The island of Zakinthos (Zande)
Zakinthos or Zande is known because of its long sandy beaches and the Blue Caves (see picture). But also the shipwreck at the North-West coast of the island is very known. In the center of the island there is a firtile plane area where one can go biking. The people on the island are very friendly and helpful! Many Europeans aspecially Dutchmen like this place very much. There is an international airport on the island. There is also a connection by boat to the mainland and Cephalonia.
The latter connection leaves from the most Northern point of the island. Starting this summer they plan to have a boat from the capital. Zakinthos also has sea turtles. Don't miss the socalled 'cantades'. The cook sings and his collegues accompany him on their banjo. This is really something you have to experience yourself!
