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.

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.

Bouka

Bouka beach has plenty of sand, shallow waters, and no organized watersports to interrupt your sunbathing, this tranquil, unspoiled cove is perfect for swimmers, families with children, and anybody else after a restful day, just watch out for the rocks.

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 Sostis

There's two sections to Agios Sostis beach, separated by Sostis port. Both beaches have sand under foot, sun loungers to hire and tavernas at the rear. There’s pedalos and boats available to rent on both so you can explore the coast if you want.

Alykanas

Alykanas beach is located close to the centre of the north east coast, it's a natural continuation of Alykes Beach with water sports and plenty of beach bars for food and drinks. Its sheltered, shallow waters are ideal for children and weaker swimmers.

Alykes

The pristine golden sands of Alykes beach gently slope into the Ionian Sea, with plenty of clear, shallow waters, making this famous beach a perfect choice for families with small children. There’s also a selection of water sports including paddle boarding.

Amboula

Amboula beach is just outside the resort of Tsilivi on the north east coast of Zakynthos. The beach is sand with pebbles around the shoreline. It’s just 10 metres wide but stretches out for over 300 metres with both sun loungers and pedalos available.

Amoudi

Amoudi beach is on the north east coast of Zakynthos, just east of Alykanas, it's really narrow and can even be covered completely by water at times. There's a stone jetty in the middle of the beach and a handful of sun loungers to hire but no water sports.
