Scattered along the west coast of mainland Greece the Ionian Islands are lush and green, with vast olive groves, tall cypress trees, imposing mountain landscapes, beautiful beaches and crystal clear blue waters. Each island has a natural beauty and a distinct tradition, cuisine and architecture.
Zakynthos has a varied terrain, with fertile plains in the south-eastern part and mountainous terrain with steep cliffs along the coasts on the west. The mild, Mediterranean climate and the plentiful winter rainfall accounts for the island’s dense vegetation.
The island was named Fiore di Levante by its Venetian rulers meaning Flower of the East because of its exceptional beauty.
To the southwest is the National Marine Park of Zakynthos where loggerhead turtles (Caretta caretta) are found in the bay of Laganas. Caretta is an endangered species. Every year beginning in June the female turtles come to the southern beaches in order to bury their eggs in the sand.
The western coast is refuge and breeding ground for another endangered species the Mediterranean monk seal.
The locals are renowned for their hospitality which, together with the excellent climate and enchanting beauty of the island & why so many holidaymakers visit the island each year and return time and time again!
