Transfer to Argassi and beach

Hi All,

I have 2 questions:

1. Whats the easiest and cheapest way to transfer from Zante airport to Argassi, time/price etc?

2. I understand the beach isnt fantastic in Argassi, however are there other beaches within a 15 - 20 minute walk away?

Many thanks and look forward to your replies.

taxi is the quickest and most convenient way from the airport, around 15 minutes travelling time. This is the link to the taxi prices.

The beach isn't the greatest but there are pool bars close to the beach where you can hire beds and still get the sea views. The nicest beaches outside of argassi are down in vassilikos but you would need transport to get there or a taxi. Possibly a bus but not sure how often these run.

The beach bars in Argassi are all free sunbeds, but you are expected to buy the odd drink or two although not compulsory just don't take your own with you. The beach isn't brilliant but its not too bad & we've put quite a few posts on here about it, take a look around some of the previous posts & you'll find loads of info about the bars & the beach etc. Don't let the stories about the beach put you off, if you really want to pay for sunbeds on the beach Argassi is the nearest resort to some of the best beaches on the island at Vassilikos but I'd rather save the €7 a day for beds & spend it in the beach bars on breakfast etc.

Easiest way for transfer is taxis outside arrivals hall, 10mins -ish & you'll be in your accomodation
