This is a great beach which is good for swimming and snorkeling. We took the boat trip from here to the Shipwreck beach & Blue caves which were also great.

No words for this little corner of paradise, mandatory to go before 9am and to stay until 11am. Water is crystal, a lot of fish will swim with you (don t expect something similar to red sea, but it's nice). When we've visited it, there were sunbeds at the beginning of the beach (maybe 20 or 40 sunbeds) and the rest of the beach is free. Put the mask and go near the border (left or right) you'll find fishes. Enjoy this little paradise and go away after 11am when people arrive.

Great location, affordable accommodatio all around, not hustle and bustle or gimmicky and not overly touristy. It is a destination for the tourist who wants do their own thing and doesn't mind settling into a holiday routine of some time by the beach and then casual time exploring Zakynthos from the eastern side of the island. All landmarks are 20-30 minute accessible, and, along the way some out of the way places and finds that you didn't expect. There are great food restaurants serving very local food which is affordable, of which To Petrino 50m from the beach is a must try! Generous portions using very fresh local ingredients some of which they produce themselves, a very local family run business who really care for their guests.
We are a family of three and ventured here from Australia with our 17mth old son and found this leave is a pleasure and an ease.
