Zakynthos sight seeing guide
Our Zakynthos sight seeing guide is designed to help holiday makers as well as travellers decide which of the islands sights and attractions they want to visit whilst on the island.
If you’re one of those people who simply goes to a nice hotel in a village with a beach and spends your whole week either in the pool or in the sea then this page is probably unnecessary.
However, if you are someone that wants to see the cultural sights and learn about the history of the island then this is the page for you. This is also the page for you if you have kids that you want to keep entertained as it’ll help you to find things to do that they might enjoy.
The map above will help you to see where each attraction is on the island so if you know where your staying you can find local sights, if your not sure where to stay yet then you can look for places to stay near some of the sights you want to see.
Historical sites in Zakynthos
Zakynthos has some fantastic old churches but probably the best historical site is the Bohali venetian castle, it has the remains of several buildings within the grounds and it's not far from the capital so easy to get to from the most popular resorts in the south east.
Kids activities in Zakynthos
Zakynthos is always popular with families and one of the most visited attractions is Water village which is a water park close to Zakynthos Town, it has a lazy river, multiple slides and a child and baby area too.
Another option for the youngsters is a trip to the turtle rescue centre which is a lovely place to take the kids to learn about these beautiful creatures and what the locals are doing to help conserve the species.
There’s also a virtually endless supply of great kid friendly beaches and hotels with pools so you won’t be short of ways to tire them out.
