A lovely quiet place to spend the day good food available and a beautiful sea to cool down in. A little bit of a trek to get down in the car but we’ll worth it.

This was probably our favourite beach on the island. We stayed clear of the main part of the beach, and if you want somewhere a little quieter away from it all, there is a long strip to the side which very few people seem to...More

Dafni beach is definitely the opposite to for example Laganas beach. The sea and sand is very beautiful, many rocks and stones. Nice restaurant (one was still open, other one already closed for the winter season). It’s quite a difficult way to come here, please...More

The beach here is lovely, the road (track) to get to it is rough so care is needed, but once there is worth it. Absolutely lovely beach and the snorkelling is some of the best on the island

First of all- to get there on the good, cemented road you’ll need to put dafni tavern on google maps. Easy trip made with a Hyundai i10 (remember to turn the AC off when you leave..so you can climb up using the 2nd gear) That...More

The beach itself is spectacular with amazing views. However, the approach road is very hairy and frankly the beach doesn't compensate for the road...pothole terrors and appalling road surface with very little passing spaces for such a steep and bendy road. The car parking is...More

We had problems to find the beach because road signs are little bit confusing, so we got there with asking people along the way. The road is bad, full of holes, very steep. When you get there it could be a problem to find the...More

this beach is lovely. You can join the crowd or you can get a nice peaceful spot, its all up to you. We loved coming here, the bay is so shallow and the sandy beach is lovely. Take the road towards the Bel Mare restaurant....More

One of our most preferred beaches in Zakynthos, with clear waters and a nice view of the small turtle island, umbrellas are not allowed on the beach since it is a protected beach for the Caretta-Caretta.

So glad we hired a car and found this lovely beach, I'd given up all hope to be honest , it was quite a twisty road down but worth the pain. We arrived at about 11 so still a few parking spaces to be had...More
