Car Rental Zakynthos

Zakynthos, or Zante for many, is the southernmost island in the Ionian Sea and a famous worldwide holiday destination. The Flower of the Levant, as the Venetians used to call it, boasts a 123 km coastline, the National Marine Park, dense vegetation, and of course, endless beach options. With its hot Mediterranean climate but the typical Ionian scenery of turquoise waters, rugged cliffs, and often lush slopes and hills, Zante has gained a place in the hearts of many. Some of the most well-known attractions of Zakynthos include the Blue Caves situated along the northwest coast of the island, the Shipwreck Beach, Limni Keri and Marathonissi, Alykes Beach, and the famous nightlife area of Laganas. If you choose Zakynthos for your holidays in Greece, you will get to experience unique boat tours in the sea caves and nearby islets, interesting sea activities such as kayaking, and sightseeing at Byzantine churches. Moreover, in Zakynthos, you have the choice of either staying in a luxurious holiday resort or a hotel complex or in family apartments and villas away from the hustle and bustle of mass tourism. Whatever you wish to do on your holidays, Zante will not let you down. Let the journey begin!


Car Hire Zante

If you arrive in Zakynthos by boat or if you’re staying in Zakynthos town, you will probably want to visit the landmarks of the town. Zakynthos main town is located in the south of the island and has great beaches nearby, such as Krioneri and Mpouka, several apartments, and some boutique hotels, as well as many cafe and restaurant options. You can start your walking tour from Solomos Square and visit the Church of Agios Nikolaos Molos, dating from the 17th century. Then you can walk towards the Square of the Fallen in Zakynthos Marina and continue to the public library passing by Zakynthos’ Liberty Statue and the column of Thomas Maitland. A visit to the Museum of Zakynthos is also very interesting as it displays paintings, icons, and statues dating from the late Byzantine era to the devastating 1953 earthquake. After your visit to the museum, you can have your lunch in Ademan Gastrobar in Venizelou Square.

If you still want to continue sightseeing, take the coastal road of Lomvardou Street and visit the remarkable church of Agios Dionisios, the patron saint of Zante. Other must-see attractions in the town of Zante include the Bochali Venetian Castle, which was built at the location of the ancient Acropolis. The castle was built in 1646 AD and during British rule, the castle was rebuilt, and new buildings were added. The panoramic view of Bochali is also worth seeing and you can take amazing pictures with the unique backdrop of the Ionian Sea and Zakynthos town. After your visit to the castle, consider heading to Solomos Winery to live the ultimate wine-tasting experience guided by friendly locals and visit an old, well-preserved wine cellar.

Zakynthos is a dream island for many and for a good reason. Zakynthos' main town and port are conveniently located in the south of the island, making it practical to visit some of the best beaches and must-see attractions. A pleasant afternoon stroll to Stranis Hill to marvel at the panoramic views of the endless blue and greenery of Zakynthos can be a great way to start your day.

Alykes Car Hire

Alykes is a municipal unit and village located on Zakynthos’ northeastern coast and a beautiful holiday resort preferred by many, especially because of Alykes Beach. Alykes in Greek means salt flats, and they were used until 1980, but they are now abandoned. However, the salt flat area is home to numerous migratory bird species. In Alykes, you will find a large variety of villas, studios, and hotels, such as Yolo Resort Apartments, Koukounaria Hotel & Suites, and Alykes Garden Village, which are among the top affordable but quality accommodation options in Alykes. Dining options are also abundant here, as well as cocktail and beach bars. After a relaxing day on the sandy Alykes Beach, you can head to Porto Paradiso with your friends to enjoy dancing and taste some delicious cocktails. Alternatively, if you want to eat like a local, in Koukounari Taverna, you will taste local dishes such as mousaka, gyros with tzatziki, and a homemade pizza accompanied by a cold beer.

Alykes Beach is a long sandy beach connecting with Alykanas. The water is warm and shallow, so it’s ideal for the little ones to swim. The beach is well-organized with sun loungers, umbrellas, toilets, showers, and various beach bars. You will also find watersport activities such as inflatable slides, banana boats, and watersport courses for jet skis, paragliding, and surfing.


What To See In Alykes?

⦿ Visit the Black Cave to enjoy stunning views, a pleasant hike, and homemade lemonade. Bring good shoes, though, because there’s a steep path you have to take to climb to the cave.

⦿ Helmi’s Natural History Museum is a 10-minute drive from Alykes. It’s a small but really interesting museum displaying permanent and temporary exhibitions of the local flora, fauna, and ecosystems of Zakynthos.

