How do I get to Zakynthos Island? You can get to Zakynthos by car, plane or bus!
Zakynthos is one of the most beloved Greek islands. Favorite of Artemis and Apollo, or so it is said, due to the idyllic landscapes, crystal clear waters, beautiful sunsets and mild climate. Named "Il fiore di Levante", the island is part of the Ionian Islands, with about 123 km of coastline.
The island is home to some of the most famous beaches in Greece (Navagio, Laganas and Volimes). The island is one of the last refuges of the sea turtle Caretta-Caretta and the Mediterranean seal Monachus-Monachus. Because they are on the verge of extinction, for their protection, the Marine National Park was established in the Gulf of Laganas.
The mountains on the island are not very high, but they create a unique landscape, quiet bays and beaches that stretch for 100 km.
