On the southern part of Zakynthos, at the Vasilikos area, 18km from the capital centre, Dafni beach is part of the National Sea Park for the protection of the Caretta-Caretta turtles.

This is a long sandy beach from where you can enjoy the panoramic view of Laganas bay, while right across you can see the uninhabited small island Pelouzo. There are umbrellas and chaise-longues as well as tavernas that are open only during the day so that the turtles are not disturbed.
