Makris Gialos Beach is situated 30 km to the north of Zakynthos town. The beach is not very busy as well not very organized. A sandy beach with crystal waters ideal for snorkeling. If you like snorkling and diving you can take to tour to the Blue Cave nearby.  There are no tourist facilities available, no umbrellas and sunbeds, so dont go there unprepared. Nearby the villages you will find facilities you need.
