Dafni Beach is located in the southern part of the island on the Vasilikos area, just 18km away from Zakynthos town.
Unlike other beaches in the area, the road to Dafni is very bumpy and in pretty bad condition. It also goes on for quite a distance and there is a sharp descent near the end. But at the end you find the pleasant beach of Dafni covered with soft grainy golden sand and surrounded by emerald green hills.
Caretta Caretta turtles choose this beach for breeding. That’s why there are no water attractions or loud parties here. The beach is rarely crowded, which makes it perfect for those who like calmness.
Families with children like to come here because it’s not deep near the shorel, the descent is smooth, the depth starts rising about 150 meters away from the shore and the waters are warm.
