Dafni Beach Zakynthos

What's Dafni Beach like

Dafni beach is on the south coast of the Vasilikos peninsula down in the south east of Zakynthos (Zante) Island. It’s just 12km from the capital Zakynthos town which is around a 25 minute drive.

The steep and rocky road to Dafni Beach will certainly test your driving mettle, but if you’re looking for a remote place to relax, you couldn’t do any better.
The rugged cliffs shelter this quiet coastal stretch and its calm, clear waters. This part of the Ionian Sea is so tranquil, it’s perfect for swimmers, and the stunning reefs below the softly undulating waves are a prime attraction for snorkelers.

Dotted up and down the beach are protected turtle nests for the endangered Caretta species, so lying on the sand is not allowed, but sunbeds are provided. The beach’s devotion to turtle preservation also means this is not an ideal spot for sports or children’s playtime – it is very much a quiet place to unwind and experience the wonders of nature first-hand.

The waters are teeming with fish and if you’re lucky, you just might see a turtle nest hatch. The nearby taverna is a convenient spot to order up some fresh seafood or other Greek delicacy.
