This "secluded" beach is half way between Trapezaki beach and Lourdas beach. It is, in my opinion, one of the best beaches I visited in Kefalonia, wild, beautiful sea and absolutely not crowded, maybe because to reach it you have to follow a steep path (but not dangerous) anyway the Caraibic atmosphere with crystal clear waters will repay you of all efforts made to achieve this small piece of paradise.
It is not organized, so don't forget to bring your parasols and water with you.

Zakynthos from a different perspective

Dear reader,

Almost 8 years ago I set for the first time foot on the island of Zakynthos. I was staying in the area of Planos-Tsilivi and arrived by bus in the very late evening. My first thoughts were ... never again ... when I saw the overcrowded centre of Tsilivi.

Since then every single year I did spend my holidays on Zakynthos. More or less two weeks in the "pre-season" as of early May, mainly to enjoy the beautiful landscapes and flora. And again more or less two weeks in the "post-season" during the month of September to enjoy the warm Ionian in places as Porto Roma or Korakonissi.

And a few years ago now, I have bought me a little holiday house near the airport where I hope to spent -later- most of my time.

When reading some of the reviews, Zakynthos is very much appreciated for the beautiful beaches, or the nightlife, of the good food and wine, or for diving and snorkling, ...you name it.

This proves that the island offers a bit of everything to please the average tourist. Unfortunately, very few visitors refer to Zakynthos as the perfect spot to relax, meditate and hike along the rough tracks in the western or southeastern hills. Spectacular views, landscapes -and in the right season- flora and fauna can be found on the westcoast from Limni Keriou to Keri and passing Agalas, Aghios Leon, Maries and Kampi up to the northern villages of Ano and Kato Volimes.

With this review I hope to be able to invite also those visitors who are seeking rest and relaxation in an environment untouched for many many years. At the same time I am convinced that this type of visitor has the heart "on the right spot" and will actively contribute to the preservation of this island.

My favorite island

I've been in Zakynthos in 2009. It was my first time to go to a Greek island, and I must say I still remember it as the best vacation of my live.
I like Zakynthos because it is possible for everyone to find what they are looking for. For the party animals there is Laganas (not my cup of tea), for the families there is Tsilivi, etc.
We stayed at Argassi, in Porto Davia apartments, which were great, with their own private beach and a beautiful garden with palm trees. I liked Argassi because it is closest to the best beaches in Zakynthos (Agios Nikolaos, Banana beach, and my favorite Gerakas beach), and it's also very close to Zante Town.
It's a shame that Zakynthos is getting a reputation of a party island, because in reality there are much more things to see and do in this fabulous island.
I won't write anything about Navagio beach, just because it is a beach that everyone must see at least once in their lives, there are no words to describe it. After all, there is a reason why this island was the favorite one of the Venetians...

I spent one week on Zakynthos in early July. Ath the beginning I was a little bit worried about the party's atmosphere for which the Island is becoming famous in these last years, but after visiting it, I think Zakynthos has really everything for everybody: calm beaches with sand or pebbles,as well as party beaches.
The thing I liked most are the quite villages in the mountains like Anafonitria (the Monastery is worth visiting) and Volimes, and the southern part of the Island: Keri and Keri lake, the place where you can catch a boat to Marathonissi Island, a fantastic natural reserve where the turtles Caretta Caretta lay their nest.
Renting a car is definitely the best way to discover unspoiled points full of Greek charme, the roads are quite good even if the signals are not always visible.
I stayed in Alykes, the village is quite, the beach is fantastic (it has a European Blue Flag) and it is the ideal place to enjoy a relaxing holiday on the Island.
I am planning to come back there next year!

We were pleased to stay in a beautiful hotel in Argassi last July. This resort is close to the town, quite developed with various things to do on holidays. Zakynthos has a good reputation, tourists are spread around the island, especially on the southern side but there are also few resorts on the north eastern.

We took a bus tour which included the villages of Volimes, Keri and Maherado, all quite traditional and beautiful. In Tsivili you will find a beautiful beach for swimming, well-organized and not so loud as Laganas. People were very friendly, taverns were quite expensive especially in Laganas but the food was nicely cooked.

We really enjoyed the evening walks, the bars in Zante Town and the amazing beauty of this island, the green landscape is what I will mostly remember. The Shipwreck beach was probably the best beach I've been, the water was more exotic than in the Carribean, truly amazing!

Me and my family have just return from our stay at Denise beach. (sept 2011)
We had booked at the very last minute and didn't expect to get more than a very simpel room.
To our surprice we got at very nice, clean room with a good size balcony with sea view, free internet and airconditon.
The hotel is really situatet directly at the beach, away from the, at times very loud town. The water is very clean and shallow just perfekt for children.
Along the beach you will find supermarkeds and restaurants and there is only a very short walk to the main street filled with bars and fast food restaurants, traditional greek and international restaurants.
All in all we had a perfect holliday at a very nice hotel and we will absolutely consider going back

Clean, healthy and close to swimmingpool and the beautiful see!

Thanks to the tip of the owner, Jenny, we have seen the caretta-caretta turtles in the harbor:)

So if youre going to zakynthos, this is recommended.

Kind regards and thank you so much Jenny for everything.

All the best and love,

The trip to Zakynthos was great but quite tiring. Four days in such a big island are not enough, although we all agreed that it is one of the best places to spend your summer holidays. Calm beaches and fantastic paths to walk through are some of the characteristics of Zakynthos.

This island covers all tastes. You can find remote beaches, secret coves or many organized beaches with cosmopolitan atmosphere. One beach highly recommended is Navagio beach. A sheltered cove with huge rocks, the softest/whitest sand you will see in Greece and exotic water. Sadly the boat left us only for an hour, I wish we could stay more in that amazing place!

There are restaurants in Zante where the food is a bit expensive, especially in the tourist places. We discovered our own small taverns up in the mountain villages with incredible homemade recipes. The heart of nightlife entertainment and wild parties is in Laganas. A place with great toursit development, although so much noise bothered us. The beach of Laganas though is pretty nice and long.
