Psarou Beach area in Zakynthos Island

Porta del mar Beach villas are located over a pretty, private cove in the middle of Psarou beach, placed between the resorts of Alykes and Tsilivi, on the North-Eastern coast of Zakynthos Island. It is a green, quiet area, surrounded by a rich Mediterranean flora (olive groves, vineyards, orange and lemon trees, flower gardens, vegetable patch etc).

Psarou beach is just 12 km from Zante town. This quite sandy beach has been awarded with the Blue flag over the last 10 consecutive years, thanks to its clean waters and its unspoiled natural beauty.

It is very safe for all ages and ideal for swimming, snorkeling and canoeing. The waters are crystal-clear and in the summer months they are very calm until the evening hours. In some evening hours a moderate breeze blows from North-West to make us all feel nice and cool in the warm months of the summer season.

The surrounding area provides:
  • Romantic walks along our beach, stretching for more than 500 meters and the neighboring beaches of Amoudi, Alikanas , Alykes and Xigia.
  • Interesting walks through the beautiful olive groves that cover an extensive area of hills, valleys and small villages, ideal for trekking and photography.
  • Various rentals for a wide range of your holiday activities, such as: Horse riding, boat trips, water sports, fishing boats to rent privately and a lot more!
  • Easy access to the famous Shipwreck beach (by rental boats from your villa) or the unique Sulfa Beach “Xigia” or the stunning Blue Caves by a rental boat or our motor boat (after arrangement) for unforgettable boat trips in the most remote and unspoiled beaches of Zakynthos!
  • Shopping evenings and night life in the nearby towns of Alykanas, Alykes and Tsilivi with plenty of Supermarkets, Souvenir shops, Bars, Night clubs etc.
  • Within walking distance (50 – 200 meters from your villa) you will find many taverns, groceries and bakery.
