Okay beach, very narrow area open to the public as there are turtle nests all along the beach. Had to walk a long way to find somewhere to sit down as space is at a premium. Patrolled by volunteers to protect the turtles but despite that still saw several idiots wandering around amongst the nests!!! Had we realised this was... More

We have been to a few of the beaches on the side of the island, and this one is our favorite so far. Clear water, white sand, plenty of umbrellas and beds for rent. Only limitation is no food service at the sun beds, but that seems like a silly complaint! And it's a walk up the hill to get... More

A stunning beach with white sand and turquoise sea. It is reached by a sloping road, so not great for the less mobile, but it is so worth a visit if you can. The beach is populated by turtles who nest there at certain times of the year and they put safeguards in place that mean you can't walk on... More

We went here right after some rain and thunder so it was really quiet there. Before entering the beach a lady told us to stay away from the back because of the turtle nests. She didn't sound really kind, but I think her English just isn't that good. The water was beautiful and the beach really clean. Too bad I... More

One of the most glorious beaches on Zante and if you turn left at the bottom of the steps past the umbrellas for about 500 m to the far end the there are lots of naturists - we were there yesterday ( 8 May 2015) and it was fabulous. Nothing commercial on the beach at all so take plenty of... More
