Port of Zakynthos

Zakynthos, also known as Zante, is a popular Greek beach destination in the Ionian Sea. Resorts line the southern coast, and you'll find rugged sea cliffs along the island's western coast. No matter which beach you choose -- and there are dozens of 'em -- you'll find heavenly azure waters.

Zakynthos cruises typically host shore excursions to beaches, sea cliffs and the island's oft-photographed Blue Caves. A nearby sandy cove framed by cliffs on Navagio (meaning shipwreck) Beach is the location of said 1980 shipwreck. In town, explore museums, dine in a Greek grill house and take in spectacular Venetian architecture.
