Enjoy a traditional meal or fine dining experience in the busy resort of Argasi, 5 minutes' drive away.

A fantastic mix of modern and traditional cuisine will ensure everyone's tastes are satisfied.

Location features

Local markets and shopping

The nearby resort of Argasi offers a selection of shops to browse in - perfect for indulging in a bit of retail therapy. Zante Town, only 3 miles away, has a wide selection of shops to suit all tastes, from jewellery and clothes, to gifts and souvenirs. Further afield, take the 1 hour drive into the mountains and explore the craft village of Volimes. The village stalls sell an eclectic mix of local crafts and souvenirs, wonderful herbs and honey, all produced in Zante. The nearest supermarket is 10 minutes' drive away on the outskirts of Zante Town.

Bars and restaurants

Xirocastelo is a fantastic base from which to explore the full range of dining experiences Zante has to offer. There has been an influx in recent years of fine dining restaurants flourishing in and around the nearby resort of Argasi, many of which offer spectacular sea views. Zante has a great choice of more traditional tavernas, especially as you venture further south along the scenic Vasilikos Peninsula or further north, into Zante Town. Continue your evening in one of the many bars, either in the resort of Argasi or nearby Zante Town, sipping cocktails well into the night!


The nearest beach being the Argasi Beach itself, just 5 minutes' drive away. This narrow strip of sand has calm, clear waters, ideal for families. Xirocastelo is the doorway to the Vasilikos Peninsula - the peninsula is famous for its sandy beaches backed by pine forests. Follow the coastal road through shady pine forests as it weaves its way to the very tip of the south-east peninsula 30 minutes' drive away. Along the way, pass the more traditional beaches of Kaminia, Porto Zorro, Dafni and Porto Roma before arriving at the final beach, Gerakas. Gerakas and Dafni beaches are nesting sites for the protected Loggerhead Turtles and remain unspoilt and natural. Banana Beach and St Nicholas Beach, both within 20 minutes' drive, offer a more modern vibe with trendy beach bars and a wealth of watersports.

Family fun

A tourist train links Argasi with Zante Town along the coastal road, showcasing the sites along the way and terminating at Solomos Square, the main square in Zante Town. The 'Water Village' water park in Sarakinado is under 30 minutes car or taxi drive away and offers fun for all age groups, from adrenaline packed slides to the more relaxing 'lagoon pool' and 'lazy river'. The 'Water Village' also has a jungle themed play area for younger children with water fountains and smaller slides. For even more excitement, watersports are plentiful in the surrounding beaches.

Places of interest

Zante is famous for the picturesque Shipwreck Bay which has fantastic photo opportunities from the viewpoint overlooking the beach, an hour's drive away. Or perhaps you would rather drive to Porto Vromi and take a boat into the bay itself to see the shipwreck up close. Bocchali, on the hill overlooking Zante Town, is a beautiful place to visit. Sit in one of the cafes with a cool drink or ice-cream whilst enjoying the view over the town and across to the Greek Mainland. Wander up to the ruins of the Venetian Castle, and in the evening watch, while drinking a cocktail, as the lights of the town start to twinkle below as the town comes to life.


Zante has no golf courses however in Argasi there are two mini golf courses - 'World Tour Mini Golf' and 'Fantasy Mini Golf' - both firm favourites with families and couples alike.

Activities and things to do
Shipwreck Beach
The stunning Navagio Beach and shipwreck is undoubtedly the icon of Zante. The only way of setting foot on its shores is by boat, but can also capture the picture-perfect shot from a viewpoint in the north of the island.

Turtle Spotting Cruise
Zante is home to the Caretta caretta loggerhead turtle, an endangered and protected species who nest on the beaches here. There are many boat excursions on offer to catch a glimpse of these beautiful sea creatures, in their natural environment. Your best chance is in July and August.

Blue Caves Cruise
Natural geological formations, have led to the creation of many caves along the coast of Zante. Some can be explored by boat and others by swimming alone. The reflection of the sun on the turquoise waters, within these magical caverns, gives the caves their name. A wonderful experience not to be missed.

Keri Lighthouse
Watching the sunset at Keri Lighthouse is a must – the views are just stunning. It’s a beautiful spot, so peaceful that you can hear a pin drop and is definitely one for the romantics!

Olive Press Museum
Discover the history of olive oil at the Aristeon Ecological Olive Press Museum, in Lithakia. As you tour through the factory, you will learn about the manufacturing process as well as having the opportunity to sample the delicious olives, oils and products.
