The village of Gerakas in the far south tip of Vasilikos Zante, has one the best beaches in Zakynthos. It is located on the southern tip of the Vasilikos area. The beach is really spectacular – framed with jagged cliffs and sweeping golden sand.

The beach here is one of the main nesting grounds of the Caretta Caretta Turtles and throughout the summer you will see small wooden structures on the beach protecting their nests. Because this is such an important natural habitat, the National Marine Park works to protect the beach as much as possible. Subsequently, this is one of the cleanest and most unspoilt beaches on the island.


Driving along the Southern Coastal road of Zante you will come to Gerekas on the most southern tip of the island. This rRegions of Zakynthos Zante greek islands is nearly completely untouched by tourism – with just one or two hotels, studios and villas tastefully dotted around the countryside.

The beach of Gerakas is one of the most naturally beautiful on the island. The sand here is soft and clean, and the waters are always sparkling and clean. At the end of the beach on the left hand-side there is natural mineral mud on the cliff face. You can apply the mud to your body and let it dry in the sun! This leaves you with silky-smooth skin and a glowing complexion.

It is at Gerakas that many of the Caretta Caretta sea turtles build their nests and lay their eggs, a fact which has made it necessary to impose strict regulations on tourist activities. You won’t find any beach sports here, and only a few sunbeds and umbrellas. There are also protective cages placed around the turtle’s nests to ensure that people don’t walk on them or disturb them while they are incubating.

There are a few Greek Tavernas and one small bar in Gerakas. The Triodi Taverna in Gerakas serves delicious, authentic Greek food. There is also a mini-market for anything you might need during your day at the beach.
