The beach at Makris Gialos is particularly pretty and quite unique in Zakynthos. The water here often takes on a green hue, reflecting on the lush vegetation surrounding the beach.
There is a small snack bar over the road from Makris Gialos beach, where you can find light lunch supplies and drinks to enjoy during the day. Just up the hill, the Pilarinos Camping Taverna provides a great place for lunch in the heat of the day. The Taverna boasts beautiful views over Makris Gialos beach and the sparkling Ionian Sea.
