Prefecture of Zante (Zakynthos) Warnings and Dangers

  • Turtles

    Take your rubbish home with you - do not leave it on the beach! Plastic bags, balloons and other litter can be mistaken by the turtles as food and once they have eaten it, it can cause them to suffocate or be poisoned (not a nice way for the turtle to die). Be careful where you place beach umbrellas - check that you are not putting them on a turtle...

  • the road to Gyri

    A long, narrow and winding road with heights and sheer drops - it's fine to drive but if they are still running the "safaris" up to Gyri and around - watch out for the loons in the people-loaded 4x4's - they drive fast and furiously.

  • Pussy cats

    There are irrisistible & friednly pussy cats and kittens all over Zakynthos. Take note - I caught ring worm off of them, came home & gave it to all my cats! Obviously ring worm is not dangerous but it was a complete pain in the proverbial!!!


    Take care when walking around, the pavements [when there ARE pavements] are none too even and may have holes or raised lumps of metalwhere there are no pavements take care when walking along the road, especially when having to walk round parked carsif you go out at night in badly lit areas always take a torch

  • Affraid of heights?

    If you are affraid of heights do not go to the viewing platform at Smugglers cove. Heights do not bother me but I should imagine it could be a little too much for some people. Brilliant view over the bay ( pity I only got half of the wreck on my picture )


    As in other areas of Greece please do not throw toilet tissue down the toilet, but put it in the bin provided as the pliumbing system cannot and will not cope with itfailure to do this could reasult in it being returned to you, along with lots of stuff you REALLY dont want !

  • I just have to say something...

    I just have to say something about the weather! You must visit Zakynthos before September, cause then the rain comes or at least it did, when I was there! But even that didn't spoiled my trip!
