Boat Trip Zakynthos

Story/Tip

Boat trip Photo, Zakynthos, Greece
Quote:
While I was on holiday this summer on the Greek island of Zante with my husband we managed to go on a couple of boat trips. Our favourite trip was the one that left from the beach at Laganas. This interesting trip involved looking for the loggerhead turtles in the sea and then seeing the Marathonisi Caves before reaching and stopping for a while on the uninhabited island of Marathonisi. Both my husband and I thought that this trip offered excellent value for the price of €15 each and it was cheaper than the trip offered by our tour operators. There were about a dozen passengers on the boat and we all got a good view out to sea.It wasn't the best time of year to fin...Read More

Story/Tip

Quote:
The ‘Turtle Spotting’ boat trip was the second boat trip that I went on during my recent holiday to the Greek island of Zakynthos (Zante). My husband and I had already enjoyed a boat trip from this company and we had seen turtles, visited caves and Marathonisi Island. We decided to go on this second and shorter trip mainly for the joy of getting out to sea on a boat for short while. Of course we were still hopeful of seeing a turtle or two.We paid for the trip and were given a ticket and while we waited we did the same as we had done before the last trip and had a drink at The Blue Waves restaurant which was close by. When it was almost time for the trip to start we...Read More

Quote:
On my recent holiday to the Greek island of Zakynthos I visited the lovely church of St Dionysios located in Zante Town. This church is the largest in the town. There were other tourists both outside and inside the church. Some visitors took photographs outside, as we did, but cameras are not allowed inside the church. St Dionysios is the main church on the island of Zakynthos. It is dedicated to the patron saint of Zakynthos, namely Saint Dionysios.The church was founded in the year 1708 and restored around fifty years later (sources vary) and renovated in the year 2000. St. Dionysios Church survived the Zante earthquake of 1953. On ascending the steps...Read More

Blue Waves is a family run restaurant, snack bar and hotel. It stands on the beach-front of Laganas Beach on the island of Zakynthos. It has been running for twenty-five years. I visited here several times during my recent holiday to this Greek island. The first trip here was because we (my husband and I) had about half an hour to fill before going on a boat trip and so we (my husband and I) decided to find a restaurant or bar where we could have a soft drink and use the facilities while we waited. We needed to find somewhere close to the jetty so that we didn’t miss the boat. There are two bars close to each other and staff from both restaurants vied for our custom. We chose Blue Waves....Read More

The Louis Zante Beach hotel is the fourth hotel that I have stayed at in the Louis group of hotels. I stayed here with my husband for two weeks on an all-inclusive basis at the end of August and into September.We were both impressed with this four star hotel. We particularly liked the high standard of service here and found that from arrival and check in until checking out that everything ran smoothly. Staff were very efficient at all times from reception, cleaning, animators, bar and waiting staff. The hotel has two lifts for guests to use and these were reliable. Meals are of the buffet variety. Food was quite good although we were slightly disap...Read More
