Ever since we headed for Greece we knew we couldn't miss an island, our only doubt was which one to choose among 6,000. But it was just to say that we were on our way to rain messages from the best followers in the world with all the suggestions. We chose Zakynthos for pictures, something told us that this island was what we needed! And didn't we get it right? We went on the Internet to see the values of the ferry and for the two plus Pingu was around 90 eur. It seemed an acceptable price to us, but from our experience so far, at the box office it's always cheaper. We went to Kyllini, from where the ferries leave for Zakynthos. We went to the box office and to our surprise the total was 48 eur. What? Imagine the difference! So we bought the next boat at 9pm and the trip lasted 1h30. We left in Zakynthos (capital of the island) and as it was already late we decided to look for a Park4night right there. We settled in and started planning our days. We had read that the most paradisiacal beaches were in the north zone, so we wanted to take advantage of the fact that it was a week to discover that zone, so it was certainly less crowded. We left towards Xigia Beach, a beach with medicinal waters, you can tell by the smell of sulphur. We were told that on the way down to the beach there is a path on the left (very bumpy between dirt, rocks, steep descents...) that takes us to a quieter and more paradisiacal beach. So we did, and as soon as we saw the beach from above, we were sure that was where we would go. (The only drawback of this beach is the amount of tourist boats that stop there for the guys to go for baths. If not, it would be perfect).
The island is "van friendly", so it is allowed to stay overnight anywhere without any problems. We consulted our App Park4night and found a super cute spot just a few miles from there. We barely knew it would be our landing for two wonderful days. We arrived at the Port of Agios Nikolaos at sunset and soon fell in love with it. What a beautiful place, it looked like it was taken from a movie. The boats seemed to levitate in the transparent water, a small quiet sand with a beautiful tree and a swing hanging. And that house? Well, that house fit there like a glove and it seemed like the perfect place for us to stay. There we made beach, dived, swam in the sea to the sailboats that beautified the port.
