The northern region is known for its mountainous terrain, while the south and east are characterized by flatlands and rolling hills. The highest peak on the island is Mount Skopos, which rises to an elevation of 906 meters.

The climate of Zakynthos is Mediterranean, with hot and dry summers and mild winters. The island is known for its beautiful beaches, which are made up of white, golden and red sand. The most famous beach is Navagio Beach, which is located on the northwest side of the island.

During the Hellenistic period, the island was ruled by the Romans. In the Middle Ages, it was occupied by the Venetians, and later the Ottomans. During World War II, the island was occupied by the Germans, and then liberated by the British.
