The first thing you see on arrival at this beach are the scenic coloured cliffs surrounding the sand (see pics). The sea is calm, quite shallow for a long way out so good for families and the water is clear. In the summer you are...More

One of the, if not the best beach on zakynthos. During some parts of the year the back part of the beach is not accesible, nor is it at night due to turtles laying eggs and hatching. The water is always warm, transparent/clear and its...More

Good parking. Nice beach. You have to pay for your beach chair rental. Titles come to nest here., so the beach closes at 8 ish.pm. Stairs are an obstacle which may make access to the beach difficult.

A nice beach if you are mobile as the path down to it is rough, the sea is shallow up to about 400 meters out , nice sand , better if you walk up a few minutes .

A pretty beach and very long but quite a way from the car park and bars and cafes and toilets. Gently sloping so good for children’s swimming. Restricted area at the back of the beach for the turtle nests. Beds available to hire.

Gerakas is a great beach with some very good taverns nearby. It's a protected area with turtle nests all over the place, so don't enter the roped off area! The far end of the beach is often occupied by nudists, so don't go too far...More
