The stunning beaches of Zakynthos

Zakynthos ● Zante ● 08 July 2017

The Shipwreck Beach in Zakynthos is considered among the best beaches worldwide. It is an exposed sandy cove, which owes its name to the wreck of a ship called Panagiotis that is believed to have been a smugglers ship. The area of the beach attracts thousands of tourists yearly, but you can access it only by boat. This popular site is also a famous base jumping location. The beauty of the landscape, the colour of the waters and the combination of the golden sand with the shipwreck create a picture that is a trademark of Greece.

However, Zakynthos has many other beautiful beaches, all of which have the crystal-clear waters of the Ionian Sea, soft sand, tourist facilities and vivid beach bars.

Kalamaki Beach (Zakynthos) is thanks to its location near Zakynthos airport one of the most developed tourist resorts. Although it gets very popular, in Kalamaki Beach (Zakynthos), there is always plenty of space and a lot of umbrellas to enjoy the top quality facilities of the beach, do water sports and feel the warm sun on your face drinking your cocktail.

Agios Nikolaos is located on the northern side of Zakynthos and is an ideal cove for scuba diving. It is considered one of the most representative beaches in Zakynthos thanks to its tourist facilities, the lively beach bar as well as the quiet spots you can find there.

Tsilivi Beach (Zakynthos) is the closest wonderful and organised beach to Zakynthos Town, only 6 km from the main town. The area is full of bars, clubs, restaurants, hotels and cafés and attracts mostly British and Italian tourists. The beach is characterised by its clear waters and its water sports facilities.

Limni Keriou Beach (Zakynthos) is situated in the southern, very touristy developed side of Zakynthos, but it has kept its traditional character. Lush greenery, calmness and a diving club make Limni Keriou Beach (Zakynthos) the ultimate spot for water sports and a unique day by the sea.

Gerakas is a long sandy beach with crystalline waters and an unspoiled scenery that makes it an off-the-beaten-path choice in Zakynthos. Some rock formations on the seashore offer you the feeling of protection and isolation in this lovely beach that is perfect for relaxing, swimming and sunbathing.
