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 rent 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 hired for a half-day or a full-day 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.

Trips can be booked in both the London office and in Greece whilst the club is open.

The Monastery Dinner

Explore the beautiful serenity of Zakynthos as you walk through the hills before sitting down to dinner by the old monastery ruins, overlooking the sea.

THE MONASTERY DINNER

Departing the club at around 6pm, we take you up in our fleet of Land Rovers and drop you off at the starting point. Our guide then leads you through wild untouched terrain before you arrive at the old monastery ruins overlooking the sea. Drinks, canapés and dinner are then served under the stars.

The Monastery Dinner is for over 16s only, but we’ll look after your over 4s at the club, free of charge and those with under 3s can arrange babysitting at the club.

Subject to availability. Children 3 & over can be looked after at the club free of charge.

 

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 through the guest hub.

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.
