Which Greek Island Blog

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.

Xechoriatis

Xechoriatis beach, otherwise known as Old Alykanas beach or even Xhoriati beach is around 200m long but incredibly narrow, just a couple of metres in places. The beach is sandy, lined with trees and has a handful of sun loungers but no taverna.

Dafni

Dafni beach is on the south coast of the Vasilikos peninsula down in the south east of Zakynthos island. There's a steep and rocky road to navigate on your way to the beach but if you’re looking for a remote place to relax, you couldn’t do much better.

Agios Spyridon

Agios Spyridon is a lovely sandy beach that slopes gently into the sea making it ideal for kids but remains pretty quiet. There's umbrellas and sun loungers, a beach bar for food and drink as well as showers, toilets and changing facilities.

Astrakeri

Astrakeri is on the north coast of Corfu between Roda and Sidari. It's a large rustic beach with minimal facilities, it's mainly sand but with some pebbles in places, the water is shallow which means it’s ideal for kids but it does drop steeply once you get further out.

Halikounas

Halikounas, often called Chalikounas, is a vast sandy beach on the south west coast of Corfu, right on the edge of Lake Korisson. The beach has soft golden sand with some rocks. There are a couple of tavernas, one at the start and one around the middle.

Macherado

Macherado is an unspoiled hamlet filled with authentic Greek tradition and natural beauty, Amid the lush vegetation lies Agia Mavra Church, it was destroyed by a fire in 2006 but was recently restored back to it's original Venetian glory.

Maries

Maries is tucked away in the northern mountains of Zakynthos. It's a relatively undeveloped resort but there are still some hotels and tavernas, making it a lovely base for anyone wishing to escape the tourist crowds and explore the northern villages.

Tragaki

Tragaki lies close to the north east coast between Tsilivi and Alykanas. It enchants visitors with a combination of natural beauty and easy access to developed amenities. This resort boasts a small selection of hotels and a handful of dining options.

Vasilikos

Vasilikos is a region at the tip of the Vasilikos peninsular. There’s no real village centre, it’s more a collection of houses and hotels in amongst the vegetation, rolling hills and olive groves. It’s not a developed tourist resort which some will love.
