Visit Greece: Zakynthos Island

(GREEK NEWS AGENDA)   Zakynthos (also known as Zante), the third largest of the Ionian Islands, boasts emerald beaches, mountains full of pine trees, caves, traditional architecture, and inhabitants with a particularly hospitable spirit. The area of Laganas Bay is renowned for its small sandy beaches, considered to be the most important nesting sites for the Mediterranean green loggerhead turtle – Caretta caretta – both in Greece and perhaps the entire Mediterranean region. The Zakynthos National Marine Park, the first of its kind in Greece, encompasses Laganas Bay and the islets of Marathonissi and Pelouzo, and promotes sustainable development in the area.
