Hire a car in Zakynthos

One of Greece's most popular tourist islands, Zakynthos is the model Mediterranean escape.

Its waters are every hue of blue you can imagine and its beaches are some of the most inviting. Laganas is the island's famous resort and party zone.

If you've come with the family or are just looking for a peaceful beach, head to the northern or western regions of the Ionian island, where you will find a more mountainous terrain. Break free from prepackaged resorts and rent a car with easyCar to explore Zakynthos' unspoilt corners.

Car hire knowledge

Drive to destinations: caves and coves

On the western side of the island is where you will find the island's (and one of Greece's) most photographed spots – Shipwreck Cove, also known as Navagio Beach. Its turquoise waters, white sand and sheer cliffs are a spectacular site. The best view of the beach however, is from above, on top of the cliffs.

In order to reach the viewpoint, you will need a car, as the closest public transport only stops at the town of Anafonitria, 5 km away. Once there, follow the little path around the cliff to admire the views.

The Blue Caves are another hotspot. These geological formations owe their name and beauty to the reflective blue water inside them.
