Banana Beach

There are plenty of beach clubs and bars along Banana Beach to ensure that you have everything you need for a really chilled out day at the beach in Zante. 

A great stop off point to eat during the day is the Ionion Restaurant and Beach Bar on Banana Beach.

The Ionion is well sign posted from the main road as you head south into Vasilikos.

They provide great facilities to help you enjoy your day to the full.

It is the food at the Ionion that really makes this spot well worth the visit. The restaurant is overlooking a wide expanse of the Ionion Sea and offers some of the best traditional Greek Cuisine in Zakynthos.

We love having a plate of fresh fish here right on the beach!

Banana Beach, in the centre of the Vasilikos region, is one of the longest beaches in Zakynthos.

You will find quite a variety of places to relax and things to do here on Banana Beach. There is a selection of Relax Bars and Beach Clubs, traditional Greek Tavernas, and plenty of watersports on offer. Alternatively, you can find a quite patch of sand with no one else around to set up and relax for the day.


Banana Beach is just along the coastline from the popular beach of Porto Zorro. The sprawling expanse of Banana Beach is one of the longest stretches of beach in Zakynthos and yet remains really natural, not nearly as affected by tourism as the beaches of Kalamaki and Laganas.

  • There are a few developments along the beach catering for tourists mainly tropical style, palm fringed canteens and beach bars. These Relax bars dotted along Banana Beach provide shade from the sun, hammocks to relax in, and delicious refreshments and meals on offer throughout the day.

  • There are plenty of loungers and umbrellas along Banana Beach and you will always find somewhere to retreat from the sun, yet because of the length of the beach it still maintains a natural and unspoilt feel with long patches of empty sand.

  • Popular with locals and tourists alike, the sea water here is shallow and crystal clear. This is a lovely spot for swimming and you will often find locals spending their afternoons here a sure sign that this is one of the nicest places to chill out in Zante.

Banana Beach is great for a casual stroll or a brisk beach walk.

You can walk from the end of Banana Beach right down to Plaka at the other end, and even over the cliffs to St Nicholas. This is a great way of getting in a bit of exercise during your day and taking in the full expanse of this gorgeous beach.
