Psarou beach is a rugged stretch of sand on the north east coast of Zakynthos
(Zante) between Amoudi beach
and Tsilivi beach
. It’s around 12km from the islands capital Zakynthos Town
and that would be about a 20 minute drive.
The beach is really narrow at less than 10m wide for most of it’s length. It is over 300m long though. It’s divided in half by some rocks that protrude out over the sand but they’re easy to get round. Depending on the tide you may find that Psarou beach is completely flooded so check for high tides before heading to the beach.
There’s no sun loungers or water sports at Psarou beach so it’s a lot quieter than some of the other beaches in the area but it’s still a good option for families as the sand is nice for kids to play on and the water is shallow for around 10m so they can splash safely at the waters edge.
There’s no taverna directly on the beach but there is one just at the roadside behind the beach. Parking is available in an area just to the side of the taverna at the bottom of the road that leads down to the beach, there’s space for close to 20 cars and given the size of Psarou beach that’s usually more than enough, you can park on the roadside if not.
