Today we are talking about Zakynthos (also called Zakynthos) and why it should be in the list of your summer destinations. Zakynthos is one of the largest islands of Greece, the Venetians who ruled it called it "Flower of the East", for the countless species of flowers that populate it, while legend has it that the goddess Venus was born there and still Zakynthos is there island that deeply marks the poet Ugo Foscolo to whom I perhaps dedicate his most famous work. These are just some of the reasons that made Zante famous all over the world! Those who go to Zakynthos have undoubtedly seen the image of the wreck beach on the internet thousands of times, many of you will also have used it as the background of your pc, so for many people to reach and immerse yourself in this beautiful beach means crown a dream. Of course Zante is also a destination for mass tourism and that's why we recommend avoiding the very high season to admire its wonders, but it is also true that the island manages to have its own identity even during the crowded period as in fact, reaching the island in the north and south, you can find your corner of tranquility. Think that in Zakynthos there is a national marine park founded in 1999 to protect the incredible fauna of the island, to protect the sea turtles "Caretta-Caretta" and the species of the "Mediterranean Seal Monachus". Each turtle has the sandy beaches of Zakynthos to reproduce, making the show unique for tourists visiting Zakynthos, while the seals love to reach the bay of Laganas where they reproduce in the numerous caves present.
How to reach Zakynthos? Zakynthos can be reached by land and by sea, there are direct or charter flights organized by the main tour operators, while multiple ferries leave from the port of Piraeus in Athens, especially in the summer. Where to sleep in Zakynthos?
