My family and I flew from Manchester airport for 3 and a half hours to Zante, which is renowned for it's amazingly wild night/party life down in the resort of Laganas. Having being fully aware of this, we chose a quieter village called Argassi which is further away from the party resort. This village was beautiful, set right on the coast of Zakynthos and had a very authentic Greek feel to it, which I adored. I fell in love with the place instantly, it had everything. Amazing weather, crystal clear seas, stunning views and beautiful people.
|This is the capital of Zante called Zakynthos or Zante Town. It was so pretty.|
|Travelling around the island was beautiful|
We wanted to see more and more of this incredible island, so we hopped onto this huge boat and traveled around the island to the Blue Caves that surrounded the island, and to Shipwreck Cove. To me, they all sounded like magical places from Pirates of the Caribbean or something but I never thought they'd be so spectacular!!
On the way to the caves and beach was just was beautiful.
There were lots of yachts already there, everything looked expensive, beautiful and flawless.
They were beyond beautiful, especially Shipwreck Cove. I was honestly speechless as we pulled up onto this little white beach surrounded by magnificent white cliffs that towered above. The sea was freezing but so clear I couldn't even make out how deep it was. The beach was made up of tiny (although extremely painful to walk on) pebbles and right in the middle was this giant, rusting skeleton of a ship, hence its name. At the time there were lots of people there, and all I could do was sit back and just soak up the incredible views.
|Although its poor quality, this is a panoramic shot of the cove from were I was sat. We were surrounded by these huge cliffs and the shipwreck was the center of it all.|
It was a beautiful trip and Greece is now one of my favorite places in the world, I could so easily see myself living there when I'm older, driving around on a scooter with a gorgeous Greek boy. I cannot wait to hopefully go back in the future, or even visit some of the other beautiful islands in Greece.
