Zakynthos Beaches

A helpful guide to the best beaches in Zakynthos

Zakynthos island is home to some breathtaking beaches. From Navagio, aka Shipwreck beach up in the north west, down to Banana Beach in the south east.

There’s everything from popular tourist beaches with water sports, multiple tavernas, music, table service and wifi to quiet secluded beaches with nothing but the sounds of the water lapping at the shore.

Must see Zakynthos beaches

Unique beaches in Zakynthos include Xigia which has a natural hot spring, it’s said to be great for the skin but you do have to put up with the sulphur smell which will put some people off.

There’s also Navagio where there’s the wreckage of a ship that’s been there for over 40 years, it’s now rusting and sinking into the pebbles and this, along with the rugged cliffs makes navagio an ever popular destination for photographers in Zakynthos.

Popular beaches in Zakynthos

The most popular beaches, perhaps understandably are those around the busy tourist villages, think Laganas beach and Tsilivi beach too. 

The beauty of these beaches is that they have the most facilities so plenty of places to get snacks and drinks as well as stuff to keep everyone entertained.

As well as those you have the popular south east coast, here you'll find St Nicholas beach, banana beach and Porto Zorro beach too, they're all great beaches with loungers but water sports are less popular due to the turtle conservation in this area.

Secluded Zakynthos beaches

If you're looking for a nice quiet beach that you can have almost to yourself then take a look at Xechoriatis beach close to Alykes and Alykanas.

Another option is Dafni beach where you'll share the sand with protected turtle nests, there's no water sports and no taverna directly on the beach so it's the perfect spot for a bit of peace and quiet.
