We visited this an the lagonas fun train (highly recommended). We were given a very detailed and interesting explanation of the whole process by a very knowledgeable guide.
This was followed by sampling the olive oils and olives.
Nearly everyone on the trip left with a purchase, this speaks for itself.

5 dives at Nero, i've found a very professional team of divemasters and guides. The rented gear is in near new condition, everything is pretty well organized. Each customer has its own personal file where they store dives and gear.
Friendly and relaxed atmosphere at the diving center,with a lovely bar for the customers.
The boat is traditional greek fisherman vessel converted to an efficient diver support.
4 out of 5 stars as the spots i explored were not as good as i expected. Nice scenery, not as many fish as i hoped for. found better spots in other part of the southern mediterranean.
maybe i was just unlucky, and definitely not Nero's people fault.
definitely would go there again. super safe and super staff.

Looks like home we call our secret garden very relaxing and welcoming atmosphare
What a wonderful couple and our favourite place to be. Fab views, drinks, in heavenly surroundings! Nibbles provided with the drinks too
Free sun-beds without pressure to buy lots of drinks. Didn’t try toasties but had ice creams.
Walk out onto the beautiful decking and down to the beach where you can walk out far and actually get shallower as you go after the first small dip.
Really can’t do this place justice in words you just have to go there, and be like us and never want to leave.
Good place for a wedding if anyone is looking for a venue!

This relatively modern church with it's separate bell tower is positioned opposite to the entrance to the port. The exterior is stylish but relatively plain and belies what lies within. The interior is truly magnificent; having painted walls and ceiling, akin to the Cistine Chapel. The scenes depict various stages of Christ's life and that of the apostles.
Simple but colourful stained glass windows, spread their light across the floor and huge chandeliers hang from the ceiling. It is unfortunate that the church wasn't lit up when we visited, as it would have shown the interior in it's full magnificence. Natural light only, keeps the interior on the dark side. The remainder of the church is ornately decorated and there are some plush seats at the rear, to spend a few moments of quiet reflection.
At the bottom right hand side, up a couple of steps, lies the even more ornate silver tomb of St. Denis, the island's patron Saint. Above is a fine silver chandelier. His entombed body is taken in procession around the town on his Saint's day, August 24th. Ladies must cover their shoulders and scarves are available for this. Photography is strictly prohibited inside the church. Candles are available at the rear, for a donation, should you wish to light one. There is also a gift shop to one side of the main entrance, selling mostly iconography.

GRAMPSAS ESTATE In a small village, Lagopodo, in Zakynthos, near women monastery of eleftherotria you can visit grampsas estate.You can see a small but traditional winery, you can buy special zakyntian local wines (aygoustiatis, goustolidi), you can buy special olive oil (beata, certo) and you can cook and eat traditional local foods.The farm is open to all.
Yiannis is passionate about his family business, and so he should be! We did a tasting and completely enjoyed every wine we tried. We bought a few bottles - both to take home to Australia and to enjoy while we watched the sunset. Great wines, very affordable too.

We went on a turtle spotting tour with the boat. Great service? Excellent experience! The boat is new, very clean and pleasent. The captain and the lady were both super smily, friendly and sweet. We were about 10-12 people, so everyone could see the turtles trough the super cool glass bottoms and from the boat outside. Highly recommend to everyone. Great value for the price.

An amazing beach with shallow waters surrounded by hills. It's really beautifull here and you can walk out really far without having to worry about swimming. If you go for a charter here, make sure you stay at the beach instead of the pool, it will highten your vacation and you also get to see the view.
Also, the airplanes comes flying over the beach wich is really cool at first. We didn't find it disturbing at all, after a while we hardly even noticed them.

This little island is just beautiful and many people do not know of it's existence until you tell them. Nice way to spend some time away from the crowded Beaches. It contains a little 'beach', and it wasn't too crowded in October. If you are in Zakynthos, this place is really nice to visit!!!

Nice sandy beach with some incredible restaurants and bars. You get pestered a lot by people selling sunbeds. I found it really hard to ignore them and not engage in conversation but this is sometimes the best thing to do. Definitely visit Mambo!

Great location with a pool and bar on the beach front, so best of both worlds. Thomas and Elena one of the nicest couples you will in Argassi. Best kept secret is Elena's toasties for a light snack. Will be visiting them again
