Zante Beaches - Dafni Beach - Holidays in Zakynthos
Dafni Beaches - Zakynthos Greece
Dafni beach is located in the south of Zante, in the area of Vassilikos.
The beaches in this area belong to the Zakynthos Marine Park, which protects the wildlife in the vicinity. This beach is long, wide and sandy, breathtakingly beautiful, with splendid views across the gulf of Laganas.
The famous and unfortunately endangered Caretta Caretta turtles nest their eggs here, which is why the beach is protected and at times some parts of be off limits to the public in order to protect the turtle's nests (which are also caged to prevent damage). No visitors are allowed on this beach at night.
There are a couple of tavernas on this beach but no water sports are available so as not to disturb the habitat of the turtles.
This beach has a special designated parking area, as no cars are allowed directly on the beach. A free mini bus service takes visitors to the entry point of the beach - where there is also a barrier to prevent cars.
