    1. Adrenaline pumping water sports

    There’s no denying that its beaches are one of the main attractions. They draw in thousands of tourists to Zante each year. However, it’s not all about lazing on the beach and topping up your tan. There are lots of exciting water sports on offer too.

    You’ll find everything from extreme sports such as base-jumping to parachuting and flyboarding. This makes it a great island holiday for those seeking a more adventurous getaway.

    1. A great party scene

    Another thing Zante is renowned for is its great party scene. In fact, its nightlife is known to rival that of Ibiza. This is especially true if you stay within the Laganas region. You can expect open-front bars, popular clubs and a party scene which runs into the early hours of the morning. Visitors will especially love the neon lit, mile-long stretch which is home to over 50 nightlife venues. 

    1. Glass-bottomed boat trips

    When it comes to clear waters, Zante is difficult to beat. Its waters are some of the clearest in the world. This provides tourists with a great opportunity to witness the varied and beautiful marine life on the island. 

    If you don’t fancy scuba diving, glass-bottomed boat trips are an ideal alternative. These allow you to view marine life, such as the famous loggerhead turtles, right beneath you. You’re sure to remember a trip on one of these boats for many years to come. 

    1. Delicious local cuisine

    There are plenty of traditional style tavernas situated around Zante, so you’ll get to taste lots of authentic dishes. Greek foods are renowned for their fresh, tempting flavours. Just some of the local delicacies you’ll want to try include Greek salad, moussaka and pastitsio. 

    One of the reasons the food tastes so good in Zante is because the island benefits from a lot of fresh produce. Its olive oil and seafood are especially fresh and packed full of flavour.

    1. Plenty of historical sights 

    You don’t have to be a party animal or a beach lover to have a memorable Zante holiday.
