Beach of Xigia
Beach of Xigia is about 23 km northeast of the city of Zakynthos. It is the only one on the island as its waters are healing, since the caves next to it are secreting sulfur. It is a picturesque beach, with fine golden sand and deep blue, crystal clear waters.The smell is characteristic in this area as sulfur is present in a high proportion with respect to water. The beach is ideal for those suffering from leg pains and arthritis. Previously the villagers used the brimstone to heal the wounds of their animals. Access to the beach is relatively easy, there are parking spaces right next to it. There are also a few sun loungers and umbrellas for relaxation. Finally, just before the beach there is a fish tavern offering delicious Zakynthian snacks.
