Excursions, Boat Trips & Local Area

Head out on a little adventure, whether it’s a trip on our vintage yacht Odyssey, or a visit to a local taverna, the stunning blue waters and untouched part of the island near the club are certainly worth a trip.

Our Classic Yacht Odyssey

Guests of The Peligoni Club can charter our classic yacht, Odyssey, for a little adventure upon the Ionian Sea. Drop anchor in idyllic coves and dip into the serene blue waters whilst our skipper and host look after your every need on board.

About Odyssey

A beautiful, bespoke, 55ft wooden Cacique-style yacht built in the Peloponnese in the early 70’s, Odyssey can take a maximum of 10 guests and can be chartered for a half-day or a full-day trip. This is a staple part of the Peligoni experience, lending itself to all manners of trips. Whether a family day out, a romantic proposal or a cruise with friends, Odyssey is equipped to host an unforgettable trip.

Crewed by a fully-qualified skipper and host, Odyssey will take you along the beautiful Zakynthian coastline before dropping anchor for lunch, drinks and some of the best swimming in the Ionian Sea. Throw a couple of paddleboards in to the crystal water and paddle to shore or simply relax on the comfortable beds with an ice cold glass of rosé.

BOOKING AN ODYSSEY TRIP

Please note Odyssey can accommodate up to 10 passengers per trip. All the drinks for the trip are included (within reason!) so that you don’t have to think about spending at sea. Specific drink/food requests are welcomed but may incur an additional charge if we think it’s necessary. Prices are subject to change. To pre-book with the London office, please  give us a call or head over to the Guest Hub.

Trip To Shipwreck Beach & Blue Caves

The Shipwreck Trip is a Peligoni staple not to be missed. After an early start, guests are whisked away by a privately chartered boat, arriving at the world famous Shipwreck Beach well in advance of the tourist crowds. After an hour or so exploring the beach and the shipwreck, the boat then cruises back along the coastline to enter the spectacular Blue Caves. Guests are returned to the club in time for lunch.

ABOUT THE SHIPWRECK

On the north west coast of Zakynthos lies a hidden cove called Navagio Shipwreck bay. Here lies the ruins of freightliner from the 80s, rumoured to have been smuggling hoards of cigarettes, wine and women. After a tumultuous storm, the ship ran aground on the island and has remained in this spot ever since. Enveloped within the jaw-dropping white cliffs and exquisite blue waters, it’s no wonder the the Shipwreck is one of the most photographed attractions in the world.

Guests can reserve a space on our private trip whilst at the club or via this form.

Local Area

You could say that Zakynthos is a tale of two places. In its south you’ll find a plethora of party-goers, sandy beaches and bustling bars, and in the north, where The Peligoni Club resides, you’ll discover a beautifully untainted way of life. With the occasional ring of a goat’s bell, the peaceful ambience up here will make you feel like you’ve time travelled – and you might not want to go home!

WHAT’S WORTH SEEING

Surrounded by azure waters and swathed in glorious Greek heat in the summer months, Zakynthos is the epitome of rustic and idyllic. The pre-summer rainy season adorns the island with lush vegetation and exquisite flora, so be sure to bring your paints or camera if you’re seeking landscapes to capture.

 

Volimes

In the nearby mountain village of Volimes you can buy hand-made lace, bed linen, crocheted bed-spreads, rugs, pottery and honey. Or try an Ouzo with pistachio nuts in one of the tiny bars.

Drive through the pungent pine forests to the beautiful Venetian monasteries of Anafonitria and St.George’s, and next to it, view the famous shipwreck on Navagio Beach from the giddy heights of the cliffs.

In The South

The bustling capital, Zakynthos town, is an hour away. Destroyed by an earthquake in 1953, the elegant Venetian houses, icon rich churches, museums and a magnificent sweeping harbour have all been faithfully restored. It’s surprisingly cosmopolitan and a pleasant place to wander, dine and shop.

At the southern end of the island, there’s Go Karting, horse riding and a water park.

Local Tavernas

There are a few select local tavernas that we’ve known and loved for years. Serving plates of amazing local Greek dishes from hearty homemade moussaka to calamari with tzatziki, these spots are the go-to for fantastic local food.

ADVICE & RECOMMENDATIONS

We’ll happily suggest the best local restaurant to satisfy your craving for Greek specialities. Just head to reception for recommendations and reservations.
