This summer 4 families were traveling to beautiful Zakynthos, and since we all have little kids we were thinking that Plaka Beach would be perfect, but... what a disappointment! Beautiful scenery, but more that horrible service. Guy that was in charge of the bar & the beach was more like Cerberus guarding the Hades! We took 8 sunbeds, and while... More

The beach is nice and relatively quiet. If you eat at the restaurant you can use the beds on the lawn for free. The restaurant is excellent and worthwhile visiting. The guy at the snack bar is as mentioned by other reviewers is highly annoying, treating people as if they are cheaters . Apparently you are not allowed to eat... More

Beware of the little Hitler in charge of the bar and sunbeds. Spent 17 euros on drinks and was refused wifi password until we had eaten in the restaurant. Needless to say we went elsewhere. Went next door to the much friendlier Vrahos beach.

The lad,maybe the owners son does need to smile a bit more and make an effort but maybe he is new to looking after holidaymakers and just... More

Lovely location at beach , inside and outside seating area, food nice but nothing special , owner not very welcoming, even after going there 3-4 times his teenage surly son was worse I guess he didn't want to be there and would never smile or say hello, the staff will let this place down badly if they are not careful

This is such a lovely place to visit. We have been visiting for years, the welcome is always so warm and friendly, the beach, sunbeds and sea is excellent, the beach bar great during the day, Spiros is wonderful, the taverna with Andreas and family (Mama and Papa) is brilliant in the evening with excellent food. Nothing is too much... More

My family and I have been visiting this beach for years, and I got married there three years ago, it's an amazing spot and we couldn't wait to get back this year. The beach itself and the sea is heavenly. Sandy and clear, it's a perfect place. The snack bar is awesome and Spyros makes it, he's so funny. The... More

The beach is nice but the service wasrude and unwelcoming. The cafe and beach next to it was a lot better. I would not recommend wasting your precious vacation days there.
