The plurality in terms of fauna and tonalities is the registered trademark underwater.
Zakynthos diving is a very popular activity, as the island offers many interesting diving sites around the coastline. Zakynthos diving centers are found in many seaside villages, particularly in the tourist places like Laganas, Tsilivi, Alykanas, Argassi, Limni Keriou and Vassilikos.
