The island of Zakynthos is located in the Ionian islands and it is one of the small islands near kefalonia. Year by year its population is growing tremendously with a lot of tourism and locals too, it is great in summertime for many activities.


Zakynthos has its own natural beauty with many places to go and many cafes to discover. Zakynthos is known for the famous saint Agios Dionisios that is laid to rest there for over a thousand years and it has become a big tourist attraction. It also has a famous place called Marathia which is a small island open in summertime for tourists and locals to have fun. Zakynthos has the caretta-caretta turtle that you can see all year long, you can also rent a jet ski sow you can take a tour around the island and see magnificent views of the island from all the corners. The island also has a wonderful history from the Kingdom of Naples when it was occupied by the venitians from that it was named Zante in venitian. Today Zakynthos still has the venetian structures and a little bit of the language remaining, they even play the mandolin and dance waltz, that is how much they liked the venetians.
