It is very close to Kefalonia and has a population of about 40 thousand inhabitants. The economy of Zakynthos is mainly based on tourism. However, it also has quite significant agricultural production as the island grows olives, citrus fruits, raisins, and various floricultural products. Zakynthos also has about 20,000 acres of vineyards producing more than 60 varieties of grapes, so don’t miss the opportunity to visit the island’s historic wineries. It is also essential to rent a car at Zakynthos Airport in order to be able to travel easily.
The star and attraction of the island are undoubtedly the famous Caretta caretta turtles that come every year from the North Adriatic and the Gulf of Libya up here to lay their eggs on the beaches of the island and mainly in Sekania east of Laganas. Because of them, there is the first National Marine Park of Greece at Zakynthos. Many of the island’s shores are also considered protected sites of the Natura 2000 network.