⦿ Goumas Winery is a great winery in Alykes, offering exceptional wine tours and wine-tasting experiences guided by locals. You will get to taste Ionian wines and delicious snacks such as local cheese.

⦿ The oldest olive tree of Zakynthos is located 16 km away from Alykes and it’s definitely worth the visit as it is said to be there for 2,000 years!

⦿ The beautiful Church of Agios Georgios is located in Katastari village and you should definitely visit its interior if it’s open. Otherwise, you can just admire the wonderful vistas atop the hill.

⦿ Another must-visit attraction is the 16th-century Byzantine Monastery of St. John the Baptist. It is a complex of two churches, towers, several cells, and religious icons.

⦿ If you want to swim and relax on a more quiet beach than Alykes, then Laperda Beach is your go-to spot. It’s a pebble beach with crystal-clear waters, and perfect for nudism and isolation!


Car Rental Vasilikos

Vasilikos is a charming area situated in the southeastern part of Zante but it’s not exactly a real village. The area of Vasilikos consists of hotels, villas, apartments, shops, restaurants, and general tourist facilities. The landscape is characterized by lush scrubland and the turquoise crystal-clear waters of the Ionian Sea. In Vasilikos, you have plenty of options for swimming, relaxing on the beach, and admiring the natural scenery. Gerakas Beach is included in Zakynthos’ Marine Park protected areas and it’s where the endangered species of Caretta-Caretta hatch their eggs and nest. Before entering the beach, you will find the information and turtle rescue centre in order to be better informed about this gorgeous species and how to behave when you are in the park’s area. If you want to enjoy a pleasant stroll along the beach, head towards the white sandstone mountains to admire these peculiar rock formations. Want to grab something to eat after your visit to Gerakas Beach? Taverna Triodi offers excellent local food, friendly service, and a charming atmosphere to enjoy your lunch.

There are, of course, more beaches to visit in Vasilikos, such as Porto Roma, Mavratzis, and St. Nicholas Beach. Porto Roma Beach is a sandy beach equipped with sunbeds, umbrellas, showers, and a beach bar. It is ideal for families with children due to its shallow crystal-clear waters. Next to the beach, you will find Porto Roma Studios & Restaurant if you want to book accommodation right on the beach. Mavratzis Beach is near Porto Roma and it’s also sandy and clear. Most part of the beach is owned by the 4-star hotel Palazzo di Zante but you can still swim there even if you’re not staying in the hotel. St. Nicholas Beach is connected with lively Banana Beach offering top-rated watersport activities, great seaside hotels such as The Bay Hotel & Suites, and of course, golden sand with the typical turquoise waters to enjoy swimming, snorkeling, and boat tours. After a long day bronzing or having fun on Banana Beach, you probably crave some local Greek food. And the best place to enjoy it is at Babis Taverna, a family-run taverna and not the typical tourist place where you can enjoy house wine, homemade dishes, and fresh grilled squid!


Alykanas Car Hire

Alykanas is a village in the municipal unit of Alykes and a famous holiday resort with excellent tourist facilities. The village extends from Alykes to the end of Alykanas Bay, just before Ammoudi Beach. The main Alykanas Beach is near picturesque Alykanas harbour and it’s dotted with golden sand, warm clear waters, the Valais Watersport center, and some sunbeds and umbrellas. If you’re into snorkelling, the sea bottom in Alykanas Beach is worth exploring with its rich marine life and beautiful sea lilies. There are also many beachfront hotels, such as Valais Hotel and Agia Kyriaki apartments. If you want to have fun with your friends and family, nearby Mill Bar organizes music and dance nights and you can also enjoy your lunch and drinks at the pool. At Epsilon Wine Bar, you will find the second beach of Alykanas, which is more tranquil than the main Alykanas Beach.

Old Alykanas Beach is a nice small cove with shallow transparent waters and sand. You can enjoy your breakfast or lunch at Shoestring Restaurant & Beach Bar. If you want to explore the surroundings of Alykanas, you can drive to Panagia Spiliotissa Monastery, which was built in the 16th century and is surrounded by lush greenery. After your visit to the monastery, a must-visit in the area is Xigia Sulfur Beach. You will enjoy a natural sulfur spa, a refreshing swim, and you can also explore the nearby cave. Prefer to visit the beach in the afternoon because it’s small and it tends to get crowded. Before heading back to Alykanas, enjoy traditional dishes at the family taverna Nireas set in a beautiful rustic environment. Most products used in their dishes come directly from their farm, so you will certainly enjoy local food here.
