A holiday to the Greek island of Zakynthos, or Zante as it is sometimes called, is an excellent way to experience the laid-back atmosphere of the Greek way of life.
Along the east coast there are a variety of resorts ranging from the vibrant resort of Tsilivi with its water parks that can be enjoyed in the day time and its bars, pubs and clubs in the evening to the quieter resorts such as Alykanas with its gently sloping sandy beaches and plenty of family friendly hotels and restaurants offering a wide choice of meals to suit every taste.
To get the most out of your stay in this area it is a good idea to hire either a scooter or quad bike if you are holidaying as a couple or a car if you have the family with you as this will enable you to explore the area fully. A trip into the mountains is recommended where you will be able to experience the magnificent views and may even come across one of the village tavernas where you can sample some of the local food at a very reasonable price.
A stay in the small picturesque village of Amoudi is a must if you are holidaying in this area especially if you are wanting small isolated beaches and lush olive groves.
