Zante, Zakynthos: party or adventure?

Party island? For some, yes, but there is so much more to Zante – also called Zakynthos.

This beautiful Greek island in the Ionian Sea offers white beaches lapped by turquoise waters. Water sports enthusiasts will be in seventh heaven.

A fascinating coastline of rocky headlands, white cliffs and caves tempts exploration. There’s a fistful of walking guidebooks available offering strolls, walks and more challenging daily hikes.

Whatever you plan to explore, there’s an excellent newly-published island map detailing walking routes and a wealth of detail which will ensure you get the best out of your adventures.

Malta, Gozo (and Comino)

Malta and sister island Gozo offer a wealth of experiences. The climate is kind and there’s plenty of walking adventures to explore.

The islands are rich in history (there are three UNESCO World Heritage Sites), having been inhabited since around 5900 BC.

Many of the powers that ruled the islands, from the Phoenicians to the British, have left their marks, making the islands a living museum.

With its unique flora, architecture and beaches, a visit to either or both islands (25 minutes ferry connection) offers plenty to interest and fascinate.

Discovery Walking Guides have just published their Malta & Gozo Tour & Trail Super-Durable Map, ideal for walkers, bikers, adventurers and visitors. The map is also available for use on some GPS devices; click here for details.
