Beaches

Ionio or Banana Beach is one of the longest beaches on the island, with shallow, crystal blue water.

There are a number of small beach bars, sunbeds and parasols along the length of the beach.

Gerakas Beach is a bay with endless sand, quite possibly one of the most beautiful beaches, not only of Vassilikos, but of the island. This is where the Caretta – caretta turtles lay their eggs. Gerakas is protected by the National Marine Park of Zakynthos. There are no watersports or bars on the beach, and it is prohibited to be on the beach at night.

St Nicholas Beach has taken its name from the picturesque chapel of Agios Nicholas, which can be found on a small hill on the edge of the beach.

It is the island's most cosmopolitan beach. It has beach bars playing loud music, plenty of sunbeds and parasols, and watersports.

Daphne Beach is a true paradise in the Bay of Lagana, with vast stretches of sand and amazing views. Opposite the beach is the small islet of Pelouzzo.

The Caretta – caretta turtles lay their eggs here. Daphne Beach is protected by the National Marine Park of Zakynthos. There are no watersports. The little taverns that operate here are only open during the day so that they don't disturb the turtles.

Sekania Beach is one of the most important nesting beaches of the Caretta – caretta turtle, which is why it is protected by the National Marine Park of Zakynthos and the World Wildlife Federation, to which it belongs.

Porto Zorro is a small beach with clear blue water and lush vegetation that almost touches the water.

The two rocks situated at the edge of the beach make an impressive scene. There are numerous sunbeds and parasols.
