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 .

Sami Guide

The town of Sami is located on the Greek island of Cephalonia which lies in the Ionian Sea. Sami is very much a tourist town and is located around 4 km to the north east of Antisamos Beach which is a particularly stunning beach which has some beautiful hills as a backdrop. However, to get the full beach experience on Cephalonia tourists should travel to Myrtos Beach which is to the south of Assos. The beach has white sand, limestone cliffs and crystal clear blue water. For this interested in history there are a number of archaeological sites and landmarks dotted around the island. These include the archaeological excavations at the Roman Villa in Skala and also the Acropolis of Sami which dates back to the 5th century BC. Another popular landmark is St. George's castle in the Livatho Valley which also dates back to Roman times. Naturally produced sites on the island include the large caverns, such as Drogarai Cave and the Melissani Cave, which are both located in Sami. Melissani Cave is particularly famous and features a vast underground lake, which is deep-blue in colour and best explored by boat.
