Zante - Offering the perfect beach holiday
The main attraction for visitors on holidays in Zante (also known as Zakynthos) are the island's 57 miles of coastline. In particular the eastern and southern shores which are packed with beautiful coves and picture postcard bays. One of the largest of the Ionian Greek Islands with a great Mediterranean climate, Zante holidays are perfect for a low cost getaway. Because of its unique shape Zante holidays offer many bays and coves ideal for exploration by tourists of all ages. Zante is often referred to as 'the green island of poetry, song and love' and the approach by ferry certainly provides an inspiring and poetic sight. This picturesque town curves around a bay which is dominated by a Venetian Fortress as well as the St Dennis Cathedral.
Catering for all ages
Although only a medium sized island, it caters for a wide range of visitors and cheap holidays in Zante are available to all ages. Boasting bars and nightclubs that are open until dawn with dancing and drinking to please even the most heavyweight party animal Laganas is an extremely popular party destination.
