There is a place in Greece that yoga lovers flock for its radiating glow. It is also the same place photographers and newbies alike flock to learn their craft.

Zakynthos is a Greek island in the Ionian Sea and a famed summer resort. The port city of Zakynthos is the capital and major hub spotlighted around waterfront Solomos Square. Zakynthos, popularly known by its Italian name of Zante, is a blend of eventful beaches and silent coves, rough and rocky cliffs, pine timbered hills and lush grasslands in unevenly equal measures.

Zakynthos has popular beaches like Agios Nikolaos, Alykanas, and Tsilivi, which offer swimming and water sports. Accessed by boat, Navagio beach is the site of a well-known 1980 shipwreck sleeping in a sandy cove bordered by cliffs. Zakynthos is thankfully the world away from the profoundly packaged resorts of the eastern and southern shores. The place is just a short walk from the quaint waterfront town of Agios Nikolaos in the northeast.

A white sand beach and some basic cafes along the main stretch of road pretty much makes up Agios Nikolaos, but despite its size, the pretty village is an essential harbor in Zakynthos. Ferryboats transport visitors to the adjacent island of Kephalonia as well as to the Blue Caves around the headland, coined for the deep color of the sea here, says Daily Mail.

There are a lot of activities to do in Zakynthos ranging from sailing, surfing, diving and even kiting. Travelers can also rent cars, bicycle, and tour the picturesque island with cameras ready to take a snap. Zakynthos is also a good place for turtle spotting which on a canoe.

Travelers can stay at the different hotels and accommodations the place offers. Meandros Hotel, Diana Hotel, Porta Del Mar Beach Villas and Sentido Alexandra Beach Resort are just some of the hotels favored by many travelers and vacationers.
