Planning a holiday in 2013? Things to do in Zante
Don’t disturb the turtles!
Mediterranean Loggerhead turtles have come to the Bay of Laganas to lay their eggs for over 10,000 years. Up to 2,000 turtles visit this marine park to lay their eggs on summer nights, particularly on the white sandy beach of Sekania.
Take a boat trip to the Blue Caves
On Zante’s north coast, the region of Skinari features stunning rock formations, sea arches and sea caves that reflect light to produce an otherworldly shimmering blue palette. Take a memorable trip in a glass-bottomed boat to view these ancient caves and their crystal-clear waters.
Zante comes alive in February with the Apokries Carnival, which celebrates life through theatre, dance and song. This tradition has taken place since ancient times, when Greeks gods were worshipped ahead of the spring and summer months; in modern day Zante, however, it’s an excuse for a bright and colourful festival that will have you twirling for days.
Whether you’re looking for a Mediterranean family getaway or a romantic break on the beach, Zante is an ideal destination. With a huge range of accommodation on offer, from all-inclusive holiday resorts to quaint B&Bs, this unique Greek island can suit a huge range of budgets and tastes.
