Wonderful place to swim and chill out. It is a steep hike but can be done with the right shoes and holding on carefully. From the car park that looks like the end of the road head towards the flag, then keep going down and...More

Take water and food as there is nothing down there when you get there. Also take your rubbish away when you leave as it’s pristine

One of the most beautiful view I have ever seen. Cristal see, natural and exotic place. One reccomdation..go there with good trekking shoes and water. Without shoes is impossible or hard to see the beach down.

I loved this place the most. It's like a secret gem. The stairs to get down are a little bit of challenge, but it is worth every step. The water is clear and sky blue, rocks and the greatness of the mountains look amazing. You...More

The walk to the water is about 20 minutes and a bit of a challenge. If you are careful it's okay to take this "road". Once you get to the water there's no real beach. Until the last step into the water, there is a...More

It is true that the walk from the parking till the bathing spot is a relatively long walk, but the effort gets rewarded with one of the most beautiful places on Zakynthos. It is always almost empty. Just a few people at a time. There...More

We have been in Zakinthos many times before, we are here the last three months, that's the whole summer, yet we didn't have a clue of this place. Simply the Paradise. Bear in mind though that you need to pass through difficulties to get into...More

We found this little gem after I spoke with Tony, at his cafe in Agalas - he told me of a secluded beach/cove nearby, great for couples. It took us a little off-roading to find it first time round, but when we got there, we...More
