Zante is full of great entertainment venues such as Water Village which is full of slides and pools for the whole family to enjoy.

Zante offers a whole host of historic and cultural sights, including a number of churches and the museum which is dedicated to Dionysios Solomos, a 19th century poet from the island.

Boat trips are popular here and with loads of bays, coves and peninsulas it can be a great way to explore. There are also some great opportunities for those who enjoy outdoor activities such as rambling, coving or exploring the rolling hills covered in olive groves and pine trees or take advantage of the wide range of watersports that are available.

Zante is home to the Loggerhead Turtle, which are very well conserved and respected on the island. During the summer months holidaymakers can visit Laganas and Kalamaki and take a glass-bottomed boat trip to view the turtles or even take a swim with them.

For those who want to party, a trip to Laganas is a must. Full of neon-lit pubs, clubs and bars, Laganas is one of Greece's top 4 party resorts.

So for days and nights full of fun and adventure, Zante is the place to be.
