Commonly known as Zante – I had the best holiday in June 2018 visiting this beautiful island in the Ionian Sea. Lets just start with the sea – WOW. Note that my images are hardly edited (a slight lighting balance but I’m not one to use Photoshop). It really is that clear, clean and blue (not to mention warm and shark free – bonus points).
I stayed in the picturesque area of Alykes which meant I could meet locals, travel conveniently all over by scooter and enjoy cocktails on the beach without being disrupted by 100’s of tourists. Of course the must see places are Navagio (Shipwreck) Beach and Blue Caves. The nightlife was amazing in Laganas (22km from where I stayed, but meant an adventure of irresponsible walking and hitch-hiking the distance just to get to the clubs – Don’t worry I wasn’t alone). I would have loved to stay and extra week to see other parts of the island and venture to Marathonisi (Turtle) Island and Cameo Island, top up the tan and eat more vegetarian gyros…..But I will be back!
I booked my holiday through TUI and happy to share recommendations of accommodation, bars, restaurants and excursions – Message me if you’re thinking of going to Zante x
