The beach Gaidaros Just off the beach of Tsilivi. A part of belonging to the community of Planou and the other belongs to the community of Tragaki. The natural point that separates  it is a river that flows in this creek. A small hill also separates Gaidaros  beach from  Tsilivi beach. Located 8 km northeast of the town of Zakynthos.
Consists of sand and in some places there are a few pebbles. The water is shallow, warm and crystal clear.It is well organized with sun beds and umbrellas and  water sports. It is not very crowded and tourist traffic in the region is strong and which takes place just a few meters from the beach, is considered a quiet beach.

William Blake, 17571827

Ah! sunflower, weary of time,
Who countest the steps of the sun,
Seeking after that sweet golden clime
Where the traveller’s journey is done;

Where the youth pined away with desire,
And the pale virgin shrouded in snow,
Arise from their graves and aspire;
Where my sunflower wishes to go.

“A large drop of sun lingered on the horizon and then dripped over and was gone, and the sky was brilliant over the spot where it had gone, and a torn cloud, like a bloody rag, hung over the spot of its going. And dusk crept over the sky from the eastern horizon, and darkness crept over the land from the east.”
John Steinbeck, The Grapes of Wrath

This summer again for a few days in beautiful Chiliadou beach just outside Nafpaktos. I just wanted to introduce the beautiful ARMIDA restaurant where my friends Styliani and Nikos offer traditional and modern plates next to the small port of Chiliadou. If you visit Chiliadou don’t forget to visit this beautiful family business as and all the other surrounding graphic taverns.
