4.0A big sandy beach able to accommodate everyone from the neighbouring resort and more. Lots of tourist facilities on hand.
4.1Probably the best place to actually see a turtle. Just wade about in the shallow water and if they are about you will soon spot one.
|It's as busy as you'd expect from a Club 18-30 resort, but keep walking and you'll find a long stretch of beach where development has been prevented by the Marine Park.|
4.0A big sandy beach which rarely gets crowded despite new tourist developments nearby. Plenty of tourist facilities nearby without feeling overly commercialised.
|Often criticised, mainly because in many places there is no beach! At least the water is shallow with a sandy bottom making it good for bathing.|
4.4An important nesting beach for the Loggerhead Sea Turtles and very well maintained by the Marine Park. It's beach you should visit during your holiday.
|Fairly narrow in places, but quite a long beach so it only gets crowded close to the resort centre.|
|Exotic looking beach with fine sand and good facilities. There are plenty of small fish to see if you go snorkelling at the rocky end of the beach.|
|A beautiful beach and an important nesting ground for the Loggerhead Sea Turtles, accessed via a long and bumpy dirt road. Definitely one for the rental car!|
4.0A huge expanse of sandy beach which is great for those who would don't need a sunbed, or a crowd.
|For a while in 2008 this was a deserted naturist beach, but not now the Zante Royal Palace Hotel has reopened.|
|Shipwreck beach can only accessed by boat but many people use the viewing platform on the cliffs above for a spectacular photography opportunity.|
|A beautiful series of small beaches and all within easy walking distance of the nearby resort of Alykanas.|
|A tidy and well run beach resort. You pay for sunbeds on the beach, but sunbeds on the grassy area behind are free.|
|A very quiet area with small sandy beaches. Easy to get to if you are staying nearby in Alykes or Alykanas.|
|One of the few places on the island where British tourists are a small minority. Can get busy in peak season but otherwise quiet and relaxing.|
|Right next door to Tsilivi, Bouka beach is usually quieter and more laid-back than its big brother.|
|Not as sandy as some other beaches in Vassilikos, but still a beautiful setting with greenery surrounding the beach.|
|A small sandy beach used mainly by the residents of the neighbouring Plagos Beach Hotel.|
4.1A beautiful location and not over commercialised. It's a perfect stop-off place and within walking distance of Argassi if you're feeling fit!
|A pebbly beach in a beautiful setting well away from the main resorts so it rarely gets busy.|
|A stunning little beach famous for the aroma of 'bad eggs'. It's sulphur escaping from the surrounding rocks apparently!|
|No big hotels in this area. A series of small beaches which are usually very quiet except in July or August|
|Often discovered by accident, this is a haven of peace and tranquillity despite being within walking distance of Laganas!|
|Not to be confused with St Nicholas in Vassilikos, this is a handy stopover place when visiting the Shipwreck or the Blue Caves, or even while waiting for a ferry to Kefalonia.|
|A small family friendly place with a sandy beach and shallow water also offering boat trips to Marathonisi Island and the Keri Caves|
