All you need to know about the island of Zante

TAKE A LOOK AT OUR GUIDES

Zante or Zakynthos (from its Greek name Ζάκυνθος, Zakynthos) is one of the 7 Ionian islands and with its 406 km² is the third largest island of the Ionian Sea. The island is 40 km long and 17 km wide, with a coastline of 154 km and has a population of about 40,000. It is located 18 nautical miles from the Peloponnese coast.

The biggest city is Zakynthos, also called “Chora” by the Greeks. The city is the main port and alone covers half of the total island population. Homer was the first to baptise the island with the romantic nickname of “Flower of the East”, due to its luxuriant vegetation. In fact, Zakynthos has a varied terrain, with fertile plains in the southeastern part of the island and a mountainous landscape covered in pine forests with cliffs along the western coasts. The economy is based on breeding, agriculture and tourism.

The latter in recent years had an exponential increase, thanks above all to the stunning Shipwreck beach and to the Caretta Caretta turtles who come here to nest thousands of eggs each year.
