What's Exo Hora like

Exo hora is found roughly in the middle of Zakynthos island over towards the west coast, close to Maries. It’s about 40 minutes from both the airport and the capital Zakynthos Town.

History and tradition can be hard to come by on a tourist focused island and Zakynthos is no different, particularly as it was rocked by a devastating earthquake in 1953 which destroyed large parts of the island. A few gems survived though, and Exo Hora is one of the lucky villages among those ranks.

Visiting Exo Hora is like taking a step back in time, it’s untouched by tourism. There’s no large hotels and only a couple of tavernas. It’s a traditional village that’s perfect for an afternoon away from the crowds.

The central square is home to one of the oldest Olive trees in all of Greece which dates back over 2000 years. There’s also some old stone wells just off the square. The 17th century church Agios Nikolaos is teeming with age old religious icons and worth having a look around.

Exo Hora nightlife

There’s no nightlife in Exo Hora and it’s probably not somewhere you’d want to base your entire holiday as it’s a little out of the way for most peoples tastes.

If you do stay around Exo Hora and fancy a night out then your best bet is probably taking the 20-30 minute drive north east to Alykes and Alykanas.

What to do around Exo Hora

There's not a huge amount to do in and around Exo Hora, there are some lovely picturesque beaches on the west coast, take a look at Porto Stenitis beach, Porto Vromi beach and the unmissable Navagio beach, aka shipwreck beach.

If you like spending a peaceful afternoon looking round an old church or monastery then there's Anafonitria monastery and Agios Georgios Krimnon monastery both are located about 10 minutes drive to the north of Exo Hora.
