Thomas Elena Beach Bar

Looks like home we call our secret garden very relaxing and welcoming atmosphare

Reviewed By WingtipCork - West Kilbride, United Kingdom

What a wonderful couple and our favourite place to be. Fab views, drinks, in heavenly surroundings! Nibbles provided with the drinks too
Free sun-beds without pressure to buy lots of drinks. Didn’t try toasties but had ice creams.
Walk out onto the beautiful decking and down to the beach where you can walk out far and actually get shallower as you go after the first small dip.
Really can’t do this place justice in words you just have to go there, and be like us and never want to leave.
Good place for a wedding if anyone is looking for a venue!

Agios Dionisios Church

Reviewed By holidaymanWashington - Newcastle upon Tyne, United Kingdom

This relatively modern church with it's separate bell tower is positioned opposite to the entrance to the port. The exterior is stylish but relatively plain and belies what lies within. The interior is truly magnificent; having painted walls and ceiling, akin to the Cistine Chapel. The scenes depict various stages of Christ's life and that of the apostles.
Simple but colourful stained glass windows, spread their light across the floor and huge chandeliers hang from the ceiling. It is unfortunate that the church wasn't lit up when we visited, as it would have shown the interior in it's full magnificence. Natural light only, keeps the interior on the dark side. The remainder of the church is ornately decorated and there are some plush seats at the rear, to spend a few moments of quiet reflection.
At the bottom right hand side, up a couple of steps, lies the even more ornate silver tomb of St. Denis, the island's patron Saint. Above is a fine silver chandelier. His entombed body is taken in procession around the town on his Saint's day, August 24th. Ladies must cover their shoulders and scarves are available for this. Photography is strictly prohibited inside the church. Candles are available at the rear, for a donation, should you wish to light one. There is also a gift shop to one side of the main entrance, selling mostly iconography.

Mario's Cave and Turtle Boat Trips

Reviewed By PatriciaOv - Amsterdam

We read some great reviews on TripAdvisor so we decided to book with Mario. It was wonderful! He knows lots of stuff, is passionate about the sea and its creatures and takes you to all the best spots around Zakynthos. At Porto Roma we met Mario. He took us to quiet spots away from the busy areas, we spent some time on turtle beach and around the beautiful blue caves. We saw some turtles which was really amazing. We could swim at all the spots which was really nice on a hot day. He has snorkeling gear to borrow. By diving he brought up some starfish, sea slugs etc for us to see.
A great boat trip, we loved it!
Thanks Mario and greetings from Amsterdam!

Kalamaki Beach

Near Laganas, in Laganas Bay - natural reservation for the Caretta Caretta turtles.

Reviewed By Tbalzano - Stockholm County, Sweden

An amazing beach with shallow waters surrounded by hills. It's really beautifull here and you can walk out really far without having to worry about swimming. If you go for a charter here, make sure you stay at the beach instead of the pool, it will highten your vacation and you also get to see the view.
Also, the airplanes comes flying over the beach wich is really cool at first. We didn't find it disturbing at all, after a while we hardly even noticed them.

Bohali Castle

Reviewed By holidaymanWashington - Newcastle upon Tyne, United Kingdom

On our first visit, we arrived at 2.32 pm only to find that the last admission is 2.30 pm. Our second visit we arrived at 1.55 pm, only to find that they were closing at 2.00 pm that day. Third time lucky and thank goodness entry was free that day, as it would not have been worth the €4 per person, normal entry price. Kudos to the many super fit people who walk up to the Castle. We would have been well miffed if we had walked up there twice, only to find that we could not get in. Fortunately we drove up and that was bad enough.
Once inside, there is a further hill to climb up through 2 archways. There are some quite rugged stones to negotiate, so sturdy walking shoes recommended. Most of the interior is shaded by large pines. If you turn to the left, it leads past the last standing remnants of the Fortress, to a viewing platform affording great views of Zakynthos town and harbour. The views are equally as good, further down in the village of Bochali and there are some nice eateries too. You can spend as little or as long as you like, as there is quite a large area to look around, if you so desire.
The week before, there had been a forest fire, next to the village of Bochali. Whilst it was spectacular watching the helicopter and seaplane, dropping water repeatedly on the fire, it must have been terrifying for the locals, as it was put out inches from the restaurants and the pretty, little church. It is a good job there was no wind that day and that it was still light enough, for the pilots to operate.

Nice sandy beach with some incredible restaurants and bars. You get pestered a lot by people selling sunbeds. I found it really hard to ignore them and not engage in conversation but this is sometimes the best thing to do. Definitely visit Mambo!

The Beer Academy

Reviewed By Mike Arran - Manchester England

The Beer Academy is tucked away at the top of the road leading uphill from the main "crossroads" in Argassi. It's busy most times - normally with at least two sports showing on the screens. There are several pool tables too.
And it's not just beer - there's wines, cocktails and spirits too. Owner managed, staff are friendly and prices are reasonable. If you like to drink in a sports bar atmosphere you should definitely find your way here.

Banana Beach

Reviewed By Anna-marie31

We visited here for the day and arrived early.
Great parking and covered as well which we thought was a great idea.
Quite a long walk down the wooden path to the beach and in the heat it was quite difficult for my father in-law.
We saw lots of lizards on the walk down.
We arrived at the beach and quickly chose some recliners, a guy approached us and we paid for the beds.
Sat back and relaxed. Plenty going on here like inflatable rides. Good place to be.
