Zakynthos Gay Guide

A guide to help you find the best hotels & places in Zakynthos for Gay travellers


Gay Zakynthos Travel Guide 2019 | A Paradise for Every Gay Nudist!

Gay Zakynthos is not about clubbing, Gay Zakynthos is about exploring, relaxing and, of course, swimming. Zakynthos is one of the most beautiful islands in Greece, especially known for its golden-sand beaches, and picturesque villages. The gay acceptance on the island is at very high levels, and a great percent of its annual visitors are gay.

Zakynthos, also known as Zante doesn't have any local gay community, actually, the population of Zakynthos is very little, just like in most of the Greek islands, with a few exceptions. The best period to visit Zante is naturally summer since we are talking about a Mediterranean island, with its main attraction being its beaches.

So if you are excited about Zakynthos, you can check out our incredible Hotel Collections and prepare yourself for unforgettable vacations!

Greeks love Zakynthos and many visit the island for summer vacations, however, many foreign travelers seem to include Zakynthos in their Greek Mediterranean holidays as well.

There is not an organized gay scene in Zakynthos, however, it's pretty well hidden and only available during the summer months. Hotlips Karaoke Showbar Zante is the only gay bar in Zakynthos, attracting most of the island's gay visitors. Nevertheless, all the bars and clubs of Zakynthos are gay-friendly, so you will meet fellow gay men even in the most unexpected places.

If you are looking for a reason to visit Zakynthos, your best bet will be the beaches. The island is blessed with so many wonderful beaches, most of which featuring golden sand and crystal-clear waters. A good array of those beaches are nudist, so this is why Zakynthos is considered a paradise for nudist travelers. There is also a gay nudist beach, called Vrontonero Beach, that is particularly beloved by gay travelers.

Zakynthos does not feature any gay-only hotels, however, it attracts many gay travelers, so it could not but be the home to several gay-friendly hotels and beach resorts!

Zakynthos might not feature many gay bars, however, there are a couple of gay hotspots around the island, including a cozy gay bar and a nice gay beach that you should not miss. Moreover, the majority of the bars and beach bars of Zakynthos are gay-friendly, so you will find other gay men even in the most unexpected places!

Gay Tips
