Keri...village and lake

Keri is located in the south west part of Zakynthos, 13km away from the international airport of the island and 16km away from the city of Zakynthos. The buses run on a daily basis to and from the area, not very often though, while you won’t face any problems if you choose a taxi for you transportation. Moreover you can rent a car from a company that is based in the resort or from any other car hire company on the island, since most of them deliver their cars to all the accommodations in Keri.

The Beach:

The beach of Keri consists of sand and pebbles. There are available some umbrellas and sun beds as well as some trees by the beach that will provide you with their natural shade.
