Top sights in Zakynthos
The island capital Zakynthos
The city of Zakynthos is located on the east coast of the island on a hill on which the citadel constructed by the Venetians towers above the land below. All of the architecture in the city has a clear Venetian influence and also features highlights such as a multitude of Greek Orthodox churches and a Roman Catholic church.
Navagio Beach (“Smugglers Cove”)
One of the island’s popular attractions is Navagio Beach, a cove that can only be accessed from the sea. The small beach, which is surrounded by 200-metre-high cliffs, is home to the wreck of the smuggling ship “Panagiotis”, which ran aground in 1980 and can now be admired from a viewing platform.
The small village of Keri boasts not one, but two attractions: the bell tower of the Panagia Keriótissa Church, which provides a fantastic panoramic view, and the largest Greek flag in the world, which measures 35 metres long and 18 metres wide and flies high above the “Lighthouse Restaurant”.
The Blue Caves at Cape Skiniari
The Blue Caves located on the northern tip of the island and can be viewed from small boats. They are particularly attractive due to the array of colours featuring a wide variety of intensive shades of blue created by extraordinary light reflections in the water below.
The small uninhabited island of Cranae is located opposite Keri in Laganas Bay. It can be accessed via rented boat and impresses visitors with its luscious vegetation and two secluded beaches, one of which is used as a nesting site by the Caretta caretta sea turtle.
Welcome to Zakynthos
With its beautiful beaches, blue sea, unspoilt nature and outstanding cuisine, Zakynthos is a true paradise for anyone looking for indulgence in every sense of the word. In the winter months, more rains falls on Zakynthos than on other Greek islands, thus giving it luscious vegetation when the summer comes around.
If you like discovering locations on foot, you should be sure to explore the rocky west coast of the island, which offers a wonderful view of the mountains, cliffs, forests and ocean. Both Zakynthos and the neighbouring island of Marathonissi play a practically important role as the main nesting site of the rare loggerhead sea turtle (Caretta caretta) in the Mediterranean Sea.

Fly to Zakynthos with Condor and discover the impressive diversity of this beautiful Ionian island for yourself. The history of the island of Zakynthos is particularly unique given that while the Greek mainland formed part of the Ottoman Empire over many years, Zakynthos, like Corfu, was ruled by western and central European states for more than seven centuries.
The island was most strongly influenced by the Venetian Republic, the characteristic architecture of which can still be found in numerous locations in the present day. The Venetians liked to refer to the island, which is known as “Zante” in Italian, as the “Fior di Levente” (Flower of the East). After Corfu, Zakynthos is the second most important tourist destination in the Ionian Islands.
