Athens, but it also has a load of epic places dotted all across the country. That being said, for me, it’s the stunning Greek islands that are totally beautiful and can’t be missed on any trip to Greece. This is especially true when it comes to all the best things to do in Zakynthos – an Ionian Greek Island that’s just stunning to visit.
Now, to get here, you’ll need to either join a shared boat (or hire your own). Prices vary significantly and can be anything from around €30 euro for a large shared boat and a short tour, to around €750 for a boat that we rented with a skipper to drive us around for the whole day.
We loved the whole lobster and pasta. So good!
Over the years, the beach bar has been a little gem of a place to visit for a quick drink or chill out on their intimate little coastline.
Yes, you will have to pay a small fee to enter, though it is a small fee that’s worth it if you’re spending some time on the island.
1.) Explore the Navagio Beach (Shipwreck Cove)
You’ll get to learn loads about the history and peek behind the walls of the fortress itself.
Book a table around sunset and watch the most amazing sunset; all whilst eating through the local catch of the day that’s too good to miss.
Filled with local shops, beautiful churches and a heap of bars and restaurants, it’s the kind of place that’s well worth visiting for an afternoon and early evening bite to eat.
We’ve spent a few afternoons here and the food is incredible. Now, you do need to spend over €100 euros to use their cove/loungers but this is easily done if two of you go for lunch and get a few drinks.
Once here, spend some time on the beach, take some time to chill and look out for the hatching sites that are protected around the island.
Another great viewpoint from the west coast of the island is from Myzithres Viewpoint, where you can see the most dramatic views over the cliffs and across the Ionian Sea.
