Argasi Zante

If you want to be near town without being in it, Argassi is the right spot. There is a long thin sandy beach, with lots of water sports on offer, but if you want beaches for soaking up the sun, there are plenty within easy reach. There is plenty of night life with bars and discos as well as tavernas and international restaurants. The capital, Zante Town, is only 5 minutes away by.
