The village displays numerous stone-built houses and old churches that have survived the earthquake of 1953. The most important is the church of Agia Paraskevi, that houses fine icons and frescoes. The old windmills that stand on the hill are also a sign from the past. You can also see the 16th-century monastery of Agios Georgios. In close distance is the famous Shipwreck, an impressive cove with crystalline waters and soft sand. The Shipwreck Bay can be reached only by boat but there is a spot above Volimes where you can look down at the beach.

    Keeps tradition alive
    Volimes is a great village to see the traditional side of Zakynthos. Short houses, nice figures and small alleys. At Volimes, there was a very nice lady that treated us rose spoon sweet and gave us a big smile to fare well. I hope she is fine. All houses were stone, some attached one to another and had beautiful gardens. Have a Greek coffee at the traditional cafeteria in the square. Mr Panagiotis cooks the best Greek coffee ever!
