Gerakas is one of the most beautiful and most popular beaches in Zakynthos, located in the Vasilikos area, 18km south of the island capital.
This bay with the golden sand and the shallow, tirquaz waters has umbrellas and chaise-longues and it is ideal for families. There are no bars or water sports facilities as this beach is part of the Natural Sea Park for the protection of the Caretta-Caretta turtle. This is also why you will be asked to leave after sunset.
There are tavernas serving local cuisine dishes nearby.
