Plan the Perfect Zakynthian
Looking the ultimate luxury bachelorette party destination? Look no further than Zante, Greece. Not only is it one of the most amazingly stunning of the Greek islands, it also has a reputation as a great place for those post-sundown parties. Greece, always a popular travel destination, has been experiencing a bit of a pop-culture revival, because its beauty was featured in Wonder Woman and both of the Mama Mia movies, it should come as no surprise that Greece is one of today’s hottest bachelorette party destinations. Zakynthos is one of the hottest of the Greek islands. It became famous for its stunning beaches, but it has developed into a summer party spot and a year-round foodie destination.
You can easily reach Zakynthos from the port of Killini on the western side of Peloponnese, within an one-hour trip. During summer, you can also reach Kefalonia from Zakynthos within one hour and a half.
Zakynthos International Airport “Dionysios Solomos” receives domestic flights from Athens and Kefalonia all year round. During summer, it also receives flights from numerous locations around Europe. The flight time from Athens to Zakynthos is about 45 minutes. The airport is located about 5 km from Zakynthos Town and other popular locations, like Laganas, Tsilivi and Kalamaki, so it is better to take a taxi and reach your destination easily and quickly.
2. Things to Do
While you may choose to stay on one island for your entire stay, the ready availability of ferries and the different flavor offered by each of the islands are only two of the reasons that it is a fantastic idea to try to visit multiple islands during your stay. While we encourage island-hopping, in our to-do section, we have tried to highlight some of the best tourist activities in Zakynthos, to help you with your planning.
DAYTIME ACTIVITY IDEAS
If you go to Greece, plan on spending much of your time at the beach. The relatively small size of the islands in this island-nation mean that almost everything is beach-front, and the views are absolutely stunning. In addition, the snorkeling, scuba, sailing, and other water sports in the Ionian Sea are unlike anything you will experience anywhere else in the world. That is why so many of the activities we suggest start or end at the beach.
Consider a yacht tour from Zakynthos around the Ioanian Sea. This seven-hour luxury tour includes the opportunity to swim and snorkel in the sea, in a small group setting that maintains privacy and offers a level of customer service that larger tours cannot match.
Consider a Zakynthian wine-tasting tour. More intimate than most wine tours, this tour actually begins at someone’s home and gives you a less-touristy experience.
One of the things that makes a trip to Greece unique is how daytime activities seamlessly blend into nighttime activities. Some of the most popular beaches during the day turn into party places at night.
Zakynthos island is famous for its wild nightlife, particularly in the region of Laganas. Many all-night bars and clubs are located in Laganas, a British-frequented resort on the southern side of the island, and things often get extreme. Things in the rest of the island are more lounge, with nice bars in Zakynthos Town and also in Tsilivi, Alykes, Argassi, and other tourist places. These lounge bars usually stay open until 2 or 3 o’clock in the morning.
