There is something special about Vrahos, you can't quite put your finger on it, but something just pulls you in, and once you visit, you always come back!

I have been coming to Zakynthos for around 10 years now and although there are some lovely spots around the island, Vrahos feels like my home away from home. Kostas and Galateia feel like extended family and always do their best to make you comfortable and relaxed. The food is tasty and the beer on tap cold and refreshing! Kostas is also keen to keep his music playlist up to date, so you always get a good selection of tunes to zone out to.

My favourite times of the day to go there are early in the morning for a frappe and before anyone else is on the beach, or later on in the evening, once Kostas has lit all the candles and the place just becomes somewhere where you can totally let everything go...

The beach itself is pretty beautiful too and I have often just sat for hours on end staring out to sea. When the sea is completely flat, the water becomes a three-tone blue and swimming through it is amazing as it is just so clear. You couldn't really ask for much more...

If you do go, take the time to really chat to Kostas, he is a pretty funny guy and once you get some banter started, he can easily become a friend for life. He is one of the good guys and makes me think very fondly of Zakynthos, trust me you will definitely have a good giggle!

We visited vasilikos for 14 days in early September last year.Vrahos has a perfect beach, & after a hard morning sunbathing, we looked forward to the 20 metre walk up to the cafe for a club sandwich or salad- always excellent, and ice cold beers. The view, & chilled tunes (not too loud) made for a perfect lunch. Kostas really makes this place special, with his friendly & efficient service.

Zakynthos is a beautiful island and four years ago my Wife and I found our ideal location, Vasilikos.
Vasilikos has some of the Best beaches on the island and we found ours……..Vrahos Beach, next to Plaka Beach. Your first glance at this lovely beach is with the Snack Bar, built out of traditional Greek Stone which was actually quarried from the site when first this piece of land was excavated. It is truly a magnificent building and this is where you first meet the owners, Kostas and his lovely Sister Galateia. They are the perfect hosts, who both speak good English and serve up some fantastic snack meals. An extensive Menu is on offer and I especially love their BLT and Chips, with Salad and Mayonnaise. There is, to name a few, Toasted Sandwiches, Filled Rolls, Club Sandwiches, Chicken Nuggets, Scampi and Greek Salads and food, all cooked to perfection, and served as ample portions. Cold Beers, Amstel and Myphos all at the right Temperature in a frozen glass cannot be served any better on a hot day, also plenty of soft cool drinks, readily available from the cold cabinet. A range of Cocktails, Cappuccino Coffee, Nescafé or Tea if you wish, can also be served. A grassed Terrace with umbrellas and comfortable chairs is an ideal place to eat, drink and take in the lovely view of the beach and sea. Music is always playing in the background and just adds to that feel that you are now on a beautiful Greek Island. Kostas and Galateia always give exceptional friendly service and I have never met such lovely people and over the years have become very good friends. I don’t think that you will find anywhere else on the island where the hosts are so friendly and will always have a good conversation with you if you so wish, telling you about the area,location,Greek traditions and about the view to the mainland and Kefalonia from the Beach. This is truly a beautiful location for a Beach Snack Bar and a peaceful quiet Beach where you can relax on Sun-Beds under large umbrellas made of traditional Greek reed and large enough to protect you from the sun if you so do wish. There are also some umbrellas with Sun-Beds on a Terrace above the Beach, which give you a more overall view of the sea and surroundings. The sunbeds here are probably cheaper than most other beaches, set at 5 euros for two; this year 2012.There is also a shower on the beach that can be used.
Vrahos Beach is the perfect Beach Snack Bar on Zakynthos for that ideal relaxing holiday, with a good Menu of excellent food and kind hospitality. Thank you Kostas and Galateia for making my holiday exceptional.If you hire a car,you must visit this part of the island and spend time at Vrahos Beach;you will most certainly not be disappointed.
Vrahos Beach is definitely where I want to be for many years to come. Looking forward to seeing you both in 2013.

Vrahos Beach Bar is the ideal place to get away from everyday stress.
You can get several dishes( Burgers, Club Sandwich, Salads etc), as well as soft drinks and orginial greek draft beer.
Relax in the evening with the best view to the see, by having a nice cocktail too!
The owner of Vrahos Beach Bar is Kostas.
He is a very nice and kind guy, and if you have a special wish, he will alwys try to get it for you.

So, if you want to have a very relaxing holiday, just visit the VRAHOS! :)

I have been in Zante 4 summers and every year I find in Vasilikos all what I need for a perfect holiday... Not only amazing nature and crystal sea but also excellent food and always smiley people. If you are there don't miss Vrahos Beach to chill out and have lunch in a relaxing and friendly atmosphere; Kostas the owner and his sister make the best of it every day!! I loved it in the evenings also, small candles on the tables, stars over your head and a frozen beer in your hand...what's best?? I will definately go back!!
