Bluer than Blue -Encounter Zakynthos with a VIP private tour in one day!

Bluer than blue  — Encounter Zakynthos in one day


When my wife and I were making travel plan of our Greece tour, we didn’t put Zakynthos in our schedule initially because the island was not that famous as Santorini here in China. One week before our trip to Greece, my wife told me we got to visit Zakynthos because she found the famous Shipwreck is on that place.

Yes, the ‘Shipwreck’ is more famous than the island it belongs to. That’s mostly because there is a Korean TV series named ¨Descendants of the Sun" very popular in both China and Korea. And one of the most romantic plots is filmed at Navagio beach (which is the Famous Shipwreck Beach).

So we decided to pay a one day visit to Zakynthos from the original Athens trip. It was really an unprepared schedule but luckily I found zantehotels4u.com by google. I sent an email to describe my flight schedule and wish list. And zantehotels4u team replied me in just few hours and provided me a fully customized plan based on my requirements and time constraints. No doubt I accepted it immediately.


Finally came that day — July, 16, 2018. We caught the early flight from Athens to Zakynthos. Zakynthos is located in the south of the Ionian Sea and is also called "Zante", a name given to it by the Romans and Venetians, once they for centuries occupied the island.

After having a simple breakfast, our lovely guide Pigi picked us up at the airport. It was a truly VIP tour so we didn't need to wait for other passengers we just started heading to the north. It took about 1 hour to reach our first stop — a spot located above the gulf of Alykes.

Beautiful view of the sun shining over the gulf of Alykes

Continuing the route along the coast, after passing the port of Agios Nikolaos we arrived at the northest part of Zakynthos, called Korithi. There are old light house and wind mills in Korithi. We took a good rest here before taking our boat trip.

We were the first batch of passengers that day ( Most of us were couples 😊 ). A small boat took us to the Blue Caves. Unique landform and sunlight makes the surface of water presenting a unique blue. "Beautiful"!!





















I jumped into the water for swimming but the water was way too cold. So I suggested not swimming for a long time here.🙂

Then we were heading to the long-anticipated Navagio beach (Shipwreck). In 1980s, a freight liner ran aground here and still rests buried in the limestone gravel of the beach that now bears the nickname Shipwreck. We stopped here for an hour and we really enjoyed the time staying on the beach.




















Back to the port and time for lunch, our guide Pigi took us back to Korithi to have some sea food and Greek yogurt. Our next stop is Shipwreck Bay Lookout that hangs above Navagio beach.

Next I’m going to tell you that the scenery I watched there was far beyond my expectation. It was truly amazing and definitely a memorial moment in life. Our Chinese and English vocabulary is too poor to describe what I saw.







"Bluer than blue" - That's the only words that could come to mind.

Then we headed back to Zakynthos Town. Along the road we saw some ancient villages and green mountains which is also impressive. It was a long way, nearly 2 hours. Luckily we had Pigi. Pigi is not only good at driving, but also good at talking. Although we got along for only a few hours, but we talked about many topics ranging from zante/greece/Trump/politics to drama/ work/life. It was really interesting for such conversations between people from different culture background.

Zakynthos town is small, peaceful and beautiful. Pigi introduced us the main buildings and delicious food here. We even enjoyed the ice cream she recommended.

Then we flied back to Athens in the evening. A really perfect day in Zakynthos, and Pigi made it even better. 


Thanks to zantehotels4u team’s private tour service, I’m pretty sure that we’ll be back here some day in the future.


Thank you Jiexi for the beautiful review-blog! We hope to see you again soon! 🙂

Hotels with swimming pools

Ancient Greeks and Romans  built artificial pools οn purposes of athletic training in the palaestras, nautical games and military exercises. Roman emperors owned private swimming pools in which fish were also kept, therefore one of the Latin words for a pool was piscine( pesche = fish).
