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.

Porto Koukla

Porto Koukla is in the bay of Laganas, south west of Agios Sostis beach, it's just 10m wide 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 of 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.

Porto Vromi

Porto Vromi is a picturesque bay with a pair of beaches on the west coast of Zakynthos. Despite the two beaches being just 250m apart, there’s no direct link between them. Both are small pebble beaches at around 25m wide with harbours but no taverna.

Porto Zorro

Porto Zorro beach is down in the south east corner of Zakynthos just 11km from the capital. There’s a ton of sun loungers that are quite tightly packed in. There’s so many that they cover most of the eastern side of the beach, with the western end left clear.

Psarou

Psarou beach is a rugged stretch of sand on the north east coast. There’s no sun loungers or water sports 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 good and the water is shallow.

St Nicholas

St Nicholas beach, also known as Agios Nikolaos is on the east coast of the Vasilikos peninsular. It’s covered in sun loungers with just a small section at the northern end left clear, this is also where you'll find the small church that gives the beach it's name.

Tsilivi

Tsilivi is popular with families and couples and this means the beach is also busy. Luckily it's over a kilometre long so there’s plenty of space for everyone, it's sandy and a regular recipient of the international Blue Flag award for its cleanliness.
