“Egg smelly beach”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 July 2014

It's a very small beach witch can be accessed only by see. The water is rich with sulfur which is said that is good for the health but it smells of a boiled egg even when you are out of water and dry.

“Sulphur waters”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 July 2014

Good for a stop off, but wouldn't want to be there all day. Small beach with sulphur rich waters, 5min walk from bar above.

“It's a must-see”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 July 2014

The beach area is a bit small but quiet. No sand only stones, so make sure you have the swimming shoes. The water is pleasantly warm, really contains sulfur and smells like it (but the smell is not that bad). One of the nicest beaches in Zakynthos. Definitely worth a visit and a swim.

“amazing beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 July 2014

difficult to find...... but worth it,
amazing pictures to be taken from here. The sand and fine stone is so white
and the sea so blue/turquoise. You can smell the sulphur; it is good for your
skin.....but tarnished our jewellery !!
shallow clear waters.
