What to do in Vassilikos

There is little nightlife in the resort of Vassilikos, but if you choose to take a holiday here your opting for a quiet relaxing beach holiday within a traditional Greek fishing resort.  That's not to say that there aren't any bars in this resort, on the contrary there are a few wonderful little Tavernas and bars where the owners will make you feel right at home.  

The first place you have to visit is Logos bar where you will meet the rather eccentric owner Kostas who will keep you entertained most of the night.  Another popular bar with visitors to the resort is Calypso bar, where the drinks run freely and the prices are quite cheap.

There are plenty of tradition family run Tavernas in Vassilikos and we recommend you try as many as possible, offering great Greek dishes and freshly caught fish dishes.  The restaurants on the seafront are by far the most popular due to the stunning views where you can watch the sunset over the sea.

The food in the restaurants all comes at very reasonable prices and food is some of the best you will find on the island of Zante, our recommended dishes have to be homemade Mousakka and the belly of pork.

The coach transfer from Zante airport takes about 90 minutes, but if you want to reach your hotel faster its recommended hiring a taxi or even having a hire car ready for you at the airport.

Vassilikos - Travel Guide

Vassilikos is about 90 minutes drive from the capital of Zante Town, and sits on the slopes of the Skopos hills, with lovely beaches and one which has now become the first nudist beach in Zante.  Vassilikos is the perfect holiday destination to get away from the hustle and bustle of daily life.  This is a family and couple orientated resort and still retains the charm and hospitable welcome of a Greek village.

A mountainous area you are best to hire a car to make the best of this area and get to see some stunning views.  The region's best sands are found around Vassilikos, including Banana and Porto Zorro beaches.  

Vassilikos is a very Greek village. Still very traditional with working farms and olive groves, keeping up its rural atmosphere and popular with those wanting to escape the tourist side of Zante. The place is not remote and cut off though, it caters for the tourist well, with mini markets and a few bars and Tavernas.  

The beaches of Vassilikos are well worth a visit, with watersports centres on two of the best beaches and scuba diving available in the area.  

Not content on sitting on a beach all day? Then take leisurely walks through the winding country roads and pine forests. Vassilikos is the perfect way to wind down and relax on holiday.
