The beach is ok. You have to walk a little to get there. A drawback I noticed was the algae on the pebbles In the sea. Whenever a wave came, it seemed dirty.

No nice
Jun 2021 • Family
The beach as a special nature, stone. The gentleman who puts on and takes off his umbrellas very ugly speaks to the visitors. He is very arrogant and uneducated. Payment for umbrellas to all visitors is different…. he was probably looking for a man. Trash is completely missing. Paying chesh without a check. Smell of oil, oil stains in the water. In our reply to the oil slick, asking for the money back, we were refused. I left very disappointed. We do not recommend the beach just for the simple reason, the gentleman is an uneducated pig.

Worst beach in Zakynthos
Jul 2021 • Family
We went with a group of 6 adults and 3 kids and at beggining felt a smell of petrol in the water, later the petrol itself was present. The man with sunbeds was very rude, charges 10 euro for two. When I asked for a trash bin he gave me a bag from a supermarket. All in all simply avoid this place, if you need just get a pic there and go to better locations on Zakynthos.

Avoid this beach
Jul 2021 • Friends
The beach itself was beautiful and quiet, but we soon figured out why there's no-one there. The guy who rents the chairs came to stare at us for 5 minutes (we're a group of young 17-19 years old women). When he left we discussed as we felt really uncomfortable and decided to leave the beach but the guy came speeding down the small pathway with a motorcycle so we had to jump to the bushes to get out of his way. Then he went on and URINATED in front of us!! Definitely wouldn't visit the beach again, especially alone, as we felt threatened by him and disgusted by his behaviour.

One of my favourite Zakynthos beaches. Should definately visit. There is good access and really few people visiting this beach. If you like privacy this is the place.

Water nice, beach beds terrible
Aug 2020 • Family
Long walk, nice water. I think this my only only negative review on trip adviser.
The guy doing the beach beds was really aggressive, not the type of atmosphere I would like on holiday
Avoid

"Peace, quiet and a view"
Sep 2019
Walked from Keri Limni and to the beach here. Lovely views. Rocks or sunbeds to sit on. Swimming and snorkling too.
The Kantina here is a lovely place to sit and have a drink or a light snack.Nice tables to sit under the trees. Well set out. Easy just to sit here for hours if you like peace and quiet.No toilets though.
There is a taverna near but we didn't visit it.[ they have toilets]

Amazing crystal clear sea
Sep 2019
This beach is a hidden gem on Zante accessed by a steep walk down the track. However when you reach it the view is amazing and the shingle beach is beautiful.
There are sunbeds to hire and we found the man to be very obliging as we asked before we set up for the day. For information when you get to the bottom of the track there is a tiny beach but you just have to paddle round the corner to the right.
Would most definitely visit this beach again as there were only a few people on it and it was heaven.

Super nice beach
Jul 2018
The beach is very beautiful and calm, one just has to be aware of the tar which comes out of natural tar-wells, wetshoes are recommended becausec it is a stone beach. The Keeper of the beach, who also rents sun umbrellas and sunbeds, is always on guard and informs you when it is better to watch for the tar on the water or steps in when some sailors or motoboats come to close ashore. Once a day a nice old man visits the beach to sell drinks and incredible fresh fruit salad. Thx to the two guys for some perfect days on your beach.

Perfect for snorkeling
Sep 2018 • Family
Okay, I never approached the rude guy in charge of umbrellas, so my review may not be fully objective. However, here's what I liked:

- Depth starts immediately
- Perfect for snorkeling - here's where I saw a small moray and a cuttlefish, among other species
- Very clean
- Few people

Cons:

- Hard to reach
- Very steep and stony descent, equally steep and dusty, exhausting ascent to the parking area
- No sand, all pebbles - make sure you wear your Crocs or something

The bottom line is that the beach is very different from other beaches on Zakynthos, and that's unquestionably good. Go there at least once to get the idea.
