Finally, the central region is rich with olive groves and vineyards. It’s here that you will be able to taste some of the best wines in the Mediterranean.

Zante offers a lot of variety from the serene and peaceful Alykes to the family favourite Tsilivi which not only boasts a first-class beach but great restaurants, a waterpark and numerous water sport facilities. Laganas is a firm favourite with younger travellers and alongside its fantastic nightlife, it has plenty of beach bars and day time activities to ensure you will never be bored. If you want to take a little break from the bustling resort then take a walk over the wooden bridge to the Cameo Island for a beautiful secluded beach and bar.
