All you need to know about Zante Island

TAKE A LOOK AT OUR GUIDES

Zante or Zakynthos (from its Greek name Ζάκυνθος, Zakynthos) is one of the 7 Ionian Islands. With its 406 km², it is the third largest island in the Ionian Sea. Zante is 40 km long and 17 km wide, with a coastline of 154 km and a population of about 40,000. It is located 18 nautical miles from the Peloponnese coast. The largest town and main port is Zakynthos, also called “Chora” by the Greeks, where half of the total island population lives.

Zante’s beauty was first celebrated by the legendary Greek poet Homer, who gifted the island with the romantic nickname of “Flower of the East”, due to its lush vegetation. In fact, Zakynthos has a very diverse landscape, with fertile plains in the southeastern part of the island and mountains with dense pine forests and breathtaking cliffs along the western coast. The economy of Zante is based primarly on livestock, agriculture and tourism.

Tourism is actually the main economic resource of the island and has grown exponentially in recent years, thanks to crystal blue waters that attract divers and snorkelers, but especially to the stunning Shipwreck Beach and to the Loggerhead turtles (Caretta Caretta) who come here to nest and lay thousands of eggs every year.
