Argassi Resort

Resorts in Zante


Getting to Argassi:

Argassi was the first location on Zante to be developed as a holiday resort, mainly because it's close to the Airport and Zante Town. It also had decent road access at a time when places like Kalamaki had virtually no road network. Argassi is only 6 km and 10 minutes away from the Airport and the taxi fare is 16 euros. Until recently Argassi was experiencing a sharp decline in visitors from the UK which badly affected local businesses, but now the situation is improving particularly with the building of the new Jet2 Semes Hotel, so if you are thinking about sharing a taxi you're sure to find quite a few people on your flight heading in the same direction.

New things in Argassi for 2018:

The new for 2018 Jet2 Semes Hotel is the main new thing in Argassi this year.

Semes hotel front entrance

Not much effort put into making the main entrance attractive but it is on the busy Vassilikos main road opposite the Silk Oil petrol station so not much of a view either.

Semes hotel rear entrance

It's not much better looking round the back either. The car park is still 'under construction' even though the hotel is open for business. That's Timotheos Studios on the right and Athina Studios on the left.

Some rooms have a bit of a view but the sea is in the opposite direction.

Argassi Summary:

Argassi combines some of the best features of the other resorts. It has a good variety of bars, restaurants and shops, making it appealing to people of all ages. It's a good choice for parents with teenage kids. The main centre of town is compact giving it a lively atmosphere. Outside the town centre it's much quieter. Nightlife falls somewhere in between Laganas and the other resorts, with enough going on to keep most people happy. It's within walking distance of Zante Town if you fancy a change of scene. Travel in the opposite direction and you will find the best beaches on the island like Bannana, Gerakas and Dafni.

Argassi BeachOften criticised, mainly because in many places there is no beach! At least the water is shallow with a sandy bottom making it good for bathing.
Kalamaki Beach  (209 Comments)
Kalamaki BeachProbably the best place to actually see a turtle. Just wade about in the shallow water and if they are about you will soon spot one.
Kaminia BeachA beautiful location and not over commercialised. It's a perfect stop-off place and within walking distance of Argassi if you're feeling fit!
