To Zakynthos

Zakynthos has an international airport and is easily accessible by ferry from Lefkas, Kefalonia and also mainland Greece, so arriving here will be easy today. It is a relatively small island and is known for its crystal-clear water, the white cliffs and the rugged mountains. Drive along winding roads through the unspoilt interior to your studio located on the east side of the island, on a quiet and fine sandy beach. After checking in, take a dip in the sea water, or settle down at one of the beachside taverns and enjoy a cool drink. If you’re full of energy explore the villages with orange roofs and marvel at the two million olive trees as you avoid crossing goats before cooling off on one of the sandy or pebble beaches.

The Shipwreck and the Blue Caves & free time

Smuggler’s Bay is on the agenda today. The Navagio Bay has become famous for the shipwreck that lies here. In 1980 the ship ran aground, full of cigarettes and booze, hence the nickname Smuggler’s Bay. You’ll depart from the harbour and sail across the blue waters to the bay, before continuing to the ever-changing shades of the water in the Blue Caves. The next day you’ll have plenty of time to explore Zakynthos on your own. Journey back to the shipwreck to see it from above or head to Cameo Island and snorkel off of the its golden-sand beaches. For the most beautiful sunset go to the lighthouse in Keri. It’s the perfect vantage point to watch the sun disappear into bay.
