Distance from Laganas: 1 Hour by Car for the view or more by boat for the beach
Tickets: None Needed for the View - 25-50 euros for the boat
Why Shipwreck Beach?
There's a reason this was on the cover of Red Bull magazine, about 1000 postcards and has been viewed on YouTube over 1,000,000 times! It's amazing! The view from the top which can be reached by car is simply breathtaking and if you can reach it by boat (it depends on the sea conditions) the beach is awesome too!
It's perfect for a day out and offers something that Malia, Kavos, Ibiza Magaluf etc could only wish to have! Make sure totry to visit once during your time in Zante - it's well worth it. A boat may be more your style if you're hanging and can't drive - and avoid qudbiking if possible as it takes a little longer - and definitely don't even try if it's two of you to one quadbike!!
Rum & Raybans Boat Party
Number of tickets released: 480 per week (sells out weeks in advance)
Tickets: Exclusively on
Why Rum & Raybans?
A Giant. Rum & Raybans is the stand out event off the main strip in Zante. It is Europe's best boat party and quite simply a mad mix of dancers, stiltwalkers, celebs, special guests, DJ's, magicians and of course 480 ticket holders who have usually managed to get their tickets weeks, or months in advance.
On occasion they'll even be two boats, side by side with competing DJ's & music blaring out over the sea at sunset - when it becomes Europe's (and possibly the worlds??) biggest boat party! Don't miss this in Zante. Eat your heart out Malia, Kavos & Co!
Prev guests include Tom Zanetti, Raye & more!
Best times to go: June or September when it's hot but not too busy
Water: Ridiculously amazing
Why Porto Limnionas?
Simply a must if you fancy getting off the typical tourist track for the day during your holiday. Not too many know about this gem so it doesn't get too busy until the peak summer months - but as it's quite small June & September really are the best time to go if you want to come close to having this amazing swimming area to yourselves.
Take out a quad, car or moped and take a few hours out when you're sober and chill here before getting a drink or at the local bar before heading back to Laganas. Sorry Malia!
Hosted by: Zeros Club
Why Total Karnage?
It's Europe's biggest bar crawl/RACE!
Every Sunday the strip turns orange and hundreds of crazy people begin the weekly charge around 6-10 different bars to win the ultimate prize - The first 50 to return to Zeros after collecting their stamps will be in with a shot. Karnage has also been in Kavos on a smaller scale but Zante continues to be by far the largest destination for this amazing event. Do it! Safe to say it's not available in Malia, Ibiza, Magaluf etc!
Explain: Over 100 Bars & Clubs within a single Mile, Choose from Zeros, Fishbowl, Rescue, Republic, G Spot & tons more! - Amazing events like Total Karnage & Rum & Raybans Boat Party which you can't get anywhere else plus all the events you can! Paint, Foam, Silly String, Rain, Pool etc!
Zante's act line up has been fantastic as well in past years with Tinie Tempah, Duke Dumont, Tom Zanetti, Pro Green, Sigma, Example, Chase n Status, Gorgon City, Craig David, Wretch 32, Sigala & tons more performing and 2018's is no different with places like Zeros, Pure, Rum & Raybans Boat Party, The White Party & more bringing in the biggest and best names!!
Nightlife aside you've got amazing sights like Shipwreck beach, solid beaches in Laganas the main 18-30 destination, quality restaurants and breakfast bars to cure hangovers and of course souvineer shops to make it look like you had a lovely time sightseeing when you see your parents after you get back! Perfect!
Bring on Zante 2018! Sorry if you're going anywhere else!! Just take a look at Cameo Island below which would have been no 6!
