My husband & I have been coming to Zante now for 6yrs twice a year. We have seen this beach from the main road (well the top road, whatever!!! )Always looked lovely but never went there. We have recently moved to this lovely Island and so 2day we thought we would explore!!!! Absolutely fantastic is all i can say!! I have read comments where they say.. no sunbeds, no food or drinks, ... well this year 2013 they have it all!!! AMAZING !!
Visited Zakynthos July 2010 and fell head over heals. Xigia beach is a beautiful spot and well worth a visit. There are two beaches south and north Xigia. The north is more popular as access is easier, but the south although a bit further to walk, unless you have a 4x4 is also beautiful. Just up from the turn off to South Xigia is a fantastic taverna The Pelagaki. You will be greeted with the warmest of Greek hospitality and the food, well what can I say. All food is produced on their farm which is just up the road. They are so passionate about their menu and take the greatest pride in producing fantastic food, home made wine. I spent many an evening with my family eating beautiful food, looking at a beautiful view. We loved this place so much that we will be returning next year. If you pass this restaurant which is on the main road pull in and you will soon see what I mean. Enjoy!!!!
