A couple of weeks ago, I visited the beautiful Island Zakinthos (also known as ‘Zante’) with my family. Since I travelled to Santorini last year, I’ve had high expectations of the Greek Islands. They can bring you all their own characteristics. Zakynthos has plenty of beautiful beaches, each one is really worth visiting! Especially the famous Navagio Beach with the shipwreck, which you can only visit by boat. When in May, the Island is peaceful because that’s the beginning of the season, while in July it’s very crowdy and full of tourists. It is the right time to visit this Island around the beginning of the season, which is absolutely the time when Zakynthos is the most beautiful and full of warm locals who are not stressing out on high season. I like the feeling of relaxing at the beach, walking through cute little villages and not being bothered by too many tourists who are blocking my way when taking a picture of something nice, having dinner at a traditional restaurant and take everything once at a time. That’s the perfect holiday! And so we did.
During the week, we’ve seen a lot. When visiting this Island, hiring a bike, squad or car is really a good idea. Especially when you cannot do everything by foot anyway. The Caretta Caretta turtle is joining Zakynthos every year, so it’s worth taking a boattrip to spot the turtles and to relax on Turtle Island (Marathonisi) for a while. There are also several cute little villages, with colourful houses and tiny churches. The blue caves are heavenly and also a good trip to make! And as I said before: every beach is worth visiting, with the clear seawater you’ll live in paradise just for one moment. Just scroll down the pictures, then you’ll know what I mean :).
See you soon!
