Argassi holidays 2020
Argassi is a tranquil little resort on the island of Zante (also known as Zakynthos), handily located just 3 kilometres south of the elegant capital of Zante Town. The town is strung out along a long, narrow beach, lapped by crystal-clear waters, and dotted with parasols and beach cafés. There are plenty of restaurants and bars, mini-golf and turtle-spotting trips for the kids, and a 10-minute taxi ride will bring you to the bright lights of Zante Town or Laganas if you’re looking for some serious nightlife. Inland, the densely forested hills are dotted with traditional villages, and are ideal for hiking and exploring.

Your guide to Argassi holidays
Sleepy little Argassi is a delightfully relaxing Greek resort, where life revolves around the beach and village life. You’ll get a fantastic tan on the beach, and you can enjoy snorkelling and diving in the translucent waters. In the evenings, the atmosphere heats up a notch or two, as the lively restaurants and tavernas open their doors, followed by the bars and pubs. There’s plenty to keep all the family happy if you’re looking for fun in the sun, and charming Zante Town is just a 10-minute drive away if you want a bit of excitement. And, if you prefer to get away from it all, head inland for some gorgeous hikes through the mountain scenery.
Argassi’s beach is long and narrow, stretching for a kilometre or so along the coastline. The water is stunningly clear, making it ideal for snorkelling and diving. (You’ll find diving centres that rent equipment and run courses in nearby Laganas.) The beach is popular with families who have young children because the beach slopes gently and the waters are calm and shallow. There are plenty of amenities, such as sun lounger and parasol rental, and you’ll find a host of bars and cafés within a short walk. Shuttles run regularly to nearby Agios Nikolaos beach, near Vassillikos, which is considered one of the most beautiful on the island, and has sun loungers for rent and a beach bar. If you want to see the endangered loggerhead turtles for which Zante is famous, head to gorgeous Kalamaki Beach, about 10 minutes away by car.
