Zakynthos, also known as Zante, is the third largest island in the Ionian Sea, the green island of poetry, of song and love, the native land of D. Solomos, the writer of the Greek National Anthem but also that of St. Dennis, the Patron Saint. Rich in beauty and tradition, both historical and cultural, Zakynthos is the ideal destination of any traveler with an exploring mind. The island is named after Zakynthos, the son of a legendary Arcadian chief Dardanus. The name, like all similar names ending in -nthos, is pre-Mycenaean or Pelasgian in origin.

As beams of sunlight flood through the earthen skylight in the caves of Melissani Lake, the illuminated turquoise water beneath your traditional fishing boat appears infinite as you float upon clouds of electric blue.
