Which Greek Island Blog

Keri

Keri beach is a narrow stretch just north of Limni Keri harbour. Tavernas bookend the largely pebbled stretch of coast as well as many other food and drink options in the area, but overall this far-flung resort is small and perfect for rest and relaxation.

Xigia

Xigia beach is towards the north of Zakynthos island on the east coast. As Xigia has natural spring waters filled with collagen and sulphur it’s renowned as a top-notch therapeutic hot spot and is the perfect place for a relaxing, healing float.

Laganas

beach is sandy and absolutely huge, it's covered in rows and rows of sun loungers that are quite tightly packed in. Beach side bars play music and water sports like ringos, jetskis, banana boats and more keeps everyone entertained throughout the day.

Makris Gialos

Makris Gialos beach is on the north east coast of Zakynthos, it's small at just 160m long and a narrow 15m at it’s widest. It’s pebble under foot and the water is crystal clear but does get deep quickly so not ideal for kids or weak swimmers.

Marathias

Marathias beach is on the east coast of the Keri peninsular down in the south of Zakynthos. The rocky landscape and lush, green hills offer shade over the pebble beach. There are sometimes a handful of sunbeds available, but not always and there's no taverna.

Navagio

Navagio Beach, known also as Shipwreck Beach or Smugglers Cove is one of the most photographed beaches anywhere in Greece. This picturesque beach with stunning azure waters, high cliffs on all sides and a shipwreck on the beach is certainly beautiful and unique.

Plaka

Plaka is on the north coast of the Vasilikos peninsular. It’s a relatively small beach at just 160m wide and around 30m deep so there’s room for 3 or 4 rows of sun loungers. There’s no taverna on Plaka beach itself but there’s one just set back a few metres behind the beach.

Porto Koukla

Porto Koukla is in the bay of Laganas, south west of Agios Sostis beach, it's narrow at just 10m but stretches for around 200m. There’s a single row of sun loungers and a taverna on the grass verge behind the beach which offers lovely views out to Marathonisi island.

Porto Limnionas

Porto Limnionas isn't really a beach, it’s a fjord on the south west coast of Zakynthos. The trek down a steep and rocky hill may be challenging, but the views are truly worth it. These sparkling turquoise waters make a postcard worthy setting for a swim.

Porto Roma

Porto Roma beach is mainly sand with some stones around the waters edge and a stone wall at the rear. It’s narrow, less than 10 metres wide but stretches out for over 200m. There’s a single row of sun loungers on the sand but more on the grass verge.
