Pure sand and exceptional scenery filled with lush greenery and the endless horizon far away compose this dream. As part of the National Marine Park, this beach has been known as a hatching place for loggerhead sea turtle Caretta Caretta. Then, it is time for Laganas beach. This is the most cosmopolitan resort in Zakynthos, with crowds flocking the beach almost every day during summer. It is still gorgeous, though!

They also come with great facilities, as they are super organized and may serve the needs of all travelers in pursuit of a wonderful day out in the sun. Then, there is Makris Gialos beach. This is not an uncommon name among beaches, meaning Long Bay. And its size justifies the name most eloquently. Shallow water makes this beach ideal for young children and families.
