Which Greek Island Blog

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.

Marathias

Marathias beach is on the east coast of the Keri peninsular down in the south of Zakynthos. The rocky landscape and lush, green hills offer shade over the pebble beach. There are sometimes a handful of sunbeds available, but not always and there's 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. There's umbrellas and sun loungers, a beach bar for food and drink as well as showers, toilets and changing facilities. Despite all these amenities it remains pretty quiet.

Astrakeri

Astrakeri is on the north coast of Corfu between Roda and Sidari. It's a large rustic beach with minimal facilities, it'is 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 a bit 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.

Exo Hora

Visiting Exo Hora is like taking a step back in time, it survived the 1953 earthquake well and is untouched by tourism with no large hotels and just a couple of tavernas. It's a traditional village that's perfect for an afternoon away from the crowds.

Gyri

Gyri is a tiny village in Zakynthos. Gyri has just 20-30 houses, a couple of which are rented out. There's no hotels and just a single taverna so Gyri really isn't a tourist hot spot but if you like exploring traditional Greek villages then it's perfect.

Kampi

Kampi, sometimes also known as Kambi is a tiny village in the middle of the west coast of Zakynthos. As you might expect from such a tiny village, there are minimal tourist facilities, just a couple of villas to rent and a couple of tavernas on the outskirts.

Kiliomenos

Kiliomenos is a small settlement close to the centre of Zakynthos. where a local women’s cooperative sells local products including olive oil, wine, honey, herbs, cheese, soap, candles, sweets, liqueurs, weaving, knitting, embroidery, jewellery, ornaments, and more.
