Zakynthos has some of the most magical sunsets I have ever seen. And to catch them, I head up to the top of the island and watch the sun paint the horizon every colour of the rainbow over an authentic family-cooked meal in a traditional greek restaurant. On one side I have a perfect view of the bay, and on the other – a valley full of olive trees bathing in golden sunshine. This is one of the most quintessentially mediterranean spots: relaxing, beautiful and timeless.
Zakynthos Travel Guide
For me Zakynthos is the home of sun-drenched sulphurous volcanic cliffs, stunning rocky beaches and olive groves stretching out as far as the eye can see. I made every attempt to avoid the British holiday scene on the island and seek out all the deserted picturesque spots, hidden gems loved by the locals.
