Two of the most popular spots for relaxing and swimming on the west coast lie next to each other, separated by just a few kilometres.
Limnionas feature striking rocky fiords and bright blue and green sea water. The fiord at Limnionas is particularly spectacular with large sea caves marking the cliff face.
From Limnionas and Porto Roxa you can take a flying leap from the rocks into the sea below. This is a fun chance for an adrenaline buzz if you are keen! Alternatively, you can dive in from slightly lower heights. The swimming here is very different from the sandy beaches of the south and east coasts of the island. Deep seas predominate on the west coast of Zakynthos and at Limionas and Porto Roxa you can be sure that your toes won’t touch the bottom. This environment is perfect for snorkelling with lots of caves to explore.
After your swim you can either relax on the rock platforms at Limnionas or on the sunbeds at Porto Roxa. There are tavernas at both beaches ready to serve you a delicious meal overlooking the sea. The taverna at Limnionas provides particularly spectacular views over the sea and tried and tested fantastic food. This is one of the most popular restaurants with Zakynthian locals and you can’t get a much better recommendation than that.
Both Limnionas and Porto Roxa can be reached by turning off the main road at the west coast village of Agios Leon.
