Makris Gialos Beaches - Zakynthos Greece
Makris Gialos is a lovely beach in the north of the island. It is a fairly small beach but has crystal clear waters and is set in impressive scenery.
Small caves can be reached from this beach, ideal for the adventurous to seek out and discover. A diving school is located nearby as are several tavernas serving traditional Greek food. The water here is deep, so this is not the best beach for families with young children but is ideal for couples wishing to escape crowds and have a little peace and privacy.
An easily accessible beach as it is just off a fairly main road where you can park your car, it is a lovely place for a day out away from busy tourist resorts.
