Rooftop bar Zakynthos

Rooftop-grade: 6/10

Prime season: May-September

Which is the best rooftop bar Zakynthos? This complete guide will help you find the all the top rooftop bars in Zakynthos. The third largest of the Ionian Islands, located about 20 km from mainland Greece. As you would expect with a charming island, the Zakynthos buildings are not sky high. But then you only need to get a few floors up to enjoy panoramic ocean views.

Most of the Zante rooftop bars can be found in Zakynthos Town, and while the climate is pleasant year-round, the winters can be quite rainy. So the prime rooftop (and tourist) season is from about May to end of September.
