Xigia Beach, is a unique beach located on the northeastern coast of Zakynthos, near to Makris Gialos Beach. It is situated in a small cove surrounded by cliffs and greenery, and is known for its crystal-clear turquoise waters and its sulfuric aroma.
The beach gets its name from the natural sulfur springs located nearby, which release sulfuric gases and minerals into the water. These minerals are believed to have therapeutic and healing properties, making Xigia Beach a popular destination for people seeking natural remedies for various skin and health issues.
The beach itself is relatively small and pebbly, with clear waters that are ideal for swimming and snorkeling. There are no sun loungers or umbrellas for rent, but there are a few tavernas nearby where you can enjoy local cuisine and drinks.
Xigia Beach is popular with locals and tourists alike, and can get quite busy during peak season. However, its unique qualities and natural beauty make it well worth a visit.
