With a coastline famous for its azure waters, it is no surprise that watersports, scuba diving and snorkelling feature heavily. Of most appeal, however, is discovering the white cliffs and turquoise sea caves of Zakynthos by private yacht. The focal point has to be the shipwreck in Navagio Bay. The location also affords easy access to the surrounding beautiful islands - visit neighbouring Kefalonia just 40 minutes away. End the day dining on the terrace of your private villa overlooking the Ionian Sea.
