to Porto Roxa – about 30 minutes from Laganas. It’s nice to explore wherever you visit and this excursion provides lots of fun. Dodging goats and chickens on mountainous Greek roads is truly life affirming and then finding paradise at the end of your journey is simply amazing.

Grab a cold beer, munch some Greek BBQ and watch people leap off the diving platform into the incredibly clear water below. It’s about 20 foot and looks easy when watching others – but when it’s your turn you will feel the fear! Will you make the leap?

PRIVATE SPEEDBOAT HIRE

Enjoy a memorable day out on your own speedboat! Cruise round the Bay and soak up the beautiful scenery – be sure to designate a turtle spotter as you WILL see one if you keep your eyes peeled.

Then head over to Turtle Island where you will fine beautiful beaches, secret caves to explore and the brave amongst you can scale the cliffs and leap into the turquoise water below.

This will be the best day of your holiday so make sure you make a plan with your friends to do this.

WATER PARK

This is a fun day out and also a great way to catch a tan. It’s about 30 minutes from Laganas, and you can book it from any shop on the Strip. Expect to pay 20 – 25 euro with the transfer. Make sure you try out the Go-Carts while you are there as they are really good.

Top tip – bring your own food or have a big breakfast before hand, the food there is expensive and not the best.

LOVE GREECE

Greece is the birthplace of civilisation and one of the most ancient cultures in the world – when you visit you will find out what makes it so special. When you get it, when you ‘Go Greek’ and really relax, you may find yourself never wanting to leave.

Get to the beach about 5pm when the heat of the day has gone, look out over the sea and forget about the petty worries of your day to day life.

Zante is a wonderful place – who knows you might enjoy the beautiful scenery and the relaxed way of living so much that you ‘get the bug’ and return every year like the thousands of people who have moved to the island to live out their days.
