A snapshot of Limni Keriou
Stretched out along a calm bay, Limni Keriou is a laid-back little village down in southern Zakynthos. It’s a tranquil spot where everything happens along the turquoise sea – there’s authentic Greek food in the waterside tavernas and even a couple of café-bars close by the charming pint-sized port. The bay is connected to the hilltop village of Keri, a few minutes up the road, and there are lots more places to eat and drink up there.
The beach at Limni Keriou is a long stretch of sand and shingle, backed by grassy dunes and a promenade of restaurants and shops. This being a bay, the water’s always calm – plus it’s got great views of the tiny pine-clad Marathonisi Island. For a change of scene there’s Aghios Sostis Beach, 15 minutes’ drive away. Like Limni Keriou it’s got sunloungers and umbrellas, but also kayaks and pedalos to go pootling down the coast in.
The capital of the island is just 25-minutes’ drive away. All roads lead to Solomos Square – it’s a popular meeting spot and is home to the 17th-century Saint Nicholas of the Mole Church, a grand Renaissance-style structure. Just opposite is the Byzantine Museum with its striking Medieval religious wood carvings. Later in the evening, locals and tourists head off to enjoy the bars, restaurants and street musicians of San Marcos Square.
