Explore Zante in 7 days

The entire island of Zakynthos can be visited in 7 days. However, since local public transportation does not offer a comprehensive network of connections to all the local beaches and coves, the best solution is renting a vehicle.

For your convenience, we have prepared a 7 days itinerary that you can print and take with you. We will provide you a Free Map of the Island at the delivery of the vehicle.

Day 3:

Visit the beaches of Vasilikos (in order, Dafni, S. Nikolas, Banana Beach, and Gerakas). The access road is full of curves: be very careful. Due to its proximity to the port and the city, Argassi is not the cleanest beach for swimming. Dafni and Gerakas instead are part of the Marine Park and therefore offer crystal clear water and the opportunity to see Loggerhead turtle nests. Banana Beach is the largest and best equipped beach on the island and just like San Nikolas Beach it offers the opportunity to enjoy numerous watersports.

What to do in Zante town and Laganas in the evening?

In Zante town: in the evening you can park your car or scooter in the town of Zakynthos and take a stroll on the main street, with its many shops, restaurants and cafes. Alternatively, you can reach the Bochali Belvedere from where you can enjoy a spectacular view of the city lights twinkling below. If instead you feel like dancing, you can go to the “Barrage” Club, which organizes the most famous parties on the island every Tuesday and Friday (watch the video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NbHcBRr7UrE).

In Laganas: Laganas’ streets are generally crowded with teenagers between 18 and 21. In this area there is the largest concentration of pubs and night clubs of the island, we recommend that you pay maximum attention to where you park your vehicle; specifically, do not park in front of the clubs. The side of the road where you are allowed to park changes weekly, so ask someone before parking.

Are there parking tolls?

Parking is free on the entire island, except for some private parking lots.
