“The most beautiful beach of Zakynthos and one of the most photographed beaches of all Greece. Accessible only by sea, it gives you the idea of hugeness and perfection. It consists of millions of small pebbles with the blue shades of the sea as far as the eye can see, it results unique in its gender and the relict looks like if it was made by an artist. Waters around Navagio often have electric light blue colour because of the numerous sulphurous caves around the beach and when the sea is rising a large quantity of sulphur radiates, giving the possibility of taking beautiful pictures. To visit the beach, a part from the numerous tours of the island, it is possible, from Aghios Nikolaos, to get the daily taxi-boat offered by the local boats. We suggest visiting Navagio in the morning since in the afternoon the sea tends to become bigger and may cause problems to get back.”

“It is one of the most hidden places and maybe for this reason more beautiful and wild of the entire island. To get there you have to pass through the mountains village of Agios Leon and from there following the signs, driving down a recently asphalted road running down to the sea and ending in a small square where you can park. From there getting down a few steps carved in the rock, you reach a real fiord stupefying the visitor for the clearness and colours of the waters. It is easy to imagine that in this place there are no many tourist facilities, only recently two terraces with loungers and umbrellas have been created but are not always enough for the request. For those who really care about caves it is worth visiting the first one just getting down the steps; once there and in the water you understand that the cave is to continue … but only for those who love extreme sports. We suggest to everybody and especially those who have their own boat, to visit Porto Roxa that is only 3 km from Porto Limnionas. It is another small bay with a slipway to put boats in the water in an exceedingly beautiful part of coast.”

Beach
“Gerakas is the southern beach of the island and for sure one of the most beautiful. It consists of a long sand tongue ending in a small promontoryGeraka diving in the sea. The promontory is very famous since it is entirely made of clay and in the past was used by the tourists to get a regenerating “clay therapy”. Today, the final part of the beach is closed Gerakasbecause too many people pulled off the clay, making the ridge unsafe. From May to October for those who would like to wake up before dawn, there is the possibility to assist to the turtles’ eggs hatching and admire tens of specimens trying to reach the sea. This beach is a protected area of the Zakynthos Marine Park because of the turtles’ choice to go there to hatch, and in addition to the fact that it doesn’t offer any tourist devices the access is forbidden from half an hour before the sunset to half an hour after dawn. ”

“Solomos Square is the central and biggest square in the city and there take place several religious and cultural events & celebrations. Here stands out the statue of our National poet, Dionisios Solomos, nowadays a copy of the original statue, work of the Athenian sculptor Georgios Vroutos. Around the Square you can see several remarkable buildings which still follow their pre-earthquake form, as well as the church of Saint Nikolaos of the Dock. On the left, stands the Town Hall of Zakynthos Zante and in the south the statue of Ugo Foskolo. More statues in the Square are those of Pavlos Karer ans the Staue of Freedom. ”

Cave
“The Blue Caves are one of the most popular and advertised attractions of the island; you can visit them with your own boat or with one of the many organized tours. The Blue Caves consist of particular geologic formations giving life to a succession of caves along the North-West coast of the island; they start soon after Agios Nikolaos to end near Skinari Cape. Their name is due to the particular reflections of the water in the caves and you can visit many of them with a small- medium boat whereas the others are to be visited only by expert swimmers and divers. Between Agios Nikolaos and Skinari Cape it is possible to reach by car a small mill and from there coming down a hundred steps, to reach the piece of coast where the caves are. At the bottom of the steps there are some polish rocks, not very comfortable to lie down to sunbathe, that are a good base to start visiting the caves by swimming and to dive. The boat tours to visit the Blue Caves start from Makris Gialos beach, Agios Nikolaos port and Cape Skinari. ”

“ The beach of Dafni belongs to the village of Vasilikos and is located 18 km southeast of the city of Zakynthos. It is a heavenly, long sandy beach with a magnificent view of the bay of Laganas. Opposite is the small uninhabited island, Pelouzo. Its waters are shallow, calm and blue. There are also sun loungers and umbrellas available for rent. It is one of the beaches where Caretta - Careta turtles give birth to their eggs. The beach of Dafni belongs to the National Marine Park, so the protection measures are very strict. There are no water sports. Be careful driving to Dafni because the read is steep and rough. ”

“The most photographed beach in Greece, accessible only by boat. A lot of people rush to visit in the summer so the place gets very busy, but the landscape and swimming in the deep blue waters is worth it.”

“Marathonissi is a small private island in the turtles’ bay close to Limni Kerì’s beach. Until the second world war the island was lived, today it has neither inhabitants nor buildings. It is now one of the areas where the CARETTA CARETTA turtles go to breed. You can visit the island by private boat or by organized tourists’ visits by caique and for the stronger ones there is the possibility to go by canoes and maybe meeting the turtles. Beach of Marathonissi Pay attention that as the island is inside the Marine Park the anchorages it is not legal. There are two beautiful beaches: one of pebbles, reachable by swimming from a huge cave, the other one is a large sand area smoothly gliding towards the sea. For those who love the sun the sandy beach is the best whereas for those who love snorkeling the pebble one is perfect to visit the cave (on the right to the beach) and other smaller ones or partly submerged full of starfish and concretions. The island offers no snack bars, electricity or anything that may disturb the turtles; taking this into consideration it is advisable to take food and beverage when going there. Marathonissi Caves. For those coming with their own boat, we suggest visiting the Kerì Caves, a few minutes by boat from the island along Marathia’s Cape coast. One more peculiar thing about the island: Zakynthos is famous for the turtles and also for the last specimen of Monacus Monacus seals that populate its shores. One of those seals chose one of the small caves of Marathonissi as its “Summer residence”, we leave to the more adventurous ones the pleasure to discover it. ”
