Beach holidays in Zante
If you’re looking for a fun-filled family day out, then head to the ever popular Tsilivi or Nikolaos Beaches. These long stretches of super-soft sand are fringed by shallow waters and packed with plenty of amenities, making it a great spot for the little ones to enjoy the beach. You’ll find plenty of loungers and parasols, restaurants for a spot of lunch and even Wi-Fi on the beach! For a more relaxing and peaceful day out, head to the small pebbled cove of Porto Vromi or the golden sands of Banana Beach. There’s a few less tourists here and, in turn, a few less amenities making it more appealing to couples and those looking for a chilled out day trip. For a completely unique beach day out, it has to be Navagio Beach or ‘Smuggler’s Cove’. Accessed only by boat, surrounded by blue caves and displaying a huge shipwreck as its centrepiece, this beach is must-see in Zante.
Food and drink in Zante
Many restaurants here serve small dishes known as mezze to start. Usually shared by all, it gives you the perfect excuse to try a bit of everything this holiday! Popular mezze dishes include stuffed grape vine leaves known as dolmadakia, small feta cheese stuffed pastries called tyropitakia and plenty of fresh bread served with a choice of dips. Main meals are just as flavoursome with grilled meats, fresh seafood and refreshing salads in the spotlight. Must-try meat dishes include souvlaki – a skewered kebab of marinated meat and veg, and gyros – a pitta or flatbread stuffed with rotisserie-style cooked meat and stuffed with salad and sauces. Traditional dishes such as moussaka are not to be missed and can also be enjoyed as a veggie version which packs just as much flavour. And finally, a good Greek meal should be washed down with a local beer or wine and a good glug of ouzo!
As for the nightlife in Zante, well, it’s as varied as they come! The infamous ‘Zante Strip’ in Laganas is the place to go for world-famous DJs, neon lights, all-day boat parties and dancing until dawn. If you’re after an unforgettable party holiday then this is the ultimate hedonistic destination of sun, sea and partying. If you’re looking for something a little more laid-back then head to resorts such as Alykes and Kalamaki where you’ll find a number of traditional tavernas and chic cocktails bars. Like to keep your options open? Then try Argassi – this well-established resort offers all the laid-back charm of smaller towns with a handful of late night bars and a smattering of nightclubs for those nights when you just feel like letting your hair down.
