This beach used to belong to the turtles only. Today it is partially taken by the tourists who naively believe it is worth to take a picture with these animals. The other part of the beach is protected for the turtles' nests, but that's not...More

A beautiful beach with gently sloping sands- we visited on a Sunday having heard about a brilliant quiet beach however we weren’t expecting the bus loads of 18 to 30 types to arrive- especially as it’s a turtle beach - bit of a shame

We sat on this beach most days, and after touring some of Zakynthos and visiting other beaches, we feel it was one of the best! A bit pricey to hire a sunbed ( 10 Euro for 1/2 a day) , but still worth a visit

We stayed in Vasilikos and were very happy to return to Gerakas Beach, having previously visited in 2001. The Marine Conseravation Centre is now much larger, and smarter in construction, but still has the same peaceful and very worthwhile feel. A very pleasant bar area...More

It is still a beach not violated by beach bars and music and it’s the place to be when you want to relax!! Crystal clean waters and nice sightseeing!!
