1-day-trip to Zakynthos Island!


Zakynthos Island can be either a stop for a short time or a middle destination during a cruise or a tour round the Greek islands. We, as locals have some suggestions to make so that a short visit on Zante Island can be converted into an unforgettable experience! 

Morning- visit at Navagio (Shipwreck) and the Blue caves


The no 1 sight of Zakynthos Island
The view of Navagio Cove from above

The absolute must of Zante is the world famous Navagio. This beach with the dark blue sea water that looks like a huge swimming pool is accessible only by boat. The stop at this unique beach which is surrounded by imperious rocks lasts for about one hour. Thus, you will have the chance to take the best “selfie”, enjoy the sun and swim in this magic sea water.

During your return there is stop at the Blue Caves. Most of the Zakynthian beaches have sea water in light blue-green color but, here at the Blue Caves the water is dark blue. Actually early in the morning as the light of the sun reflects, the rocks, the bottom of the sea and everything that is under the surface of the water are ‘’painted’’ blue

In order to visit these amazing sights we, as locals recommend you the following boat trips:




The boat sets off from the port of Skinari There is a 60-minute-stop at Navagio to swim, sunbathe and take amazing pictures. Depending on the weather there will be a second stop at the Blue Caves for about 15 minutesThe price is € 20 per person for the adults and € 10 for children 5-12 years old. Children under five and infants do not pay a ticket. The boat trip lasts about 2,5 hours.


 2.      Explore Shipwreck by car! A local will take you around!

This trip takes a lot of time to be done but there is a great advantage comparing with the above trips. You can see the Navagio from above and by boat. The view from the platform situated above Navagio is breathtaking plus you will have the chance to take unbelievable photos! The duration of the trip depends on the places you wish to see. The price for the route in the car is € 230 for 1-2 persons. The driver, water and coffee  is included in the price. The cost of visiting Navagio and the Blue Caves  is  included in the price of the trip in the car.

Tips for the trips!

-      Do not forget to take with you a hat, sunglasses and sun tan lotion with high protection!

- Put on your swimsuit!

- Get with you some plenty of water and a snack!

A place to enjoys stalling and visiting restaurants and cafe-bars
Saint Marcus Suare, Zante Town

After your trip depending on your mood you can go for a walk to Zakynthos Town, the capital of Zante Island. There are lots of cafes, restaurants and gifts shops to look around. We recommend you “Spaghettomania” for a meal or “Varkarola’’ where you can also listen to kantades, the traditional Zakynthian songs. For families we suggest to have a coffee or ice-cream at "Kokkinos Vrahos’’ a café that has port view. Children can play in safety at the square in front of the café.
