Zakynthos

Zakynthos, commonly known as Zante, might have a reputation as a party island, but scratch beneath the surface and you’ll find one of the Mediterranean’s most beautiful islands. Beyond the holiday-makers crowding the island’s south-eastern coast you’ll find a diverse group people soaking up the slow-paced, relaxed atmosphere. From divers to artists and winemakers making the most of the Greek island’s quieter interior, we headed out to meet a few of the locals and find out what attracts them to island life.
