The Ionian Islands region
Zakynthos is a beautiful Ionian island, just South of Kefalonia, which benefits from long hot summers and wet winters making it greener than many of the other Greek islands. The Northern tip of the island remains rural and unspoilt by tourism, boasting a stunningly beautiful rocky coastline, turquoise blue seas, monastery ruins and phenomenal views, making it a perfect walking, painting, sailing, snorkelling, wind-surfing and villa holiday location.
If it's traditional Greece you're after then a couple of miles down the coast is Agios Nikolaos, the small rustic port of the Skinari area. With its sand beach, the port is the perfect place to sit at a simple Greek taverna next to the water’s edge watching the colourful fishing boats bobbing around. From here you can also organise boat trips to the famous Blue Caves and Shipwreck Beach. Alternatively head up to the mountain village of Volimes complete with old Greek men and women sat outside watching the world go by and local “Carretta carretta” rugs on sale.
There is plenty to do! The Peligoni Club, a sailing and windsurfing club with restaurant, bar, swimming pool and tennis court, is ideally located just down the coast. The club is the perfect place for families with kids and teenagers to spend some time together with plenty to get involved in, from tennis tournaments, sailing races and ringo competitions to one-on-one tuition in all water sports.
The club also caters for adults looking for the ultimate island getaway offering a variety of massage and beauty treatments at their spa and plenty of secluded areas for some relaxing in the sun. There are also adult tennis tournaments, water-sports and backgammon sessions, all complimented by an extensive menu at the restaurant and fantastic wine list at the bar. The club also has a twice weekly 'party night' with hog roast, BBQ and music until the early hours at the bar.
