Limni Keriou holidays in the south of Zante are ideal for those who want to spend every minute soaking up the sun. The pebbly shore leads to crystalline, turquoise water that’s so shallow it’s almost like being in a bath. After a day spent swimming and sunbathing, wander to one of the quaint beachfront tavernas to sample fresh seafood and sip ouzo in front of a terracotta sunset.
The village is surrounded by fragrant pine forests and sits at the foot of a hill, which you can climb to reach the picturesque village of Keri. Located a few minutes’ walk away, it’s home to a pretty church and a lighthouse. When you get there, soak up the dazzling views across the Marathias Cape and the verdant islet of Marathonisi, which is famously shaped like a turtle. Holidays to Limni Keriou provide visual treats at every turn.
Learn to dive
With such calm, clear water, Limni Keriou is a great place to learn to scuba-dive. There are two dive centres where you can either have a try or do a course.
Watch a play
Walk up the hill to the main square in the village of Keri where you can watch live street plays called ‘Omilies’, based on traditional Greek folk tales.
Sample local food
The beachfront tavernas serve a mouthwatering array of Greek delicacies and fresh fish – order the ‘spanakopita’ for a taste of traditional Zante cuisine.
