Koukounaries

The village of Koukounaries is much smaller than you'd expect being connected to such a popular beach, it's basically a single main road that has a number of restaurants, supermarkets and other tourist facilities dotted along it, there's not much nightlife though.

Skiathos Town

Skiathos Town or Chora is the main harbour for the island and capital of Skiathos. This will be the best place to stay for a lot of people travelling to Skiathos. It offers plenty of bars and restaurants for the evenings and is on the main road so it’s easy to travel to and from.

Troulos

Troulos is a laid-back and relatively quiet resort on the southern end of Skiathos. It’s based around an impressive bay and has a number of quality beaches to choose from. There's no village centre but there are a few shops, restaurants and bars spread out in the area.

Alykes

Alykes is an extension of nearby Alykanas and provides travellers with a desirable mid-point between the developed areas in the south and the unspoiled villages of the north. Alykes has a wide variety of hotels to choose from and tavernas to keep you well fed.

Argassi

Argassi is a small village on the northern coast of the Vasilikos peninsular. There's something for everyone here, a good beach, watersports, shops, restaurants, mini golf and just 4 kilometres from the capital Zakynthos town and everything on offer there.

Kalamaki

Kalamaki is located at the eastern end of the bay of Laganas on the south east coast. It's a huge sandy bay that's a haven for the endangered Logerhead turtles that nest here. Kalamaki isn't one of the most popular resorts but still boasts plenty of accommodation.

Laganas

As the largest and liveliest resort on Zakynthos, Laganas is practically without competition. This huge development on the southwest coast is highly popular with young adults looking to party and is the only true 18-30 style resort on the island.

Tsilivi

Tsilivi, also known as Planos is one of the most developed and popular resorts in Zakynthos.It’s extremely popular with tourists as it has everything you need including a wide range of hotels, restaurants, bars, supermarkets, car hire shops, ATMs and more.

Zakynthos Town

Zakynthos town is the capital of the Island, it's based around the port and as you might expect is a large, bustling town with loads of restaurants, hotels, shops, museums, churches and fantastic night life. The only thing it lacks is a really good beach.

Agios Sostis

Agios Sostis is a peaceful resort on the south east coast, it's an attractive village that's spread around the port and beach with a good selection of hotels, restaurants, bars and shops, most of which are down by the beach but some are in land too.
