  • good set in water, sand, warm water, difficulties with parking, a restaurant, a local tell tales about how supposedly turtles pripolzajut the evenings here laying eggs, it's all nonsense. I tested. Nobody pripolzaet. In the sea if you go on the knee and didn't move, when small fish and evil begin to bite you, feeling nasty.

  • Let me start by saying one thing: to reach this beach, there are two roads: one before you meet coming from Zante town for instance, and a second further South and close to banana beach, near gerakas. Take this second street! In fact, if you take the first you will come to a dirt parking lot, apparently free, but where some restaurants (especially Taverna Daphnis), put the nefarious touts that almost force you taking bad words, to stop and have lunch at Taverna Daphnis. If you try to access the beach, take a walk, to go to another tavern (Port Type Apple, which costs 10 times less, has a brilliant service and the food is scrumptious), they begin to threaten you. Clearly I've done minimally intimidated, and I told him that I would call the cops, and I continued on my way, going where I preferred in this magnificent and very natural beach.

  • In the sands of Dafni beach counts of aquatic turtles nest in which the eggs are laid. The nests are by volunteers who daily in the morning explore the beach marked with wooden sticks. before making the first marking places become the nest on ge dig to be sure that the turtle has laid eggs because if they really there while digging a stone or other object encounter cease the attempt and the turtle returns to the sea to give it a try again next time. In the morning during the season is sometimes clear the trail of a turtle from the shoreline towards the beach. The beach at Dafni beach is a berschermd area where few rules apply that are clearly listed on an information board. In the Bay for Dafni beach should not be hazards so one can here fine snorkelling. There are some rock formations that sometimes until just under the water surface and areas with seagrass. several small fish species are here from the surface. The depth is gradually from 0 to +/-5 mtr.

  • Perfect beach to relax in early October. Not many visitors, free sun loungers and only a few remaining turtle nests. The beach is also a snorkeling heaven with plenty of wildlife and interesting formations. A little challenging to get to by car, following a steep concrete paved road. Definitely one of top 3 beaches in Zakynthos.
  • Great beach. Tough access, but worth it. Very relaxing place,great views. Recommend Taverna Dafni, good food, nice people. Overall, one of the nicest beaches on the island.
  • Quiet lovely beach. A bit hard driving to get there but sure worth it. Nice local tavernas provide everything you might need.
  • Best snorkeling beach from Zankynthos with various water life, turtles nests, no sun umbrellas are allowed, at entry some guys from tavernas try to sell you food with the promise of free sun beds.
  • TAVERNA ANTONHS - Worst place The scam here, and scam is what it is, is to be talked into fresh fish and they avoid telling you the cost. Was charged 65 euros for ordinary bit of fish that tasted of nothing AVOID OR REGRET IT. THIS TAVERNA DESERVES TO LOSE ALL CUSTOMERS
