What's Anafonitria like

Anafonitria is a small village in the north west of Zakynthos. It’s around 30km from the capital Zakynthos Town and that’s about a 45 minute drive.

There’s not much in the way of hotels, tavernas and shops although there is a handful of each so there are options there.

Anafonitria is an excellent shoppers’ haven, with local markets peddling everything from handiwork’s to local produce. Local olive oil makes an especially popular Greek souvenir.

Even if you don’t plan on buying anything, take a wander through town among the traditional whitewashed walls – there simply isn’t a more Mediterranean way to spend your holiday.

Anafonitria nightlife

Night life is virtually non existent, it would simply be a quiet drink in one of the restaurants or tavernas, that’s about it.

There's no late night bars, no entertainment and certainly no clubs. If you fancy a night out then the 20-30 minute drive to Alykes or Alykanas is probably your best bet.

What to do around Anafonitria

The main attraction in Anafonitria is the Monastery of Anafonitria, it’s stood on the outskirts of the village since the 15th century surviving numerous earthquakes. Also just a stone’s throw from this charming town is the legendary Shipwreck Beach.
