Zakynthos is the third largest island of the Ionian Sea and one of the most "green" islands all over the country. More than 7,5 thousand various kinds of plants grow here , that`s why local honey is considered the best honey in the country.
It`s worth to visit the capital of the island, also called Zakynthos, to see the impressive church of the island`s patron saint, St Dionysios. Other buildings of particular interest in the town are the Byzantine and Post byzantine Museum, the Museum of Solomos and also Municipal Library and Art Gallery.
Perhaps the most notable of the island`s many sights is the Blue Grotto, one of the loveliest cave complexes in Greece. In the Cape Skinari, sea cave, the reflection of the sun`s rays on the water creates stupendous scintillations of blue and sapphirine shades in the depths.
Undoubtedly, the island`s greatest attraction is its incomparable shores with glistening grayish white or golden sand, quaint fishing villages and isolated coves with sparkling sea.
Famous beaches are Kryoneri, Planos-Tsilivi, Kaminia, Porto Zoro, Vasilikos, Porto Roma and Gerakas. The Gulf of Lagana is the major vacation centre of the island. The beach is 9 km long and provided with modern hotels, taverns and restaurants.
