130 reviews
Visit a string of Zakynthos’ beauty spots without a transport hassle in sight on this full-day tour. Traveling by air-conditioned vehicle and boats; cruise to Shipwreck Beach (Navagio), ride a glass-bottom boat to the Blue Caves, swim in Xigia’s sulphur-rich, spa-like waters, see Cameo Island, visit viewpoints, and more. A lunch stop (own expense) and hotel transfers from Zakynthos Town and select south- and east-coast resorts complete the day.

A quiet place where you can stop for a while and enjoy the shade. We didn´t meet any visitors here, the church was unfortunately closed.

Anafonitria Monastery is a must whoever visits Zakynthos!It is not only connected with St.Dionysios who forgave the murderer of his brother at the Monastery but it's also a historical building-possibly the oldest on the island after the earthquakes of 1953 when 90% of the buildings were destroyed.It's recently been estimated that it goes back to the 10the century!Ideal for exploring,taking photos and visiting this unique little church which has become a high tourist destination!Soon they will also be opening up a museum in the grounds so possinly by next year it will have even more to offer!For those who also want to take a break there are a couple of coffee shops and a taverna there too!Great for a day out!

Interesting monastery with back story involving ruby red slippers on display by saint. Donkeys outside by stall held more interest for our 11 year old. Nice place to stop off at and have a look around

A bit of history and culture and worth a visit on your way to the shipwreck. Snack bar, taverna and gift shop. And donkeys!
