We have been coming to Zakynthos since 2016 & absolutely love this place. It is so special. We stay on the other side of the island, so only visit when we hire a car, but worth the trip

Our happy place - amazing sunsets and now has a lovely restaurant at Fondos - you won’t be disappointed.

My kids love jumping in - very young children may struggle as very Rocky & you need to jump in. Recommend rock shoes to save your feet!

For getting here you have to travel through the mountains with a lot of curves and steep slopes! A Bumby ride! But in the end this place is Beautiful and so quit. The sundbeds Are free if you order some drinks/food. The people are very nice! If you want to go into the water you have to go down a rocky aisle. Water shoes are recommended!

Nice rocky beach with comfortable sun-beds, alright food and not too many people, but the place isn’t really made for swimming. The beach is rocks only, which in itself isn’t an issue (look at the neighbor Porto Limnionas) but then there is just raw see and waves, which makes for quite an unpleasant swimming experience. There is only 1 proper way to enter the sea, and even there it doesn’t feel too comfortable. I went with my diving gear, but it was underwhelming. For swimming/diving I’d definitely pick Porto Limnionas, but if you want a nice quiet day lying in the sun, this place is for you!

Beautiful location which me and my partner have been visiting for the past 6 years. We have been here for 3/7 days of our Holliday this year, to which we’ve always used the sun beds for free as the signs say, and enjoyed food or a drink too. (Giorgios taverna) although this time we were unpleasantly greeted by the blonde waitress who was incredibly rude to us when we asked to order food and demanded us we pay for the sunbeds, which would of been fine but we questioned why the signs said free sunbeds and simply said we’d never been made to pay before for the past 6 years or 3 visits this week! Even with food. She proceeded to scream and shout at us in a restaurant full of people eating, making cocky remarks to which I said she was rude and we were leaving. I couldn’t believe the way she spoke to paying customers in front of other customers also. Disgusting behaviour from a staff member, vile language and a definite sackable offence. Such a shame as one of our favourite places in Zante, to which we will not return for as long as this vile women works here.

We stopped at Porto Roxa on our way from Keri to Skinari as a lunch break, and would definitely recommend it to others! It was easy to find and when you get there you can find plenty of space to park- make sure that you park outside of the restaurant you intend to go to. There are a few restaurant tavernas to choose from, we chose the middle one as we fancied a Gyros and that was the only one that seemed to sell them, although they all looked great.

When you buy anything from the restaurants you can have access to their designated part of the beach. Our one was amazing as it had plenty of loungers to choose from, including a double bed swing overlooking the sea, which was great for a quick nap after lunch.

The beach itself is rocks, but this makes it a good place for snorkelling on the edge of the beach. Overall, this was a really chilled and relaxing place to visit.

not far from Porto Limnionas, good view, romantic, bad enter to the sea, but this is place for good relax with a good view, for sure need to visit. It is a place where the horizon merge with the sea. Also we recommend to visit the restaurant at the entrance to this place - very tasty fresh sea food and very hospitable family-owner of the restaurant.

We were taken for a drive out to Porto Roxa by our friends who had been there before. We spent a couple of relaxing hours sunbathing in front of the sunset cafe and then we had a lovely lunch there. The service was a little slow , but none of us minded whatsoever as this is of course the Greek way when one is a little off the beaten track - it all adds to the charm of holidaying in Greece.
The proprietor brought us a lovely little complementary dessert - even though we had picked out some ice creams from the freezer - which he also kindly left off the bill.

It was approx a 45 minute drive from where we were staying in Kalamaki, but well worth it for the views on the way and once you get there.

Went here with our 3 teenagers after visiting Porto Limnionas, which was a dicey walk down the cliff to get to. This place is a lot easier to get in and out of the water and has a diving board, which my children absolutely loved. We spent most of the day here until sunset, which was fabulous. The two tavernas nearest the diving board charge 3 euros for sunbeds, one of them you get a free drink the other overlooking the sea more jis just for sunbeds and I would advise getting Ines in the shade as the sun is relentless.

We found this place by chance and we were really amazed by this beauty.
Saw some huge waves (couldn't enter the water since it would have smashed us against the rocks).
There are "in rock" bath tubes, so you can just sit and enjoy the water coming from the sea. There is a restaurant and the staff is really nice.
You can enjoy the nice view, the waves, the silence ...
