Prefecture of Zante (Zakynthos) Off The Beaten Path

  • Dafni Beach

    I dont live in Athens .. When I visited it some years back it was rather busy ... lots of traffic and fumes.. Greek Islands are really lovely and Id reccomend Crete for the young .For a more relaxing holiday ... Thassos or Zante, though Laganas in Zante is very lively ..Dafni Beach near to Vassilikos is amazing and in contrast very quiet and...

  • Kalamaki Beach

    Despite being near to the flightpath of Zante airport (which actually passes closer to the noisier neighbouring resort of Laganas anyway), Kalamaki (meaning 'straw', named after the dense bamboo-like grass that grows in abundance to about two or three metres tall all around) is the perfect place for any holiday. The walk to the beach is pleasant,...

  • Giri

    One day whilst touring the island, we ended up in the tiny settlement of Giri, in the foothills. We were desperate for a drink but there were no establishments here. The next moment, a man appeared and beckoned to us to follow him. He took us into the courtyard of his own extremely modest house and gestured what we would like to drink. Here we sat...

  • One For The Pot......?

    We spotted these rabbits while seeking out pitch springs we had read about. Never did find the springs but we came across these furry little creatures. Sad to say, we could only believe they were destined for the pot or possibly kept for their fur.

  • Natural Spring

    At the far end of Kalamaki beach there is a natural spring. Walk along the beach, walking away from Laganas, through a nudist area, and you will see it pouring down the rocks and into the sea.The water was FREEZING but it was very interesting to see!!

  • Kalamaki to Laganas by beach!

    Make your way along the beach from Kalamaki to Laganas, or the opposite way round! A lovely long walk! Prepare to wade knee high at points along the way though, due to the strange rock formations that jut out into the sea, as you can see in my pic. Expect to get between the two resorts in about an hour or maybe even two if you keep stopping for a...

  • Shipwreck

    This is definatley off the beaten track. You can only get to this beach by boat, which many tourists do, in the thousands! Another great way to view the wreck is from a viewing platform high above the beach, not good for anyone not liking heights. The wreck looks nice from far but when you get there it is far from nice.

  • Smugglers cove

    Breath takingly beautiful. Nice from far but far from nice when you actually get up close to the wreck. It is full of graffiti and looks like an old rust bucket. Not sure if the story is true about the wreck , but it sounds good anyway!! It just seems a little too well placed on the beach if you get my DRIFT :-))

  • Secluded beach

    We walked for about an hour from Tsilivi and came across this lovely quiet beach, sorry I don't know the name of it. You could hire these sun beds on the lawned area of a small cafe - bar right besides the beach, heaven. We didnt think that though on the long walk back after a full day lazing around and doing nothing!!!! It was worth it though...

  • Sunsets

    If you drive out from the towns into the real parts of the islands you may find some spectacular sunsets like this one. Just imagine sitting here with a long cool glass of something nice and cold, watching the sun go down......... perfect.
