fantatic clear water. go to the green cafe run by an aussie and get free watermelon or coffee. £2 a sunbed and brolly. lots of fish in the shallows. steep drive down but worth it. my favouite beach. other little taverners on beach
as on all the other beaches the sunbeds and brollys were £2. no loos on this beach. long golden sand and very shallow, walked out quite far to get deep. lots of bars offering snacks and drinks. plenty of space here, music from cafes, helps if you like bob marley!
wonderful hotel. buffet meals, huge choice, 4course dinners and 3 course cooked breakfasts. all laid out round a canal. excellent entertainment with thomsons gold team and acts flown in from the uk. 90%british, no children. walk to gerakas beach, 25mins, were the turtles lay their eggs. hotel beach 5min walk or by hotel lift. friendliest waiters and staff. towels at reception. lots of tours, cafolonia by ferry, but car hire best, visit the wonderful dafni beach and banana beach. you will have a wonderful time .
al la carte is offered once a week but we only took the option once as the buffet dinner was so good for choice, salad bar to start, then soup, then buffet of 4 meats(one sort being carved) fish lots of different veggies and lots of different fruits and the lovely sweet greek desserts. breakfast is cereals, fruit, cooked bacon, eggs(different ways) sausage mushroom tomatoes then lots of different breads and fruit juice and teas and coffee in different forms. 3 hotels here on the cliff, no shops near by . this hotel is the best the imperial is full of children and noisy and the royal is okay but by far the best is this hotel.
yes this is a super beach, although i would give it tied first position with dafni beach. if u stay at platzzo di zante, the gold thomson hotel, u can easily walk here. limited sunbeds and no beach side taverna or loos due to the turtle eggs laid in the sand. get here before 11am to get sunbed, taverna at top of the road has information office concerning turtles. shop owners very friendly and keen to teach u greek. first view of this beach takes your breath away, dont miss it
once again a lovely beach with great snorkling around the rock area.water so clear and clean.
i dont know why this hotel has 4/10 and the royal palace has a higher score;this hotel was far superior than the imperial or the royal, being the other 2 hotels in this 3 hotel group
