Argassi, Zakynthos Island

Argassi is a very lively tourist resort, very popular and usually crowded, situated at a distance of 4 kilometers southeastern to the town of Zakynthos. It counts some 570 permanent residents.

There are several interesting places to see in the area around, as the medieval tower, the stone bridge by the sea, very well preserved, the ruins of the old church of Aghios Spyridon situated just off the village and the Catholicon of the now ruined Holy Monastery of Panaghia Scopiotissa (“Holy Virgin of Scopos”) built almost at the top of mountain Scopos, at the place where in antiquity was situated the temple of Artemis (Diana). The interior of the church is decorated with nice frescoes and a marble carved icon screen. And of course, apart from the monuments, once at Scopos, you will enjoy the excellent view and take lots of wonderful photos.

The village is also the seat of the Marine Park of Zakynthos.

Numerous hotels, studios and rooms to let are available for accommodation in the resort and in the area around; they are open from May to October.

Several taverns and restaurants offer good food, mainly fresh fish, but also a wide range of local dishes and Greek and International cooking. Even the fast foods of the village offer good and healthy food. You will also find many bars, cafes pubs with hot music, usually full of tourists. And, of course you will find many stores and gift shops to buy your souvenirs.

You will enjoy the sea and the sun at the well-organised beach, where you will also find sea sport facilities. The beach is not very wide, but it is long enough (some 1 kilometer). Children will love the place, as, apart from the wonderful sea, they will also spend their time in the mini golf, the Fun Castle, as well as the small but interesting zoo with an impressive collection of reptiles and exotic fishes.

Those who prefer a more peaceful and less crowded place for swimming, will not be disappointed: some of the small coves are quiet enough for them.

In case of health problems you may address to the Health Services of the nearby town of Zakynthos (some 4 kilometers far away).

Access from the town of Zakynthos is possible by public buses, running frequently, by taxi, as well as by rented or private car and motorbikes. You will need some 5 minutes to arrive to Argassi from the town of Zakynthos and less than 15 minutes from the airport.
