This beautiful Ionian island is also known as Zante. With clear blue waters, friendly residents, and organic wine and olive oil, it also harbours a major turtle nesting project.
For your week long beach break, we’ll be staying in Tsilivi. Our hotel lies just 50 metres from the beautiful Blue Flag beach and crystal clear waters. Here you’ll find sun loungers to hire, water-sports, and beach bars aplenty.
Veganism hadn't really reached Zakynthos, so Kindred Traveller has taken it to them. We've worked with local restaurants to create large and varied vegan menus that are true to Greek flavours, specifically for our groups. We're sure you'll love them!
• 7 nights accommodation in a double/twin room for sole use
• Breakfast each day
• 5 vegan evening meals (with drink) with the group - we've ensured plenty of choice on our specially created menu, with starters, mains, and desserts
• A host on hand during the group dinner/drinks, and happy to help around the clock with advice on transport, tours, and things to do.
• Return transfers from/to Zakynthos airport (approx 20 mins)
Rated 4 out of 5 on Trip Advisor, our accommodation is just 50 metres from the beach.

Like many hotels in Greece, the accommodation is simple, but clean.

Seeing stray or unwell animals when on holiday can be challenging. At Kindred Traveller, we believe that knowing there are local organisations working to better animal welfare can help you rest a little easier. Even more so if you know how to help.
We've made connections with local animal rescues and welfare charities at our destinations. Below you can find links to details on what they're doing in the area, and what you can do to help if you so wish.
Sea Turtle Protection Society of Greece (Archelon) are very active on the island, due to Zakynthos being a prime turtle nesting site. They are always looking for volunteers, and are happy to come and provide Kindred Travellers with a talk about what they do (which we’d be happy to arrange).
