Tourist Resorts in Zakynthos

The main tourist resorts are generally located on the north east coast and around the Vassilikos peninsular, this is because that’s where you’ll find the best beaches.

The Laganas bay area is also popular but has some restrictions on the beaches due to turtles nesting there.

Family resorts in Zakynthos

Alykes and Alykanas are popular with families as both have great sandy beaches and good amenities. Tsilivi is great if your kids are that bit older, teenagers will enjoy the bars and beach party in Tsilivi. Argassi is another good option for families.

Traditional Zakynthos resorts

If you want to get away from the popular resorts and see something a bit more Greek, why not try one the villages in the hills like Agalas, Gyri or Maries. Other traditional villages worth a visit are Agios Leon, Kiliomenos, Agios Sostis, Anafonitira and Exo Hora.

Zakynthos resorts for 18-30s

Laganas is the main 18-30s resort in Zakynthos and has tons of bars and clubs to keep revellers entertained. It’s wild, hedonistic, loud and fuelled by copious levels of alcohol. If you want to take a step back from that but still enjoy the night life then Tsilivi is a good alternative.

Zakynthos resorts for couples

Most resorts are suitable for couples, they’re perfect for enjoying the romantic scenery and delicious fresh food. Where you go will depend on your preferences as a couple. Maybe just avoid Laganas.
