Discover Mediterranean hotels and villas in Zakynthos, Greece

One of the largest islands in the Ionian Sea, pretty Zakynthos lies just off the west coast of Greece. The buzz of its capital and main harbour city (also named Zakynthos) centres around a waterfront main square and open-air seaside eateries. At nearby beaches – including Agios Nikolaos, Tsilivi and Makris Gialos – you’ll have a chance to dive into crystalline waters or lounge on sun-soaked stretches of sand. Ready to set sail? Explore the rugged west coast, where limestone cliffs dive straight into clear turquoise waters, en route to dramatic Navagio Beach – best known for its shipwreck-topped crescent of golden white sand (arrive eye-blearingly early to beat the crowds).
