This is beautiful beach and is a nesting area for the turtles. I advise a visit as the views are amazing and you can learn a lot about the turtles at the local marine rescue centre, but I would not recommend this for a beach...More

A long sandy beach, a real nature beach with a special fauna and flora, so it will be nice to protect it more; but it's a lovely beach for familys with children to see some turtles, also for sunbaths and swimming.

I read that there should be a sanctuary for the turtles. There is a building but no staff. The beach is average.

Amazing sandy beach. Beautiful views and water so clear. Very easy to get to and the beach is a walking distance from the car park. Very good restaurants walking distance from the beach with very good Greek food. Car is a must in Zakynthos!

We came here for the turtle nesting, and given their rarity hardly saw any eggs, let alone turtles. Wrong time of day perhaps, or wrong season. The beach was nice, but windy given that it’s location on the southern part of the island. No amenities...More
