    Awesome beach
    One of the best beaches on the island. A bit far from tourist resorts, but this is good for me. Only you have to go by car. The beach is gorgeous and so long. I was surprised to look at it from above, so long and clean. The blue water was glittering under the hot sun. The sand was so soft and hot, it was burning to walk on it (of course, this was our hottest day on Zakynthos, 42oC). Water was so refreshing and my sweating son didn't want to get out of the sea for two hours!! Frankly, an awesome beach!!
