This is a true
story about a couple who found a beautiful holiday island in the
warm clear waters in the Ionian Seas just off the west coast of Greece.
Mike and Anna had discovered a
real treasure, an Island called Zakynthos with all its modest beauty laid back soft sandy beaches and
a taste of
history with exciting night life. Of all the places we travelled to around Greece,
we found this Greek Island to be the best. This is where we needed to
come to and relax after the every day stresses of life in the United
Kingdom. This is a beautiful Holiday Island for Couples.
experience's and sights while exploring together and relaxing in many of
the wonderful secluded sandy beaches.
We also made a truly surprising additional discovery...............so do read
on, all will be revealed.

and Harbour -
Venetian fortress used to rise over the capital but today only the gate
and the outer walls are still standing. However, the view over Zakynthos
Town and its surroundings from this spot is simply astonishing

at the World Famous Navagio Beach
is a wonderful destination for couples. There are great beaches all around
the island. Certain beaches can be very private if you prefer. The best ones are on the eastern side
and are soft and sandy. The most popular beaches are Alikes, Alikanas,
and Agassi. On the west part, the cliffs falling into the sea make the
beach inaccessible but you can swim at the famous Navagio, a beach
created around an actual shipwreck that can only be reached by boat, and
at the Limnionas lagoon.

Taverna......... watching a
Sun set together...........
Airport on a rainy morning with the traffic jams far below on the
M23 motorway, we flew on south to the sun. We couldn't wait to be
back on to the Island. Relaxing and enjoying the sunshine,
local foods with daily fresh bread from the baker just down the road
or buying fresh food at the market. We could get fresh milk
and eggs from the village shop just across the road. Eating out at
any of the many traditional Greek Taverna's is just bliss. Swimming in the warm
clean sea when-ever and not needing to check the latest weather
forecast. Its just so healthy and refreshing with all the warm sunshine and
soft sandy beaches. After an idle dip in the warm clear sea, a visit to a
Taverna for a glass of cool Retsina and fresh Greek fish salad refreshment
is a must.

is one of the largest Ionian islands just off the west coast of Greece and south
by 8.5 miles from the beautiful island of Kefalonia. Zakynthos is an
island very rich in history dating back to 1500 BC, from the Achaeans through to
Roman times and more recently the Venetians. A beautiful green island with many
attractions it is even possible to catch a glimpse of Loggerhead Turtles
gathering to lay their eggs on the southern shores. The landscape is one of
green slopes, olive groves and craggy coasts interspersed with beautiful white
Once described by the Venetians as the 'Flower of
the East' this charming island has all the positive ingredients for a
great holiday and blossoming romance. Zakynthos is a wonderful destination for
couples who want to be alone with just each other. There are great beaches all
around the island. The best ones are on the eastern side. The most popular
beaches are Alikes, Alikanas and Turtle beach. You can go to a crowded beach or
just pick a secluded sandy beach to be alone together. On the west part, the high cliffs
falling into the sea make the beach inaccessible but you can swim at the famous
Navagio, a beach created around an actual shipwreck that can only be reached by
boat, and at the Limnionas lagoon. We found the northern part of the island
quieter than the southern area.
We have made lots of friendships
with the locals in the villages where we stay. The people are always happy to see
you. The Greeks are by nature hospitable, proud and very friendly people,
especially towards the British. If you can't speak Greek, they'll speak
English......... Then we realized that two or three weeks holiday was never
quite long enough..........................

The new town was
built on the ruins of the ancient one in an attempt to preserve the
traditional architecture but this was only possible in a few areas, like the
spacious Solomos Square, due to great poverty the disasters of the
earthquake caused to the above population. The long waterfront
extending between the Solomos Square (on its right) and the Church of Agios
Dionysios, saint patron of the island (on its left) is the most popular and
crowded place of Zakynthos, gathering many restaurants, tourist shops and
ferry agencies. Another very interesting church of the town is the
Church of Agios Nikolas tou Molou, located on the waterfront.
All the commercial and cultural life of the island is concentrated on the
third parallel street off the waterfront. Solomos Square (Plateia in Greek)
is a large square boarded by some elegantly arcaded buildings. The square
was given the name of the famous Greek poet Dionysios Solomos who wrote the
Greek National Hymn. A museum has been founded in honour of the life and
work of the poet, and is located close to the Plateia (square) Agiou Markou.
The capital of Zakynthos also has a Museum of post-Byzantine art which
stands on the Plateia Solomos, as well as a museum dedicated to the life and
work of the Greek novelist and play writer Grigorios Xenopoulos, located
close to the Church of Agios Dionysios. This impressive church stands
on the left end of the waterfront and is devoted to the saint patron of
Zakynthos whose corpse is kept there, in a silver carved reliquary. The
church also houses some beautiful and valuable wall paintings.
