Gerakas Beaches - Zakynthos Greece
Gerakas is considered by many to be one of the most beautiful beaches on Zakynthos (Zante). It is a long sandy beach and is a nesting place for the Caretta Caretta turtles.
Like other beaches on the south coast of the island it belongs to the National Marine Park which works hard to protect the wildlife in the area. No water sports or beach bars are available in order to keep noise and disruption to the turtles to a minimum; this has also helped maintain the beauty and serenity of this splendid beach. It is also forbidden to stick umbrellas in the sand because of turtle nests in certain parts of the beach.
Just a short walk from the beach are several snack bars and restaurants, but visitors would be advised to take a bottle of water.
This beach is well signposted, easy to drive to and once you arrive there has a designated parking area.
