Travel | Zakynthos

Tuesday, 26 August 2014

I travelled to Zakynthos at the beginning of the month, more known as Zante, which if you've heard of it before which you probably have, you must think its related to Laganas the party town, but no. This was my forth time on the island, strictly a relaxing, family holiday. Truth is we just love it, it's an incredibly beautiful island with lots to see, the first two years were packed full of sight seeing, basically seeing everything the island has to offer, ranging from the shipwreck to the night lit harbour, there's plenty to see. But then the last two years is just relaxing by the ocean and eating lots of amazing greek salads and meats, you get where I'm going with this. Now I don't want this post to seem like I'm selling you it but it is really beautiful and definitely worth checking out if your looking for a holiday guaranteeing the hot sun in the summer months.

First year I stayed in Katerina Palace which isn't a palace it's apartments with the occasional breakfast, but for the past three years we've stayed in Hotel Meridian which is nothing fancy, it's self catering, we do however have a passion for dining in several restaurants. This year however we had the best apartment in the hotel because we have the most amazing sea view, which honestly is the most beautiful aspect of waking up on an island like this, I couldn't believe it when I woke up in rainy, London starring out of my window on a busy, bustling street, it just cannot be compared. Before I finish this piece of writing because I can feel myself getting really into it, I just want to speak on some of the restaurants, because being in the town of Argassi for four years means that I have tried practically every single restaurant multiple times.
Athina - Amazing Food
Pretty location, with beautiful pink flowers and water wall
Zorba - Really good food, plenty of especially, small restaurant so your quite cramped, beautiful waiter named Dennis (just a pointer), and make sure you book in advance otherwise you wont get a table.
Legends - Typical English restaurant bar. Only eaten breakfast, good cheap fry ups and taste good. Strong WIFI. Two for £5 cocktails. Last but not least interesting entertainment, I've watched Michael Jackson, Elvis Presley and Bob Marley.
Piccadilly - I had a bad experience with some raw pork but it always looks bustling so worth a try.
