This area of the island is my favourite. The beach is not very crowded and you can see a great sunset from there. The road going there is right next to the shore, through the mountains and woods which makes this a totally different experience...More

This beach isn't busy which is nice if you're looking for a peaceful beach day, meanwhile the views of the coloured cliffs around the beach (see pics) are stunning. The sand is a little course as it's broken down from the cliffs but you don't...More

Beautiful beach and lovely clear blue sea. This is a turtle beach so please bear this in mind and keep away from the marked areas. There is parking and a restaurant and turtle/marine centre next to the beach so good place to spend a day

Lovely clear waters, absolutely nothing to spoil the beach apart from the parasols and sunbeds with stunning views all around. Would recommend the snack bar and turtle sanctuary (free entry but maybe buy a drink or make a donation?) as they are doing a lot...More

An amazing beach. It doesn't look as spectacular in photos as others, so I did not expect much when we chose to go there. We had a wonderful surprise, the water was really clear, calm with no waves, warm and shallow. We liked how they...More

Cracking beach, part sand and part pebbles so take your beach shoes. My son and his mate were in the water all afternoon with inflatables and snorkelling everywhere. No drinks here but a cafe at the top where the free parking is and the turtle...More

I walked about 2 miles to the beach from the end of the bus route from Zakynthos at Porto Roma Beach. There is a well kept path from the Tavernas and car park down to the beach which passes a notice about the turtles which...More
