Ship Wreck Cove on Zakynthos in Greece

The island of Zakynthos in Greece, or Zante as it affectionately known and easier to spell, is found west of the Peloponnese in the Ionian Sea. Whilst full of pre packaged tourists and considered a well oiled money making machine, Zante is home to some of the warmest and friendliest Greeks I have had the opportunity to meet anywhere in the world. The island is dotted with traditional villages, rustic landscapes and near perfect turquoise waters thanks to the local limestone deposits. I found myself in Zante visiting family and was using the island as a jumping off point for my planned visit to Athens, and unknown to me, to meet my now wife. Often Zante is overlooked for the likes of the iconic islands of Santorini and Mykonos, however if you’re prepared to head west you will be rewarded with a more relaxed pace, warm hospitality and the opportunity to see a different side of Greece.
