Asclepeion

The Asclepeion is a place of healing linked to Hippocrates that dates back over 2000 years. It’s found just inland from the capital Kos Town. It’s a vast site with ancient ruins of buildings, arches and pillars as well as steps to each of the three raised levels.

Evangelistria Monastery

The Monastery Evangelistria in Skiathos is the most appealing of the island’s religious sites. It's beautifully well kept with flowers, bunting and immaculate grounds making it a peaceful place to have a wander around or spend some time to yourself.

Kastro

Kastro is the remains of the biggest medieval town on Skiathos. It was occupied from the twelfth century until 1830. A narrow strip of land connects the cliff to the mainland and due to it’s position and fortifications it was a safe place for the inhabitants.

Navagio

Navagio Beach, also known as Shipwreck Beach or Smugglers Cove is one of the most photographed beaches anywhere in Greece. It has stunning azure waters, high cliffs on all sides and a shipwreck on the beach is certainly beautiful and unique.

Porto Limnionas

Porto Limnionas isn't really a beach, it’s a fjord on the south west coast of Zakynthos. The trek down a steep and rocky hill may be challenging, but the views are truly worth it. These sparkling turquoise waters make a postcard worthy setting for a swim.

Porto Vromi

Porto Vromi is a picturesque bay with a pair of beaches on the west coast of Zakynthos. Despite the two beaches being just 250m apart, there’s no direct link between them. Both are small pebble beaches at around 25m wide with harbours but no taverna.

Xigia

Xigia beach is towards the north of Zakynthos island on the east coast. As Xigia has natural spring waters filled with collagen and sulphur it’s renowned as a top-notch therapeutic hot spot and is the perfect place for a relaxing, healing float.

Gerakas

The stunning bay of Gerakas is an unspoiled section of coast that’s the perfect spot for a tranquil break away from the more tourist heavy beaches on the island. There's only a few sun beds available to rent, no water sports, no taverna and no music.

Cameo Island

Cameo Island is a tiny island off the south coast of Zakynthos. It's just 100m east to west and around 60m from north to south. Due to it’s small size there’s not a great deal to see or do, there is a small beach as well as a taverna with great views of the coastline.

Damianos Caves

The Damianos caves are found close to the village of Agalas, it's a unique two-storey cave that’s filled with stalactites and stalagmites. There isn’t a great deal to see as the cave is quite shallow so nothing to explore inside but it's still worth a look.
