It's kind of a drive to get there but the beach was pretty nice. Very shallow for a long way which is perfect for young kids but gets deeper eventually. 3/4 is roped to protect the turtles nests but you will still see idiots going...More

We visited Gerakas beach in October. The weather was very good. This place become one of my favourite beaches on Zakhyntos. You can find turtle nests there, water is calm, warm and clear. Definetely worth visiting.

Hired a car to get to this beach as we were staying on the opposite side of the island. Nice private beach away from touristy shops and restaurants. Truly peaceful and no harrassment from passing vendors or shop owners as there aren't any! Went there...More

We drove to Gerakas Beach, the furthest point south on the island, the water is clear and clean with an excellent beach. Some of the beach was cordoned off due to the protection of turlle nests. This didn,t have an impact on the beach users...More
