A bustling stroll through Strada Marina
It’s always busy here. Early in the morning, fishing boats unload their catch as ferries depart for the port of Kyllini on the coast of the Peloponnese. In the afternoon and evening, locals of all ages enjoy a leisurely stroll, chatting and relaxing after work, or sit at tables sipping coffee or their beverage of choice, as they gaze out to sea or watch the boats coming and going. Strada Marina, as Lomvardou Avenue is called by the locals, is the main coast road of Zakynthos town, stretching from the Church of St.
Dionysios at the southern end of town, as far as Solomos Square and the Church of St. Nicholas of the Mole. On one side of the road you have the protected harbor with its fishing boats and leisure craft, and on the other, seafood tavernas, cafés, restaurants and bars. You can also take a ride in one of the old horse-drawn carriages, explore the narrow side-streets of the town and Kryoneri, the tranquil seafront area at the northern entrance of the town.
