NOTE: please go early to experience the beauty this place has to offer! Me and my girlfriend went by quad early in the morning (around 9:00) and the drive there was long but very beautiful. Upon arrival we could chose nice sun-beds for €5 pp. At this time there were not many people so it was really quiet and peaceful! Via a small rock path down you can reach the water (take some rock shoes with you, it’s better than bare feet). The water was simply astonishing, very clear and blue and there were nice caves and clean rocks. We went with diving gear and to see the most the Porto Limnionas has to offer I really recommend doing the same. There were beautiful fishes and the raw underwater nature was breathtaking. Around 12:00 the masses of people started coming and it became too busy.
I definitely recommend this for everyone!

Stunning location, convenient for the beach, sun loungers are €12 per pair for the day, you can order drinks and food to them or go to the restaurant. The views are unreal and there is a lot of staff waiting to serve you at all times. The only but is that it lack in authenticity, it feels like they want you to come, spend money and go asap.

Well worth the 45 minute drive from Tsilivi.
The view is amazing and the water crystal clear. It is possible to hire masks and snorkels if you don’t take your own. It does get busy - even off season - we arrived around 11am and had a reasonable choice of places to sit... people arrived at lunchtime and were disappointed. We spent a whole day here and enjoyed chilling on comfy loungers with lots of shade. The staff are keeping everything super-clean and washing each bed down when a guest leaves. The walk down to the water has been made easy with steps! Definitely recommend wearing swim shoes and if you don’t have any pick some up in one of the tourist shops for around €6. There’s ‘at sunbed’ service and the taverna serves reasonably priced, tasty food.
A super chilled, soul restoring day.
Highly recommended.

A very beautiful spot for swimming and snorkelling. Great view under water and a lot to see.

The water is a lot colder compared to other places on the island tho! This is probably due to the water from the open sea and the caves.

This whole area is just beautiful! Above the water and under it!!

But.. this is no “hidden gem”, it is very crowded! There were barely any spots to sit of lay down, and that while we were quite late in the season. It only started to be a little less crowded when the sun started to get low.

We definitely enjoyed our time here, and had some of the more beautiful views under water we had so far.

I can say that this beach is the most beautiful place in Zakhyntos in my opinion. The beach is terraced by the length of a sunbed, the shade made by the umbrellas is reinforced by pines tree planted very often on each level. The view over the sea is invaluable, and the clear water washing the rocks invites you to jump in . In the mountains that border the water there are many caves with smooth access for the curious and for the daring ones there are also some crevices to explore. the price of two sunbeds with table and parasol is 8 €, drinks and food are ordered separately. To the cautious I confess that the staff wears protective masks and the sunbeds are cleaned with disinfectant. There is also a tavern with typical Greek food, tasty at an affordable price. But I will write a separate opinion about the tavern. For now, I'm talking about the beach and the water; I can almost say that I came to Zakintos a second time to get to this wonderful place. Wearing special water shoes, my husband and the children walked on the rocks and "picked" sea salt. I think you understand that I like this place more than the 5 stars I can give it 😃 To the beauty of the place I can add the road through the mountain villages and then leave behind the villages covering the last kilometers on the tops of the mountains small vegetation specific to heights . Live long, Enjoy life !!!

We arrived early (1000), which is certainly the best time. So we had no problem getting a sun bed at the taverna and the car park was not busy. We had a good time jumping and swimming in the cove. It is a good place for snorkelling. The water varies between warm and cold depending on where you swim. Very refreshing at this time of year. There are no showers anywhere, so take a large bottle of water for that if you don't want to leave salty. By the time we left after mid day, the car park was full and cars were parked along the road for quite a distance.

Really nice place to swim. And lots of dry places to leave your things on. Has a restaurant at the top which you go through to get to the sea. Parking is minimal and lots of cars end up parking along the very windy road you use to get to it. Lots of places to dive/jump into the water if you like that as it’s quite deep. Recommend taking some kind of mask or goggles as there are a few fish.
Has a very very small sandy beach at the end but mostly you sit on concrete or rocks.

Fabulous cove, excellent for swimming and snorkelling. Also scuba available here if you are Padi certificated. Whole place well laid out, terraces of beach beds leading down to steep steps in the rock to the swimming area. Restaurant serves excellent food with stunning views. Get there early as beds fill up fast, after 11 am you may well have a long wait. Cove is good for strong swimmers as water is quite deep. Many people use inflatable rings and lilo type beds in the sea. Snorkelling good and beautiful small fish to be observed. Well worth the drive down the rather precarious road!!

Wednesday 21st July and we visited this very remote beach. It is situated in an inlet along the western coast of the Island, Agios Leon is nearby.

It is in such a picturesque setting flanked on either side by rugged coastline with mountains as a backdrop all surrounding crystal clear blue seas.

As well as swimming it us a popular spot for snorkeling and diving.

Think it would be more accurate to call this a swimming lagoon rather than a beach, as there is no beach.

There are some sunbeds available for hire this are dotted around on ledges and concrete platforms along the headland. Space is really at a premium here and people  can be found spread out on their towels all over the place, it was really busy.

We did climb down the man-made stone steps to a concrete platform where people were launching themselves from into the beautiful blue waters below. For the more adventurous they were climbing up on to the rocks and diving & jumping into the sea.

There is a Taverna which rents out sunbeds and there is also Scuba Diving Centre.

Everything about this place is unique! The color of the water, the sunbeds on the cliffs, the views. Lovely, indeed so make sure you go visit. The road is a bit tricky so be prepared ans very careful. The restaurant is nice and offers a good selection of food and drinks. Make sure you go latest around 10:00, otherwise there might not be free sunbeds. After a certain hour there was a constant line of people waiting for sunbeds. Also, keep in mind the water is very deep and cold and access to the water is not very easy.
