Vassilikos, Zakynthos Island

Situated at a distance of 15,5 kilometers Southeastern to the town of Zakynthos, Vassilikos is a small scenic tourist resort, inland but in very short distance (no more than 1500 meters) from the lovely beaches of the Southeastern area of the island. Found within an overgrown environment, the village counts some 250 permanent residents.

Once in the area, you may see the church of Aghios Nicolaos with the wonderful wood-carved icon screen; you may also visit the church of Panaghia Dakryrooussa (“Virgin in Tears”). Don’t miss to go to Potamia to visit the small but very interesting Folk Museum (“Memorosa”). The Museum has nice collections of local costumes, both of men and of women, hand-woven textiles, traditional house ware and tools, decorated furniture and a good number of old photos, showing the island as it was before the destructive earthquake of 1953.

Finally, you may see the islet of Pelouso, a protected area of reproduction of the turtle caretta-caretta.

Several hotels of all categories, studios and rooms to let, all with excellent service and facilities, are available both within the village and in the area around. Most of them are open from April or May until October.

You will enjoy swimming, sunbathing and sea sports at the beaches of the area, many of them very well organised. You may choose from Gerakas, Porto Roma, Aghios Nicolaos and Banana at the South, or Porto Zoro, Vourderi and Kaminia at the North. The closest to the village is found at a distance of 1 kilometer, while the most “remote” is found some 6,5 kilometers far away. All of them are lovely, not only do they have a crystal clear sea, but also they offer a scenic environment, the best of them being the beach of Gerakas.

A local feast (“panighyri”) takes place on the 15 th of August, in honor of the Assumption of Virgin Mary.

For health problems, you may address to the health services of the nearby capital Zakynthos, 15,5 kilometers far away at the Northwest.

Access from the town of Zakynthos (15,5 kilometers far away) is easy by taxi and by rented or private car and motorbikes.
