Zante is a wonderful place to go riding, and whether you're a Zara Phillips or a complete beginner you'll love the experience of taking your horse along trails and onto sandy beaches and through crystal blue waters. And don't worry, you'll have an experienced rider with you every step of the way.
Not everyone is into sun, sea and sand, so an exciting alternative is to hire a mountain bike and head for the hills. The best areas are the hills inland from Vassilikos and the central mountain range east of Zakynthos Town.
For watersports, head for St Nikolas beach in Vassilikos. You'll find jet-skis for hire as well as a whole host of novelty watersports such as bananas. Zante is also a great island for scuba diving so you might be able to get close to the loggerhead turtles. Facilities are available in a number of locations.
