A far as holiday resorts go, Aghios Sostis is one of Zante’s shrinking violets. It’s only 11 kilometres south west of Zante Town, but it’s not as well known as Kalamaki and Laganas, which means it’s pretty peaceful in comparison.
The beach here is something to write home about. This long strip of sand is not only easy on the eye, but it’s family friendly, too. The clear, shallow waters mean little ones can splash to their heart’s content. When you’re tired of tanning, Aghios Sostis has its own uninhabited islet to explore. You can access Marathonisi Island via a rustic wooden bridge. Once you’re there, there are dinky coves to discover. If you’re lucky, you might even spot the loggerhead turtles, which come onto the islet’s beaches to nest.
You’ll have your pick of traditional restaurants when you stay in Aghios Sostis. The tavernas, located a short walk from the beach, serve tasty Greek favourites like mezes made up of juicy olives and feta cheese, and real comfort food like stifado, or beef stew. Add a glass of the local tipple, ouzo, and gorgeous sunsets and you’ve got everything you need for an authentic Greek break. Here, life’s all about the simple things.
