Zakynthos Guide

The Greek island of Zakynthos is the third largest Ionian Island and is located in the Ionian Sea. Also called Zante, the island is around 20 km from the Greek mainland and around 15 km to the south of the island of Kefalonia. Navagio Beach is perhaps one of the most famous and popular landmarks on the island. The beach is actually a cove in the south west of the island, surrounded by high cliffs that can only be reached by boat, or parachute if you are brave enough! The beach takes its name from a shipwreck (MV Panagiotis) which sunk on the shore in around 1980. The ridge area from Anafonitria has a small observation deck which overlooks the shipwreck, and there is also a monastery nearby. The unique and stunning scenery around the beach make it a favourite location for BASE jumpers, and each year, in August, a major event in the BASE calendar is held at Navagio.

Zakynthos has two ports. The main port is located in the Zakynthos Town with the other in the village of Agios Nikolaos. From the main port there is a connection to the port of Kyllini, which is the usual route for arrivals to the island by sea from the mainland. From the port of Agios Nikolaos there is a connection to the port of Pesada on the island of Kefalonia .

Kyllini Guide

Kyllini is a Greek town that is located on the Peloponnesian Peninsula's most western crook, and is perhaps best known as home to its busy port. However, there is more to the town than just the port and visitors should take time whilst there to explore all that is on offer. The first thing visitors notice is the town's backdrop of thick pine forests overlooking the town and the medieval castle that is located there. The town is also the beginning of am 11 km long coastline of white sand that gently leads to the lovely waters of the Ionian Sea.

From the town's highest point, the castle, all roads lead back to the town where visitors will find a square with a number of tavernas and shops. Also in the town there are good examples of terracotta roofed houses and apartments that seemed to have been built in a haphazard formation.

Also of interest in the town are a number of Greek and Roman ruins, with the most popular being the Crusader fortress of Chlemoutsi. Over the years the town has been ruled by Germanic tribes, the Turks and the Venetians and have all influence over the town in their own way.
