Zakynthos, also known as Zante, is full of natural attractions, from the loggerhead turtles under the sea to the mountainous promontories that reach out into the sea and enclose the huge Laganas Bay.
Zante’s glorious climate makes a holiday here from spring through until autumn a perfect choice for sun-worshippers. There are also some beautifully scenic beaches to enjoy and discover, but the most famous today is the one simply referred to as The Shipwreck.
The wreck is the remains of a boat which came in to troubled waters while carrying an illegal cargo of cigarettes in 1983. A platform has been specially built to give a perfect view of it. Be sure have your head for heights with you if you decide to scale it though – it is quite wobbly!
