Which Greek Island Blog

Gerakas

The stunning bay of Gerakas is an unspoiled section of coast that’s the perfect spot for a tranquil break away from the more tourist heavy beaches on the island. There's only a few sun beds available to rent, no water sports, no taverna and no music.

Ionio

Ionio beach is a continuation of Banana beach on the north coast of the Vasilikos peninsula, it's just 10m deep in some places but over 40 in other areas and around 300m long with the entire length from Banana beach up past Ionio beach being way over a kilometre.

Kalamaki

The crystal clear, shallow waters of Kalamaki Beach offer safe swimming for kids and excellent snorkelling for nature lovers. In addition to loads of fish, you might encounter a sea turtle, as this extension of Laganas Beach is a common nesting location.

Kaminia

Kaminia beach, also known as Porto Kaminia beach is on the north coast of the Vasilikos peninsula. At under 200m long and just 15m at it’s widest, Kaminia is a small but well organised beach. Sunbeds and umbrellas are available both on the beach and on the grass verge.

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.

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 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.
