Gerakas Beach, Vasilikos

4.3
#1 of 9 in Parks in Vasilikos
Beach · Nature / Park
One of the island's most scenic and unspoiled beaches, Gerakas Beach boasts golden sand and clear turquoise water. Rent a lounge chair or go for a dip along the calm, shallow shore. Amenities here are more limited than many beaches in the area, so bring a lunch or snacks and lots of water. Please be aware that this is a protected area of the National Marine Park and an important nesting ground for loggerhead turtles. Watch for any nests you may disrupt and if you are lucky enough to see a turtle hatch, do not disturb it. Before you head to Vasilikos, plan trip itinerary details with our user-friendly Vasilikos online road trip planner, to make sure you see all that Vasilikos has to offer, including Gerakas Beach.

  • A little gem of a beach, clear azure water, No noisy watersports, Free parking, It's protected because it's a Turtle nesting beach, no rubbish, beach bars, although there are a couple of restaurants.....  more »
  • A lovely quiet piece of beach here. Great value beds and beach umbrellas. Great place to swim and see the sunset. We loved our day here. It doesn’t have a beach bar due to the turtles nesting. But...  more »
  • This is a wonderful piece of nature! There’re turtles nests so you won’t find any bars, loud music, restaurants by the sea, but you can find plenty of it near the parking. 2 sunbeds will cost you...  more »

  • Wonderful and quiet beach. There are only sunbeds for rental and in order to eat or drink you need to walk about 200 m to nearest restaurant. However, it is one of my favorites beaches.
  • The beach is very well maintained. No garbage lying around. And the water..water was crystal clear. You could see up to 10 meters away underwater. Also, there is free parking and a restaurant right next to the beach. Had a lot of fun here. Really an awesome experience!
  • Favorite beach of Zakynthos. It is very quiet, quite easy to reach and offers a nice view on cliffs. You can rent sunbeds and an umbrella, but can also chose to walk a bit further and just lay on your towel. When you walk towards to end of the beach, there's a nudist area.
  • The sunset in the place is definitely worth to see!!! The see is clean and warm - suitable for small children. Sunbeds are for 8 EUR. However there are no showers not toilets
  • This beach is super beautiful. There are not many facilities at all. The nature around it is stunning. I’d recommend to go there for the sunset.
